ClientEarth attended the Global Good Awards last night, along with many other businesses, NGOs, charities and social enterprises of all sizes dedicated to doing good globally. This unique ceremony aims to recognise and reward change in all organisations working towards a more ethical and sustainable future.
ClientEarth CEO James Thornton won the Gold award for an Outstanding Individual in Corporate Leadership. ClientEarth and BMB’s Poisoned Playgrounds campaign was also recognised as “One to Watch” in the Best Agency / Consultancy Campaign category.
ClientEarth was honoured to attend the awards, which were the first of its kind. The Global Good Awards team worked to create a completely sustainable event. This included marketing materials made from 100% recycled and carbon balanced paper, eco-friendly printing technology, ensuring for carbon balanced delegate travel, and a fully vegan food and drinks menu.
James Thornton, chief executive of ClientEarth, said: “I am greatly honoured to receive this award and delighted to see the hard work of ClientEarth’s air team recognised as well. Each of ClientEarth’s legal projects is changing the world for the better and recognition like this is always built on the bedrock of my team’s expertise, vision and industry. It is a true pleasure to lead them.”
