Investment Week has won a trio of awards at Aviva Investors’ Sustainability Media Awards 2023, including the coveted Publication of the Year title.
Now in their third year, the awards recognise excellence in reporting on sustainability-linked topics across the UK media.
In his opening comments at this year’s awards ceremony on November 8, Aviva Investors CEO Mark Versey said the bar had been raised every year, with 2023 being no exception, while he reiterated the importance of these awards in highlighting thought-provoking work in this space.
Commenting on Investment Week winning the Publication of the Year category, the judges said the title “has been at the forefront of investment journalism for over 25 years, leading the way in not only editorial standards, but also in the rapidly expanding world of events, awards and conferences”.
“Its reputation as one of the leading publications covering sustainability issues has continually been bolstered by industry-leading events,” the judges added.
“To produce such high-quality ESG content whilst maintaining high standards of reporting across the entire universe of investment products and sectors is no mean feat!”
The brand’s annual Sustainable Investment Festival (SIF) and plethora of ESG-focused events were highlighted by Versey on the night.
The awards judges said “the reputation of this industry stalwart is illustrated by its lead role in this year’s third iteration of the Sustainable Investment Festival, which attracted over 300 attendees and 60 expert speakers”.
Investment Week also took home Retail/Wholesale Publication of the Year, which the judges described as a “close-fought category” but added “the articles submitted by this publication stood out from the crowd for their originality and high-quality research”.
They highlighted Investment Week news editor Valeria Martinez’s in-depth investigation into Home REIT as a “particular highlight”.
In addition, the judges pointed to features editor Eve Maddock-Jones’ “thoughtful piece” on the links between overturning Roe vs Wade and investment risk, which also won Social Article of the Year.
The judging panel said the story “challenged the view that events in the US had no bearing for a UK-focused audience…. garnering praise from CFAs, fellow journalists, and of course, our esteemed judging panel”.
