Now in its seventh year, the P.E.A. (People. Environment. Achievement.) Awards is the UK’s leading sustainability awards, honouring the individuals and teams behind the products, services and businesses that are changing the face of our planet.
Across sectors ranging from money to the arts, the P.E.A. Awards identifies and celebrates the green heroes who are taking matters into their own hands and providing inspiring alternatives to business as usual.
These sustainability pioneers are recognised and rewarded at our glamorous green carpet event, with music, entertainment and plenty of great food and drink! This year’s ceremony will be held in London on Friday 13 October, and the theme will be the Day of the Dead, so make sure you come dressed the part!
