Planet Tracker voted Non-Profit of the YEAR in Environmental Finance Impact Awards 2021

London 6 September 2021: We are delighted and honoured to announce that Planet Tracker has been selected as winner of the NGO/Charity/Not for Profit category in the Environmental Finance Impact Awards 2021 by an independent panel of judges made up of impact investors from across the globe.

The award serves as recognition of Planet Tracker’s tireless work to investigate the risk of market failure related to environmental limits and to highlight opportunities for positive change since its inception – made possible by the generous support of our funders and a tribute to the extraordinary dedication and incisive thought leadership of the Planet Tracker team.

In just three years, Planet Tracker has achieved a global profile for our work across four main programmes – Seafood, Food & Land Use, Plastic, and Textiles – which address some of the most pressing environmental challenges facing the world, from deforestation, fish stock depletion, plastic waste to toxic chemical pollution and water (mis)management.

New ideas and insights are translated into hard-hitting reports and recommendations for the financial community through an intensive, personalised engagement process, with recognition from leading investors, international bodies such as the UN and media across five continents.

This latest recognition of our work is the third we have received this year – earlier in 2021, Planet Tracker was named one of only four ‘Key Players to Watch’ in the category: ‘Nature Takes Root on the Balance Sheet’ in the GreenBiz State of Green Business 2021. And, for the second year in a row, we were named a winner of the Environmental Finance Sustainable Investment Awards 2021 for our thought leadership paper on sustainable investing, Investors can scale sustainable aquaculture and reduce overfishing through green and blue bonds.

Sleeve labelling provides a short-term solution to boost recycling rates, Planet Tracker says

Currently less than nine per cent of plastic waste is recycled and attention is too often focused on the container’s material to the neglect of the type of label used. However, the availability of recycled plastics is not currently able to meet this rising demand. Consumer brands should adopt a self-help approach which ensures that labels are of the same material as the container.
