Ashden's mission is to accelerate transformative climate solutions and build a more just world. Our awards, events, networks and analysis support climate innovation in the UK and developing countries around the world.

Ashden can only create a fairer, better, low-carbon future if we improve diversity in our organisation and work for change in the wider climate sector. A broader range of views and experiences will help us understand the challenges different communities face, and support solutions that work for all. To achieve our goals we are working with fellow members of the Sainsbury Family Charitable Trust on a common diversity, equity and inclusion policy. In recent years we have taken practical steps such as improving the diversity of our board and awards judging panels, and introducing inclusive recruitment measures. But there is much more to do – so we pledge to continue investing in action, and to monitoring and sharing the results of our efforts.
