***The information below relates to the 2023 awards. Further information about the 2024 awards will be announced soon***
The UK Pensions Awards - now in their 26th year - remain the industry's most prestigious accolades.
They shine the light on excellence and recognise the advisers, providers and investment managers that offer the highest level of innovation, performance and service to occupational pension schemes and their members, and have done the most to improve this over the past year.
The awards look at advisers and providers across 40 different categories and are rigorously judged by a panel of senior scheme managers, trustees and advisers.
Highlights for the 2023 awards:
• Finalist logo - free to display on your marketing; show your existing and potential clients your achievement in being shortlisted.
• Categories – including three new awards, the Pension Scheme of the Year Awards - Pensions Scheme of the Year, Best Pension Scheme Communications Strategy and Pension Scheme Risk Reduction Initiative - dedicated to the achievements of pension schemes themselves.
• Live Judges Q&A - As well as publishing an entry guidance pack, we will also be holding a live Q+A with judges at 11am on 2nd December to explain exactly what they are looking for in submissions and to give you a chance to pose your questions to judges.
Highlights from the 2022 awards ceremony:
Professional Pensions is committed to the journey in becoming more sustainable. By using the guidelines set out by Ecovadis, we will be working towards the accreditation. The goal is to reduce paper consumption across events and improve recycling rates, curb food waste and alter menus with an aim to include locally sourced, organic produce. We have also committed to deliver carbon offsetting at events wherever possible and provide delegates with accessible venues. We will be closely evaluating each event and considering how we can improve in the following areas; energy, transport, water usage, recycling, economic and local environment/community.
Incisive Media have partnered with Ecosphere+ to ensure all our remaining greenhouse gas emissions are offset. Working with Ecosphere+, we calculate the emissions from all our events, including those from event operations, venues and delegates. We then purchase the equivalent number of carbon offset credits to counter-act our activities. These credits are supporting the protection of vital rainforest in Peru, by funding conservation work and creating sustainable sources of income for locals to minimise incentives for deforestation.
