edie - driving sustainable business

edie is the go-to media brand and a purpose-driven force for sustainability in business, empowering sustainability, energy and environmental professionals of all levels to make business more sustainable.

The edie network includes the flagship edie website which powers our content; a portfolio of content-led sustainability and energy events which brings that content to life; the high-level edie conference, edie Awards and Net-Zero Awards; and a dedicated network for sustainable business.

Our purpose

Named after a charismatic and devoted tea lady who worked for our publisher – Faversham House – edie was founded on an idea to make a positive difference among our audience through quality, informative journalism and inspirational, engaging events. Now, more than 25 years later, we still deliver on that idea every day.

From daily news, reports and guides to facilitated networking sessions, roundtables, and live thought-leadership discussions – we provide content that helps strategic and operational teams from all major sectors make sustainability and energy an integral part of their business strategies. Nowhere is this purpose more prevalent than through our Mission Possible campaign which inspires and empowers businesses to ramp up efforts across all areas of sustainable development. Since launching in 2018, the campaign has encouraged hundreds of organisations, large and small, to be bold and publicly announce new commitments to achieve a sustainable future.

Ultimately, our goal is to build an army of changemakers – from young, aspiring sustainability and energy professionals through to senior, c-suite level decision-makers – in an effort to tackle the climate emergency and transform business, for good.

Our brands

edie’s website is a trusted and integral part of the workflow of more than 130,000 sustainability, energy and environmental professionals. The website delivers daily news and commentary, exclusive interviews and research, industry reports and business guides, videos, webinars and podcasts. This content is made available for free through daily and weekly newsletters, and is supported by a unique content distribution hub for product and services suppliers.

The edie Net-Zero awards – sister scheme to the edie Awards, the world’s most prestigious accolade for sustainable businesses – the Net-Zero Awards are here to honour the trailblazers driving the transition to a net-zero carbon economy. From ground-breaking innovations to leading carbon reduction programmes and collaborative initiatives, this is the platform to inspire, showcase, and be recognised by thousands of businesses and climate experts.

The edie Awards recognise and reward the incredible people, projects and partnerships that are transforming business, for good.
Approaching their 17th year, the world’s largest sustainable business awards scheme – formerly known as the Sustainability Leaders Awards – champions bold and brilliant climate leadership. From the most ambitious green business programmes through to cutting-edge green innovations; from impactful climate partnerships and social sustainability initiatives to the heroes on the ground who are driving positive change.

We know the sustainable future we want to achieve. But how are we going to achieve that future?

Mission Possible is edie’s award-winning*, purpose-driven campaign which inspires and empowers businesses to ramp up efforts across all areas of sustainable development. Through this campaign, we are showing our network of sustainability professionals and energy managers how they can achieve a sustainable future, today.

Mission Possible provides this unique insight and inspiration through the lens of five interconnected pillars related to the future of sustainable business: Energy, Resources, Mobility, The Built Environment, and Business Leadership. Across all of these pillars, we are witnessing unprecedented change. Mission Possible will chart the sustainability progress being made by businesses across the globe and inspire and empower other businesses to take new actions to drive that change themselves.

The Mission Possible campaign is delivered through a variety of digital and face-to-face formats such as themed sector insight reports, the annual Mission Possible report, the Pledge Wall, Net-Zero Live and being the official partner of the UK Government’s Green GB & NI Week.
