edie is an industry-leading, purpose-driven business media brand that empowers sustainability, energy and environmental professionals of all levels to make business more sustainable through award-winning* content and events.
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 UK’s biggest sustainability and energy exhibition, Net-Zero Live; the high-level Sustainability Leaders Forum and inspirational Sustainability Leaders Awards; and three dedicated communities of sustainability, energy and future business leaders.
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 20 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.
edie’s website is a trusted and integral part of the workflow of more than 100,000 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.
Net-Zero Live is the only UK event that connects energy, sustainability and resource efficiency professionals with the information, advice and solutions they need to accelerate climate action. Taking place at the NEC Birmingham on 19-20 May 2020, the event attracts thousands of visitors and vendors for two days of inspirational talks, informative seminars, interactive features and facilitated networking.
The multi-award-winning Sustainability Leaders Forum is edie’s biggest business event of the year, uniting 600+ corporate leaders, sustainability experts, government representatives, investors and NGOs for two days of thought-provoking talks and interactive workshops – all with a laser-like focus on transforming business, for good.
The associated Sustainability Leaders Awards is the UK’s largest sustainability awards scheme, recognising the people, projects and initiatives that are accelerating business transformation. From the best efficiency programmes to product innovations; from stakeholder engagement and social sustainability initiatives to the people on the ground who are making change happen – the Awards celebrate and reward the sustainability excellence across all sectors.
Designed for those leading their company’s sustainability strategies and those responsible for implementing them, the Sustainability Leaders Club is an exclusive, member-only programme of free, informal, peer-to-peer networking and events, creating the space for conversation and collaboration amongst senior sustainability professionals in the drive to affect transformational change.
Designed for in-house energy leaders, managers and practitioners the Energy Leaders Club creates the space for new conversations and collaborations, allowing members to share best practice, build knowledge and support one another. The Club aims to spark new ideas and actions among forward-thinking energy specialists, with a focus on energy reduction, security, and minimising carbon emissions.
More than just a list, the edie 30 Under 30 club will provide these rising sustainability stars with an unrivalled opportunity to connect with one another, share ideas, gain valuable recognition and develop their careers throughout the year.
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.
