What Will Your Legacy be?

Securing the future of our planet for generations to come is a monumental challenge that requires collective effort, innovation and above all – visionary leadership. The SEAL Awards celebrate the companies and leaders across the globe that make measurable contributions to sustainability, and develop innovative initiatives that will positively impact the environment for centuries to come.

Honoring Real Progress

Each year, the SEAL Awards recognize (a) the 50 Most Sustainable Companies in the World and (b) the most impactful and innovative Environmental Initiatives

Accountability Through Recognition

Our core beliefs maintain that environmental progress requires true leadership, leadership deserves recognition, and recognition is a form of accountability.


The SEAL Awards honor businesses committed to driving true progress towards a lasting, healthy planet.


The SEAL Business Sustainability Award recognizes achievement in two categories:


(1) Overall Business Sustainability and (2) Environmental Initiatives
