London Awards replaced by virtual meetings

In the light of the rapidly evolving COVID-19 outbreak, the DIT Team has decided to cancel the Sustainable Fast Track UK programme Awards in Mansion House as well as welcome evening reception at The Conduit Club, scheduled to take place in London, on 23 and 24 March 2020.

The decision has been taken after consultations with the UK government, programme partners and key stakeholders, and is motivated by the DIT team’s commitment to the safety and wellbeing of all participants as well as the social responsibility we all have to our communities.

It has been a difficult decision to make as the DIT Team is aware of how much work and effort all the teams and partners have invested so far. While we are prevented from gathering and meeting all the inspiring sustainability innovators in person, the DIT Team is dedicated to follow through on supporting all participants virtually.

We are planning an online investor matchmaking, Sustainable Fast Track UK e-book highlighting the sustainable solutions of all shortlisted participants and prize packages for finalists and winners as planned.

Sustainary’s number 1 focus is SDG 17- Partnerships for the SDGs

That’s why we’re proud to team up with the UK Trade Commission on Sustainable Fast Track UK.
