UN Global Climate Action Awards 2019

Spearheaded by UN Climate Change’s Momentum for Change initiative, the UN Global Climate Action Award shines a light on the most innovative, scalable and replicable examples of what people around the world are doing to tackle climate change.

Are you leading a results-driven project that is successfully addressing climate change?

Past winners have included Google, Microsoft, and the Government of British Columbia, Canada.

Organizations, cities, industries, universities, governments, and others taking bold leadership on climate change can nominate their work for a UN Global Climate Action Award.

The award, the focus of the United Nations Climate Change’s Momentum for Change initiative, recognizes the most innovative projects in the field of climate action.

Winning activities encompass scalable and replicable examples of what people are doing to address climate change, in the hope of inspiring others to act.

The selected activities will be recognized and celebrated at the UN Climate Change Conference (COP 25) in Chile.

Past recipients of the award have maximized their impact and scaled up globally.


The 2019 award will recognize climate action that is already achieving real results in four categories:

  • Planetary Health: recognizing novel solutions that balance the need for both human health and a healthy planet.
  • Climate Neutral Now: recognizing efforts by individuals, companies and governments that are achieving real results in transitioning to climate neutrality.
  • Women for Results: recognizing the critical leadership and participation of women in addressing climate change.
  • Financing for Climate Friendly Investment: recognizing successful financial innovations for adaptation and climate mitigation.
