omnevue partners City A.M

In a world awash with greenwashing and confusion, City A.M wanted to use the recent Impact ESG awards to honour authentic changemakers in the industry. The awards was a celebration of the remarkable strides in the environmental, social, and governance (ESG) landscape and  recognised those forging a path to a sustainable future.  

We are thrilled that Omnevue was awarded the ESG startup of 2023.

As winner of ESG Startup of the year, Omnevue was recognised as the ‘startup that is at the vanguard of ESG ideals’ and celebrates the organisation as a ‘fresh face in business that radiates ESG excellence’.

Amongst other factors, the judging panel assessed Omnevue’s tangible impact on both environmental and social fronts, and the entity’s dedication to ethical and transparent governance.

It’s fantastic that Omnevue’s innovative ESG data reporting platform and commitment to reporting financial-grade, auditable ESG & CO2e data (data that everyone can trust!) is being recognised.
