Feedback From The Judges


“There have been some fantastic entries demonstrating real impact – some of the entries offer accessible and easy to use solutions for consumers that have secured remarkable results, whilst others offer a glimpse into a tech future leveraging AI or other emerging technologies to bring about positive change.

James Lynn, Co-Founder at Currensea


“Wonderful to absorb the strength and diversity of mission of the entry list – a mind boggling collection of people and businesses attempting to improve our lives on a micro and macro level, in different ways, and at different stages but all very much united in pursuing sustainability in it’s truest sense” 

Jason Ash, Founder at Young Planet


“The beauty of the Sustainability60 competition is that it is, by nature, incredibly broad. We were determined to ensure only companies making real change in the space were included and were blown away by the number of entries and calibre of companies. Congratulations to all the winners, highly deserved!”

Jason Ash, Founder at Young Planet

Jason Ash is the co-founder of YoungPlanet, a circular economy app where families can give and receive parenting and children’s items for free. The company enables parents to put no-longer-used children’s things to good use with new families and away from landfill, for free. With an estimated 80% of children’s toys going to landfill, Jason has been pioneering a waste-free attitude within the space.

James Lynn, Co-Founder at Currensea

James spent two decades in foreign exchange of the world’s largest banks, such as Barclays and Credit Agricole. Originally launched as a B2C proposition before expanding the offering in 2021, Currensea offers users savings of 85%-100% on overseas spending by removing the normal foreign exchange fees leveraged by banks and other card providers.

In addition to saving money on FX fees, Currensea users can opt to donate some or all of their these savings on sustainability initiatives – these donations have planted over 100,000 trees and removed over 3m plastic bottles from the ocean.
