IFS announces winners of Change for Good Sustainability Awards
IFS, the global cloud enterprise software company, today announced the winners of its second annual IFS Change for Good Sustainability Awards. The awards are designed to recognize sustainability excellence across IFS’s global community of customers and provide an opportunity to celebrate those who act sustainably and make a genuine difference through the work they do.
IFS launched the IFS Change for Good Sustainability Awards in July 2021, following the publication of IFS’s 5-year ESG and sustainability plans in April.

IFS sustainability ambassador Lewis Pugh further added: “For the second year in a row, IFS has shown great leadership in tackling the climate crisis. The awards highlight their commitment to supporting sustainable initiatives and their customers’ transformation journeys. The winners of this year’s awards have shown both individual and corporate responsibility for sustainability. This approach will make a real difference in the fight against the climate crisis.”
President of Digital Leaders and IFS board member Jacqueline de Rojas added: “It is a privilege to see innovation supporting the green agenda in such practical ways. The Change for Good Award winners have looked beyond the immediate and understood the needs of our technology-dependent future. It is incredibly inspiring to see how technology is moving at pace to play a much-needed part in building a sustainable future.”
Ian Gillott, managing director of WrightBus whose chairman Jo Bamford was awarded the Individual Contribution Award in 2021 commented: “Addressing the task of the day, and educating for tomorrow – is the key to the success of sustainability initiatives.
