Elevator 2022: Advancing SME action on
sustainability progress

Now in its third year, Elevator is an accelerator competition enabling early-stage brands, organisations and cause-led businesses to pitch for services designed to help them grow in a way which advances their ambitions and delivers shared value to the world around them.

This year we’re partnering with leading sustainability platform FuturePlus for the 2022 competition, which is focused on helping SMEs advance their actions and ambitions on sustainability progress.

Elevator 2022 – Powering progress for a more sustainable future

We’ve chosen sustainability as the theme of the competition this year. Mainly because good business is good for business, but also because growing prominence of ESG criteria has put sustainability at the heart of business resilience, ethical growth and performance.

The next era of successful brands will need to connect with the expectations of today’s ethically minded audiences and clearly demonstrate sustainability progress – be it on issues such as climate, diversity & inclusion, economic value, social and community impact or governance.

But many businesses, particularly early-stage ventures, don’t have the resources or knowledge to action, advance or amplify their ambitions on sustainability

To be known for the positive impact they are, or are aspiring, to deliver.

We believe sustainable progress should be accessible to all.


Why apply?

Through FuturePlus, the winner will receive a free annual FuturePlus subscription, Sustainability Strategy Workshop and consultancy and expertise to advance its progress on sustainability.

Through Eulogy the winner will receive pro-bono marketing, communications and branding consultancy to the value of £30,000, to engage its audiences on its sustainability commitments and support its growth ambitions through wider brand building.

The perfect combination of expertise to show the world you’re a brand to believe in.
