The inaugural Climate Journalism Award, launched in 2023. Its primary aim is to acknowledge outstanding climate journalism that adopts an innovative or original storytelling approach. Additionally, the Award intends to foster a network of journalists reporting on climate-related topics, promoting discussion and knowledge-sharing with the EJC and partners of the Award.

- Winning an award for innovative climate journalism can inspire other journalists to also use new approaches, storytelling techniques, and media formats to communicate climate change to a broader audience.
- The Award will bring together a community of journalists who report on climate change, facilitating collaboration and knowledge-sharing.
- Exceptional climate journalism recognised by one of the awards can draw public attention to climate change, raise awareness, and promote public engagement.
