2022 Terra Carta Seal
19 companies awarded the Terra Carta Seal in recognition of their commitment to creating a sustainable future
The Terra Carta Seal recognises global companies which are driving innovation and demonstrating their commitment to, and momentum towards, the creation of genuinely sustainable markets.
Designed by Sir Jony Ive, the Terra Carta Seal embodies the vision and ambition of His Majesty King Charles III and the Terra Carta, as a recovery plan for Nature, People and Planet.
The Terra Carta Seal is underpinned by Corporate Knights’ Annual Global 100 Top Sustainable Corporations List and the wider principles of the Terra Carta.
Nineteen companies have been awarded the Sustainable Market Initiative’s Terra Carta Seal.
The Terra Carta Seal, launched at COP26 by His Majesty King Charles III when he was Prince of Wales, recognises global companies which are driving innovation and demonstrating their commitment to, and momentum towards, the creation of genuinely sustainable markets. It is being awarded to companies whose ambitions are aligned with those of the Terra Carta, a recovery plan for Nature, People and Planet.
Brian Moynihan, Co-Chair, Sustainable Markets Initiative said: “The SMI brings CEOs together to work on the shared goals of accelerating our transition to a sustainable future. I congratulate those organizations recognized with the 2022 Terra Carta Seal and thank them for their commitment to sustainable markets.”
The Terra Carta Seal acknowledges that each industry faces unique challenges in its transition to a sustainable future and they are all at different stages of their journey. And all industries and companies must be supported as they take steps in a more positive direction. At the same time, an accelerated pace is required if we are to achieve a 1.5-degree target, protect and restore biodiversity and benefit the lives and livelihoods of current and future generations.

“We are honoured to work with the Sustainable Markets Initiative to provide counsel on Terra Carta Seal applicants,” Corporate Knights CEO, Toby Heaps said, adding: “The bar for sustainability leadership is rising fast and the Terra Carta Seal recipients are setting the pace.”
Sir Jony Ive and his creative team at LoveFrom created a physical and animated seal engineered with paper that is both simple and beautifully crafted. The design combines a host of natural references including oak leaves, fern, magnolia and honeybees and intricate patterns both in nature and in the arts, creating a visual celebration which reflects the power of and reverence for nature that is at the heart of the Terra Carta.
