Formula E is nominated in the Elite Organisation of the Year category.

A panel of independent experts in climate and environment issues from inside and outside the BBC then judged the winner of each category.
"The motorsport championship for electric cars was nominated for its continued work in driving sustainable change both inside and outside motorsport," said the panel.
"It uses targets validated by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), has involved business partners in its efforts, and uses its technology and global platform to drive the move towards a more sustainable motor industry."
The winners will be announced on the BBC Sport website on Monday, 2 October.
