For a Sustainable Future Award

‘For a Sustainable Future’ Award 2020

To recognize the outstanding corporate and leadership performances contributing to the SDG’s and mitigating the effects of the pandemic

BCSDH announces the “For a sustainable future” Award this year, with a temporary new category, as in such a difficult situation, recognition is especially needed. Our purpose is to recognize the extraordinary achievements of leaders and companies on advancing Sustainable Development Goals (SDG-s), and this time the outstanding actions of the pandemic were also integrated.

We would like to inspire companies and their leaders to integrate sustainability factors into their business decisions, and to create solutions which go beyond business as usual and which can be rolled out to other business operators so we can make a real impact. The current situation has highlighted the importance of sustainable operations to make companies resilient.

The pandemic created unprecedented challenges to any company, making flexibility one of the keys to survival. We have witnessed rapid, credible and exemplary actions by business leaders, innovative measures to protect jobs, employee and supply chains, creative new business models, real social responsibility programs in response to the pandemic, and measures to restart the economy, all of which are commendable. We would like to reward these also with this award this year and make them known to a wider audience.
