Ethical Corporation’s 2019 Responsible Business Awards
Maersk, Kimberly-Clark, BT, Hannon Armstrong, Intel and Firmenich among winners at the internationally renowned Ethical Corporation Responsible Business Awards.
In early October 2019, over 300 leading figures in global responsible business gathered at Ethical Corporation’s 10th Annual Responsible Business Awards ceremony held in London.
A great variety of different sectors and industries from all over the world were represented. The diversity on display – both in terms of geographical origin and working sphere – demonstrated how delivering a clean, more responsible business future is becoming an international mainstream effort – and opportunity.
(Pictured above) Krina Amin, Head of Strategy at Ethical Corporation, said in her welcome speech: “2019 marks the 10th year anniversary for the awards. The level of ambition and impact demonstrated by the Responsible Business Awards never ceases to amaze me, particularly in the new categories on SDG impact and business transformation. All this year’s shortlisted companies are delivering impressive and innovative impacts within their fields. To stand out from hundreds of entries is no mean feat.”
“The Responsible Business Awards are the only recognized global awards celebrating the leading strategies from across the globe. Seeing their ambition and impact gives hope that we can meet the challenges and goals that lie ahead. At Ethical Corporation we will look to shine the light on these leading strategies across our events and publishing activities” said Krina.
The chair of the judging committee Christine Diamente, head of brand at Nokia, said: “This year’s Responsible Business Awards judging has been yet another lively session with some new fellow judges joining the cast to choose the very best examples of Responsible Business across all categories. With an impressive amount of submissions, particularly on sustainable innovation, we are very excited by how responsible business is now “successful business” around the globe in terms of impact and scale. Congratulations to our winners and to the nominees. And I would like to extend my sincerest thanks to our judges too for their dedication and commitment to this year’s Responsible Business Awards.”
