Do you work for, or in partnership with, a business having a positive impact on one or more of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)? Are you particularly proud of one your initiatives?
I’m proud that for the fifth year in a row, Business Fights Poverty is partnering with Unilever and Business in the Community on an award that recognises businesses that demonstrate positive impact against one or more of the SDGs.
Business has a key role to play in helping drive progress on ending poverty and protecting the planet. More and more businesses also recognise that it is in their long-term interest to invest in building safer and more sustainable business and societies. Global challenges can also be a driver of innovation and new market opportunities.
Successful entries will be able to demonstrate:
This award is open to any private sector company, firm, LLP or partnership globally. This may include social enterprises but does not include charity organisations or NGOs unless they are tied to a corporate entity in a joint application.
Please note, we recognise that due to the nature of development programmes, the impacts realised tend to be long-term and can be difficult to evidence in the early years. We recommend that applicants entering this award have at least a two-year track record of measuring the social impacts of their programme and the benefits for the applicant’s business. Programmes with a shorter track record may still apply but an inability to evidence longer term impacts may make them less competitive against other entries.
Any size business can enter and will have an equal chance of winning as scale will be taken into consideration and assessed as relevant to your business’ operational scope.
17:00 GMT on Friday 9 February 2018.
