Oslo Business for Peace Award
Deadline: October 21, 2018
Nominations are open for the 2019 Oslo Business for Peace Award. The Award is the highest distinction given to a business leader who exemplifies outstanding businessworthy accomplishments: ethically and responsibly creating value both for business and society. Through the recognition of these individuals, the Foundation’s mission is to unlock the positive power of business to achieve peace and prosperity.
Together with its partners at the International Chamber of Commerce, Principles for Responsible Investment, United Nations Development Programme, and United Nations Global Compact, the Business for Peace Foundation is now seeking candidates for the 2019 Oslo Business for Peace Award. 2019 marks the 10th anniversary of the Award. Do you know anyone who is businessworthy? Nominate them now.
Candidates are nominated through a global, bottom-up process through the Foundation’s global partners. Then, Honourees are selected by an independent committee consisting of Nobel Laureates in peace and economics.
Previous Award recipients range from a United Kingdom product designer who has created sustainable refrigeration, to a Nigerian entrepreneur who has increased the overall returns to rice farmers through improved quality, enhanced productivity, and guaranteed crop buy-back.
- Candidates can come from a wide variety of business backgrounds and industries.
There are three evaluation criteria:
- being a role model to society and their peers;
- having earned trust by stakeholders;
- standing out as an advocate.
Nominations can be submitted online through the nomination partners’ websites. Winners of the 2019 Oslo Business for Peace Award will be announced March 20, 2019 and will be presented with the award at Oslo City Hall on May 15, 2019 in a public ceremony.
