The 13th Annual Global CSR Summit & Awards™ Goes Virtual. 50 Top Corporations Given Top Honours For The Global CSR Summit & Awards™ And The Global Good Governance Awards™


16th November 2021

For Immediate Release

The world’s leading thought Leadership event on CSR– The Global CSR Summit & Awards ™ and The Good Governance Awards ™ was conducted on 16 November 2021 via a 3D interactive virtual platform.

The event now at its 13th year, consists of a full day conference with speeches and presentations by 15 renowned speakers. The guest of honour was Mr Ly Vu Minh, Deputy Director of the Communication Center for Environmental Resources Communication – Vietnam’s Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (MONRE).

Mr Ly Vu Minh shared that Vietnam was concerned about plastic pollution and was currently a responsible member of the United Nations, committing strong action to reduce plastic waste, striving to bring Vietnam become a pioneer in reducing ocean plastic waste. In 2017, Vietnam officially joined the list of 127 countries that passed the United Nations Environment Council Resolution on plastic waste and ocean microplastics. At the 6th session of the General Assembly of the Global Environment Fund (GEF6) in June 2018 in Da Nang, Vietnam proposed the initiative “Establishing a regional partnership in the East Asian seas on waste management and ocean plastic waste”. In 2019, the Prime Minister presided over the launching ceremony of the nationwide movement against plastic waste that by 2021, shops, markets and supermarkets in urban areas will not use single-use plastic and by 2025 the entire country to be single use plastic free.

The event kickstarted with a keynote address by Dr Richard Hames, the Founder and Executive Director of the Centre for the Future and Fellow of World Academy of Art & Science. Widely regarded as a renowned futurist, Dr Hames foretold that the pandemic will affect societies for the next 5-10 years in the terms of behaviours and its impact on trust in governments and corporations. Dr Hames commented, “With the balance of
power and trust shifting from the West to the East, Asia will become the world’s ESG innovation laboratory for solutions to address the challenges in the environmental space.”

With increasing awareness of Women’s issues brought about by the #MeToo movement, Ms Carol Mortensen, Executive Director of Hagar International, an international NGO dedicated to the recovery of women and children who have endured extreme abuses, she highlighted that women had played an important role during the pandemic with 70% of first respondents occupied by women. However, violence against women and girls remained a global issue. Poverty amongst women remained a problem with 70% of the statistics of modern slavery consisting of women. Ms Mortensen rallied the conference for businesses and NGOs to form meaningful partnerships to design programmes to improve the lives of women and children.

The event ended with awards component – The 13th Global CSR Awards ™ and The Good Governance Awards ™. Over 350 submissions were received this year and through a vigorous screening and evaluation process, 50 companies were shortlisted for the top awards. This year, slightly over 350 entries were received from over 100 companies all over the world and a final selection of 50 companies was awarded top honors in the 16 main award categories namely: Best Country Award, Best Community Programme, Best Environmental Excellence, Excellence in Provision of Literacy & Education, Empowerment of Women, Best Workplace Practices, Product Excellence, CSR Leadership, Best CEO, Best Corporate Communications & IR and Best Governed & Most Transparent Company.
