Will your company win?
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is accepting nominations for its 2012 Corporate Citizenship Awards, with a submission deadline of May 31. The Chamber gives awards in 4 categories:
- Best Business Neighbor: U.S.-focused social, community and/or environmental initiatives;
- Best International Ambassador: social, community, and/or environmental initiative that takes place within one or more developing nations;
- Best Partnership: a business-nonprofit collaboration whose goal is to achieve high impact and sustainable results on a single social, community, or environmental issue; and
- Best Corporate Steward: responsive and responsible members of society, whose overall values, operational practices, and stakeholder strategies exemplify shared value.
The Chamber described the award program in a recent Huffington Post blog, A Movement to Reward Social Problem Solvers. The Business Civic Leadership Center – the Chamber’s resource and voice for businesses’ social and philanthropic interests – will announce the winners in December. I wonder if any OGF members will be among the finalists and winners?
