AWARDS & CSR
World Class Nominees & CSR Opportunities
You are invited to join us at the cutting edge of social and corporate development: water and food for all
Our vision is a world where social and corporate forces combine to create a world where everyone is well fed. A world where corporations are doing well by doing good. And it is happening. Every year the Humanitarian Water & Food Award searches for the most innovative and sustainable initiatives for water and food security. Every year the Award gains more experience in and insight into what is happening around the world and where determination, entrepreneurship, love and compassion are changing the world for the better.
The Award: celebrating social achievement
To call what the Award is offering a business opportunity is an understatement. It is offering individuals and corporations the opportunity to be part of a world where social responsibility brings food and water security to create the foundation for shared prosperity and shared economic development – and peace.
Now in its 4th year, with its second award program well underway, the Award organisation has gathered wide experience around burning CSR questions like
- Where is the business case for corporations to support water and food security?
- How do water and food security activities fit into business strategy?
- What are the main elements of sustainable solutions to food security?
- What technology is badly needed and where are the markets?
- Where and how can business get involved in being part of the solution?
Danish entrepreneurship: business innovation with compassion
The Award’s some 100 initiatives applying over the last few years all represent opportunities for corporations to engage their customers, suppliers, employees and other stakeholders in supporting these remarkable stories of success, to put real results with real people and the heart of their social responsibility programs and to participate in building wealth and prosperity in new ways in new places for themselves and the communities their customers live in.
You are invited
