Ecozine as Media Partner

Ecozine was a proud Media Partner of the region’s longest reigning event for corporate social responsibility and corporate governance. The Annual Global CSR Summit & Awards and the Global Good Governance Awards 2017 is now in its ninth successive year.

Lisa Christensen, Ecozine’s Editor in Chief, Founder & CEO was one of the international speakers and moderated two panels; “Women Empowerment in a Changing Urban and Rural Context - When you empower women you empower society” and “How to Advance Employee Engagement for CSR Programmes”.

The event is recognized as the most prestigious and respected platform for recognizing excellent CSR and governance practices from companies and leading brands from the region and the rest of the world. The event also showcased presentations from influential speakers including award winning visionary thought leader Professor Martin Blake, Mr Ali Jaleel (CEO, Philips Malaysia) and Mr Chandran Nair, Founder of Global Institute for Tomorrow and author of “Consumptionomics: Asia’s Role in Reshaping Capitalism and Saving the Planet,” and Professor Ray Wills, Managing Director, Future Smart. The content was riveting from the get go, and great connections were made.

Against the backdrop of the theme, “Rebooting Capitalism –Exploring New Market Models”, the speakers presented many perspectives and case studies on Asian, Western and hybrid developmental models that sparked much debate and enthusiasm amongst delegates.

Mr Melvin Chan, Co-Global Events Director of The Global CSR Summit & Awards commented: “The Global CSR Summit & Awards has withstood the test of time and has continuously been supported by respected companies from around the world including some of the Fortune 500 companies. The event holds the highest standards by being the few awards programme around the world that do not accept sponsorships from companies that want to submit their nominations for the awards. This sets us apart from all the other competing events in this space.”

Out of 146 entries received from all over the world, a final selection of 38 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.
