Reuters Events Responsible Business Awards are the world’s leading Awards celebrating leadership in sustainable business. It’s more than acknowledging excellent sustainability strategies. The Responsible Business Awards recognise those that are truly having an impact on business, society and the environment – delivering a new blueprint for business in the 21st Century.

For the past 11 years our Awards have served as the benchmark for businesses from across the globe that are looking to showcase real leadership, against their international peers. Over the past two years we’ve seen 32 winning entrants from 18 different countries. And, whilst this year we’re unable to recognise the leaders during a prestigious in person Awards gala, we will be celebrating the leaders with our global community, through a 2-day virtual Awards ceremony.

This year’s Awards ceremony offers you an exciting opportunity to showcase your pioneering work to over 3,000 global business executives, during the 2-day broadcast as well as for another 14 days pre and post ceremony via our Awards Showcase Hub
