2020 GCSA seeks to recognise sustainability

Companies worldwide with an outstanding commitment to sustainable development have the opportunity to earn recognition and acclaim they deserve by entering the 2020 Global Corporate Sustainability Awards (GCSA).

20 May 2020 | By Dibyajyoti Sarma

2020 GCSA embraces the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) outlined in the UN’s 2030 agenda. In previous years, the award winners included Hewlett-Packard Enterprise (HPE) from the US, Siemens from Germany, ASUSTeK from Taiwan, GSB from Thailand, PT Vale Indonesia Tbk from Indonesia, and Janajal from India. The entries will be reviewed by a distinguished panel of international judges drawn from government, academia, and corporations.

Guided by the UN’s sustainable development outline, GCSA has four key objectives:

1 Promoting corporate sustainability principles and SDG practices

2 Recognising corporate efforts toward sustainable development.

3. Honouring companies that provide complete disclosure of economic, environmental, social, and governmental performance and clearly communicate sustainability performance and impacts through sustainability reporting

4 Encouraging individuals who contribute to positive impacts and accomplish outstanding successes in sustainability

GCSA offers awards and recognition in three major categories — outstanding professional; sustainability reporting, and best practice.

Registration opens on 11 May 2020, and submission closes on 10 August 2020. The results will be announced, and the winners notified on 4 October 2020. The award ceremony will be held on 18 November 2020 during the third Global Corporate Sustainability Forum (GCSF) in Taipei, Taiwan.

2020 GCSA is hosted by the Alliance for Sustainable Development Goals (A•SDGs), and co-organised by Taiwan Academy of Corporate Sustainability (TACS), Taiwan Institute for Sustainable Energy (TAISE), and Center for Corporate Sustainability (CCS).
