NOMINATION CLOSES IN
For the seventh year running, the Sustainability & Social Investment Awards is recognizing the most outstanding sustainability and CSR initiatives in the Country and beyond as well as the best teams and individuals who brought them to life.
Our mission is to give our finalists and winners the recognition, learning, and networking opportunities they deserve, all in a responsible, equitable, and transparent manner.
The SSI Awards™ is a testament to the importance of placing sustainability at the forefront of organizational efforts. With this in mind, we aim to raise the bar for those who make sustainability a core goal.
The SSI Awards recognizes organizations that prioritize sustainability, fostering learning, sharing, networking, and valuable relationships – and ultimately recognizing those who deserve these accolades the most.
The awards entry process and scoring are designed with fairness and impartiality in mind, to recognize your achievements in sustainability – regardless of the size of your organization.
This year all nominees for the categories listed below will gather for a live in-person presentation. Nominees will be given the opportunity to defend why their projects should be the winning project in an in-person presentation before our panel of judges.
Categories: Project of the Year; Team of the Year; SSI Company/Foundation of the year
