UNDP – Call for Nominations for the 2015 Business for Peace Awards
The Award and its Criteria
The Oslo Business for Peace Award is presented annually by an Award Committee – consisting of Nobel Laureates in peace and in economic sciences – to selected businesspersons and social entrepreneurs who have proved to be businessworthy through their actions and commitments.
Being businessworthy is to apply one’s business energy ethically and responsibly; with the purpose of creating economic value that also creates value for society.
The Award Committee evaluates suggested Nominees according to three criteria. The criteria are established by the Business for Peace Foundation. These criteria are:
Being a role model to society and their peers – meaning that the Nominee is acting as a role model to the general public and the business community by showing how to achieve long term successful business by being businessworthy.
Standing out as an advocate – meaning that the Nominee is an outspoken advocate for the importance of creating shared value between business and society, including the importance of social responsibility in corporate governance.
Having earned trust by stakeholders – meaning that the Nominee has earned recognition and appreciation by stakeholders in the communities within which his or her business is developed and cultivated over time.
