RBA Compass Awards to Recognize CSR Leadership, Innovation and Implementation
Submitted by Responsible Business Alliance
The Responsible Business Alliance (RBA) today announced the launch of its Compass Awards program and called for submissions from its members, their suppliers and factories. This awards program will recognize corporate social responsibility (CSR) excellence across three categories: Leadership, Innovation and Implementation.
The primary objective of the Compass Awards is to recognize efforts that lead to meaningful, positive change in line with the RBA's vision and mission. The award submissions will also serve as examples of successful actions that other companies can emulate.
“The Compass Awards reflect the RBA’s history of promoting effective programs and tools to improve labor and human rights, health and safety, the environment, and governance and ethics in global supply chains,” said Rob Lederer, Executive Director of the Responsible Business Alliance. “Through these awards we hope to not only recognize great achievements but encourage others to strive for the same.”
The deadline for this year's entries is August 31. Submissions will be reviewed by an independent panel of judges from outside of the RBA and finalists will be announced in the fall, before the RBA annual conference in Santa Clara, California where the winners of each category will be revealed and presented with their Compass Awards.
