CEOs to Address Brands Taking Stands movement during 3BL Forum
Submitted by 3BL Forum
Corporate Responsibility Magazine has announced the finalists for its annual excellence in leadership awards. The awards are given to corporate leaders committed to a progressive environmental, social, and governance (ESG) agenda, and to those who are taking bold steps to move the needle on the urgent conversations of the day.
The awards will be presented at 3BL Forum, the leading event for corporate responsibility and sustainability practitioners, Oct. 23–25 at MGM National Harbor, just minutes from the nation’s capital.
Finalists for the 2018 Responsible CEO of the Year and Lifetime Achievement Awards are:
Daniel Amos, chairman and CEO at Aflac
Tim Ryan, U.S. Chairman and Senior Partner at PwC
Steve Rendle, president and CEO at VF Corporation
John Snyder, president and CEO at BCD Travel
Mariano Lozano, chairman and CEO at Danone North America
“Delivering strong business results is just the starting point for these CEOs, who have built purpose into their organizations’ mission and culture,” said Dave Armon, publisher of CR Magazine. "This year's 3BL Forum will focus on Brands Taking Stands. Companies that commit to socially responsible and sustainable business practices take a stand every day. These accomplished leaders demonstrate their personal commitment to corporate responsibility, sustainability and impact."
The Responsible CEO of the Year awards are presented to CEOs – from public and private companies, NGOs, and governments – who, during the previous year, put themselves at personal and professional risk in order to deliver on their corporate responsibility promises.
CR Magazine also awards a Corporate Responsibility Lifetime Achievement Award to recognize an individual whose risk-taking, vision, and pioneering spirit have led to significant achievement in the corporate responsibility field over the course of their career.
All award finalists were nominated by fellow members of the CR community and selected by an independent judging panel that includes prior honorees.
