ALEXANDRIA, June 18, 2019 -- The Responsible Business Alliance (RBA) today announced the opening of its 2019 Compass Awards program and called for submissions from member companies, their suppliers and factories. This awards program recognizes corporate social responsibility (CSR) excellence across three categories: Leadership, Innovation and Implementation.
Now in its second year, 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 highlight the great work many companies are undertaking to improve conditions in their global supply chains,” said Rob Lederer, Executive Director of the Responsible Business Alliance. “We hope others will be inspired by our members’ actions and implement similar programs that can have positive impacts on workers and their communities.”
The deadline for this year's entries is August 9. 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 winner of each category will be revealed and presented with their Compass Award.
For more information on the awards, including FAQs and the application form, visit the Compass Awards page on the RBA website and contact firstname.lastname@example.org. View case studies from the Compass Awards winners and finalists in 2018 here.
