Business for Social Good Outstanding Award Evening

Date: 2017.11.07
Time: 5:30pm – 7:30pm
Venue: Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre

Addressing society’s needs and driving commercial success do not need to be in conflict with each other. An increasing number of companies are making successful attempts in approaching social and environmental issues as business opportunities – driving profits and productivity for the company while simultaneously advancing the social and environmental conditions in the communities in which it operates. Businesses have the opportunities to lead social progress in ways unmatched by even the government and non-profit organisations. Ultimately, this adds to the respect and trust that businesses have in the society.

The Business for Social Good Outstanding Award, the first alike award in Hong Kong, aims to identify local businesses who demonstrate leadership in creating social and environmental benefits through profit-making businesses. The Award is organised by Our Hong Kong Foundation, under the leadership of the Foundation’s Business for Social Good platform, and with the support of its strategic partners including Hong Kong Council of Social Service, McKinsey & Company and GLG.

Through this award programme, the Foundation aspires to advocate businesses to look for new ways of meeting market needs, connecting commercial success with social progress. The award aims to serve as an inspiration for businesses and the wider community to learn more about the notion of creating shared value, using business force to build a sustainable society for all.

Winners of the inaugural Business for Social Good Outstanding Award will be revealed at the award evening. The award winners will also share with the audience their business strategies and operational models.
