The Ceylon Chamber of Commerce is organizing a seminar in a bid to kick start the “Best Corporate Citizen Sustainability Award 2015”.

The Ceylon Chamber introduced this competition 12 years back with the intent of encouraging the corporate sector to adopt best sustainability practices. It focuses on all stakeholders of the company ranging from employees, customers, community, shareholders, government and to the environment. 

Integrating sustainability practices by corporates is a win-win as it creates value for the company through better use of resources and in the process helps to preserve the planet; making it a better place to live.

The seminar will be held at the Ground floor auditorium of the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce on 3rd August.

The briefing will be conducted by the expert panel of evaluators and it is intended to guide the corporates on the process of applying for the awards and the expectations of the evaluators.

The target audience for this event would be corporate responsibility managers /CSR managers and the staff engaged in preparation of application for the BCCS awards.

The Chamber has lined up a galaxy of awards to recognize the best performers in corporate sustainability initiatives in Sri Lanka, ranging from the Best Corporate Citizen Sustainability Award 2015, Top ten corporates, Category awards, sector awards to top performers for key sectors of the economy and The Best Presented Application.

In addition to the main award, the “Best Projects Sustainability Awards 2015”, will recognize exemplary projects carried out by companies relating to Planet and People such as Education, Community services etc.

The Chamber invites corporates to nominate their staff to take part in this seminar and apply for the awards.
