The 2014 Peer Awards for Excellence in Corporate Responsibility Conference

CSRwire - 12 min 20 sec ago

The Peer Awards provide exposure and recognition for innovative CSR initiatives. All finalists present their entries at the conference, which means they also hear one another's entries and have a chance to inspire one another.

The judging process is entirely transparent because the winners are determined by the votes of everyone at the conference, and not in secret by the usual "panel of experts." All finalists appear in the Independent newspaper.

We are open for additional entries until just before the conference.
