With the partnership between Asia Pacific CSR Council and its global partner United Nations Global Compact Network Singapore, Junior Chamber International Entrepreneur Metropolitan Kuala Lumpur and Institute of Sustainability, this year, the award builds on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, which are held in high regard by the private sector in their own right.

The award represents the most prestigious form of recognition for companies globally on leadership in Corporate Responsibility and Corporate Sustainability. Its criteria are not only well-aligned to the Sustainable Development Goals but also recognises the companies achieving triple bottom line success.
