Education Improvement

This award recognizes the contribution of companies through their contribution toward improving the level of education of their employees, their community and their nation. It recognizes how well the company backs up its belief and commitment to education and how sustainable the project or program is.

Special Awards

The Lifetime Achievement Award has run for many years and is now incorporated into and superseded by a Special Award for an organization composed primarily of businesses that are socially oriented and have implemented plans and projects to alleviate poverty, improve the environment, and other CSR practices. In the past few years, awardees included Singapore Compact for CSR, Business Ethics Institute of Malaysia and Indonesia Business Links.

The Lifetime Achievement Awardee is still open on a case to case basis. Both the Special Award and the Lifetime Achievement Award are not competitive. There is no application process. Conference Partners may nominate a person or a company. Both awards differ from the Asian CSR awards, which are structured with a board of judges, and a formal search and selection process.
