The 2013 Oslo Business for Peace Honourees
The Oslo Business for Peace Award is the highest form of recognition given to individual business leaders for fostering peace and stability through creating shared value between business and society. The world wide search for the 2013 Honourees was a joint effort by ICC, UNDP and the Oslo based Business for Peace Foundation. The five Honourees, selected by an independent committee consisting of Nobel Prize winners in Peace and in Economics, were announced simultaneously in Oslo, and during a Plenary Session of the 8th World Chambers Congress in Doha. Finally, the Award was presented to the Honourees at the Business for Peace Summit in Oslo City Hall (May 14 2013).
The 2013 Honourees come from Brasil, Denmark, Pakistan, USA and Yemen.
