The mission of Business for Peace is to support, inspire, and recognize the global business leaders who are positively changing the face of business. At the center of the Foundation’s efforts is the annual Business for Peace Award. Each year, recipients are selected by an independent committee of Nobel Prize winners in Peace and Economics in closed door meetings, and the Award is conferred annually to the exceptional individuals who exemplify the Foundation’s concept of being businessworthy: ethically creating economic value that also creates value for society.
Past honourees have hailed from The Americas, Asia, Africa, and beyond, and represent leaders of industries as diverse as the head of a multinational baking enterprise in Mexico to the CFO of the world’s largest hydropower station in Brazil.
Winners of the 2016 Business for Peace Award were announced in March and were celebrated in a public ceremony in Oslo on May 3rd. We welcome you to read more about our selection criteria, the Business for Peace Award committee, and the remarkable leaders who are previous recipients of the Business for Peace Award.
