shake-website

Last week, the Business for Peace Foundation Award Committee gathered in a closed door meeting at the Norwegian Embassy in London to deliberate on the 2015 Business for Peace Award winners: exceptional individuals who exemplify the concept of  what the Foundation calls being businessworthy,  by ethically creating economic value that also creates value for society.  A committee of Nobel Prize winners in Peace and Economics deliberated over some 80 applications submitted for nomination, originating from 40 countries. Winners will be announced in the coming weeks, and celebrated in a public ceremony in Oslo on May 6.
