Each May, Business for Peace hosts its annual Summit, including the Business for Peace Award Ceremony as the pinnacle event. It is a chance to celebrate our Honourees and learn about their businessworthy journeys. However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the 2021 Summit had to be postponed. Instead, the Foundation hosted a digital event series in the spring, titled Business for Peace Spotlight Series: Rethinking Systems of Decent Work.
Our programme included opening remarks from Governing Mayor of Oslo, Raymond Johansen; an interview with Nobel prize-winner Joseph Stiglitz on Stakeholder Capitalism; an interview with Sanda Ojiambo, Executive Director at the United Nations Global Compact, on how governments and businesses can “build back better” together; a Youth Workshop; a ReThinking Systems of Decent Work panel including Guy Ryder, Director General of the International Labour Organisation, and much more.
Nominations for the 2022 Oslo Business for Peace Award has now closed. Submission of candidates have been done through the Foundation’s global partners: International Chamber of Commerce, United Nations Development Programme, United Nations Global Compact and Principles for Responsible Investment.
Stay tuned for details on next year’s Summit and the announcement of the 2022 Oslo Business for Peace Award winner.
