The 2020 Oslo Business for Peace Award

Content Manager • 9 October 2019

      Together with its partners at the International Chamber of Commerce, Principles for Responsible Investment, United Nations Development Programme, and United Nations Global Compact, the Business for Peace Foundation is now seeking candidates for the 2020 Oslo Business for Peace Award. 

      The Award is the highest distinction given to a business leader who exemplifies outstanding businessworthy behaviour and accomplishments, creating value both for business and society. There are three evaluation criteria:

  • Being a role model to society and their peers;
  • Standing out as an advocate;
  • Having earned trust by stakeholders.

   Candidates are nominated through a global, bottom-up process through the Oslo-based Foundation’s global partners. Then, Honourees are selected by an independent committee consisting of Nobel Laureates in peace and economics.

      Nominations can be submitted online through the website. Winners of the 2020 Oslo Business for Peace Award will be announced in spring 2020 and Honourees will be presented with the Award in a public ceremony at Oslo City Hall on May 14, 2020. 


The deadline to nominate a candidate is November 21, 2019.
