“More and more business leaders are realizing that the new price of doing well, is doing good. Social media has created a world of radical transparency and taken CSR out from the silo and put it in the P&L statement. The most successful businesses in the future will increasingly be those that are the most socially responsible as they get huge benefit from the powerful advocacy of their consumers and employees through social media – and those businesses that aren’t will be punished. The International Green Awards™ honor the most effective, innovative and creative approaches to sustainability and the power of these much-needed ideas to drive positive change.”
