The Contest comprises:
Six Thematic Categories covering all main areas of CSR. These are:
- Green Initiative
- Responsible Employer
- Responsibility in the Marketplace
- Supporting communities
- Cross-Sector Partnership
- Transparency and Reporting on CSR and corporate sustainability
Most of the categories encompass several specific themes. Applicants are requested to submit an entry(s) for particular category (e.g. Green Initiatives; Supporting Communities etc.) and tick specific theme (e.g. Resource management or Promoting community education etc.), to which their entry relates.
The award is conferred per category, not per theme. Indication of the relevant theme is obligatory for the evaluation reasons. It helps judges to understand how company positions its nomination within CSR landscape and what was the specific purpose of the nominated program, project or initiative.
