GDA logo trial 10 ESG.png

ESG stands for Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance. The theme in ESG that companies and also investors are seeking to include a wider sense of responsibility in their operations. This includes the environment, sustainability, carbon reduction and also many social factors such as equality, opportunity and lack of discrimination in addition to safe working practices.

In some countries ESG is also known by the abbreviation CSR - Corporate Social Responsibility.

ESG and CSR are often difficult to quantify as each company often has different parameters to operate under. Nevertheless many investors are seeking out companies with higher awareness of ESG and CSR and so the award recognition in this field through the GDA Award system is an important signal to show. This applies to small companies and start-ups who want to get on the right way to begin with, as well as established companies.

In this award we are looking for actual actions taken rather than just good intentions at board level. See the specific application form for this special category.

See also the application menu for more detailed information as well as the Q&A section.

The deadline for the ESG ACTION AWARD is the 20th of September 2023 at 20.00 UTC - Coordinated Universal Time
