SAP Canada Inc., in partnership with the Richard Ivey School of Business at The University of Western Ontario, has created the Sustainability in Business Award. The award is designed to recognize sustainability initiatives undertaken by Canadian organizations. The Richard Ivey School of Business, which will independently adjudicate the award submissions, will announce the inaugural winner on June 8, 2010 at SAP’s Sustainability in Business Summit in Toronto, Ontario.
Sustainability initiatives include social responsibility, environmental, and employee programs that drive cost-savings as well as positive changes for the long-term good of all stakeholders. Canadian organizations are driving sustainability in many areas, such as: energy and emissions reduction, supply chain optimization, workforce diversity and product stewardship.
The SAP Sustainability in Business Summit will be held at the Allstream Centre — Canada’s Greenest Conference Centre – and will feature expert speakers and executive planning sessions based on sustainability. The event will take place on June 8th, 2010, highlighted by the presentation of the Sustainability in Business Award and by the engagement of experts and advocates in the field of responsible and sustainable business.
