About the Awards


What are the Awards?

Now in its third edition, the Gulf Sustainability and CSR Awards are set to be bigger and better than ever.

The Gulf Sustainability and CSR Awards provide recognition for companies and individuals implementing outstanding Sustainability and CSR initiatives across the region. The awards finals and ceremony take place on one day, on 19th February 2019 in Dubai.

Phenomenal Value

During the finals on 19th February up to 100 finalists’ presentations will be scored by the judges in what will be a large gathering of Sustainability and CSR best practice in one place. Each of the judging rooms is set out for spectators and many of the presenters will open their sessions to others to watch and learn. If you are attending the awards ceremony it means you can also attend the finals and watch the presentations in the daytime. No other conference or event offers anywhere near this kind of value for money.

FINALISTS ANNOUNCED: 05th December 2018

Can SMEs Win Against Big Business?

At Awards International we pride ourselves on our reputation for having the fairest process for deciding business awards winners. Our awards programmes are judged by a large panel of independent and impartial business professionals, who are passionate about their role and meet our stringent criteria. Our scoring criteria is endorsed by Cranfield School of Management, and all finalists present their entry live to the judges on the day of the finals. This means that every entrant whether an individual, SME, or large organisation has the same chance of impressing the judges and taking home the top spot on the day.
