The FT/IFC Transformational Business Awards & Conference is a global program which highlights groundbreaking, long-term private sector solutions to key development issues. This year, special attention is being given to products and services that harness disruptive technologies and business models to achieve their goals.
Crucial issues around land – ownership rights, governance and management – will also be highlighted, along with the continuing challenges around climate change, and the need to address poverty in all its forms.
The awards will also continue to underline innovative and financially viable solutions that help meet key UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This year’s Achievement in Sustainable Development Awards include a prize for food and water security, with an additional emphasis on land governance.
The Transformational Business Awards are open to all financial and non-financial private sector organisations.
A special Achievement in City-led Transformation category, supported by Cities Alliance, will also underline achievements by municipal governments around the world. The 2016 awards attracted 155 entries from 219 organisations, involving projects in 92 countries.
