The mission of Business for Peace is to support, inspire and recognise the global business leaders who are positively changing the face of business. At the centre of the Foundation’s efforts is the annual Oslo Business for Peace Award. Each year, recipients are selected by an independent committee of Nobel Prize Laureates in Peace and Economics in closed-door sessions. The Award is conferred annually to the exceptional individuals who exemplify the Foundation’s concept of being businessworthy: ethically creating economic value that also creates value for society. Past honourees represent leaders of diverse industries worldwide.
Winners of the 2020 Oslo Business for Peace Award will be announced in spring 2020 and will be celebrated in a public ceremony in Oslo City Hall on May 14, 2020. We welcome you to read more about our Award Criteria, the Business for Peace Award Committee, and the remarkable leaders who are previous recipients of the Business for Peace Award.
