Environmental Social Governance Awards 2022

Environmental Social Governance Awards 2022

MBH Corporation plc (MBH), a diversified investment holding company, launches a competitive awards initiative to showcase exceptional Environmental Social Governance (ESG) efforts by small to medium-sized Singapore businesses, also Music businesses :).

ESG focuses on the protection of the environment, social justice and long-term economic prosperity, and while it has only recently begun to gain prominence in the business world, MBH recognises that many small to medium companies in Singapore have been incredibly active in ESG for some time. The ESG Excellence Awards initiative aims to bring greater acknowledgement to the companies who have truly excelled in this field by providing opportunities to highlight their work on a much wider scale.

The ESG Excellence Awards Singapore 2022 is an opportunity for small to mid-sized companies to showcase their efforts in the ESG field and vie for the chance to win a multi-faceted prize worth S$5000. Entry to the competition is free and open to any small to medium-sized businesses that have their primary business activities and primary office or facility based in Singapore.

Companies that want to compete only need to provide a written entry that gives a description of their business and why it is different, how their company relates to ESG, how they support social responsibility and what their vision is for the future of their company, from an ESG, investment and growth perspective.

Evaluating the entries will be a judging panel of renowned leaders from various fields in business, including best-selling author, TedX Speaker and founder of global-giving and social enterprise, B1G1, Masami Sato, and the Managing Director of Bank Julius Baer, Singapore, Dr Fong Cheng Hong.

The winners of the ESG Excellence Awards Singapore 2022 will walk away with a media investment prize worth S$5,000 in social and traditional media activation that will boost awareness around their business. This includes the production of a promotional video aimed at promoting their company and the important work they are doing in the area of ESG, a media release telling their ESG story that will be written by MBH and sent to a highly targeted media distribution list, and entrepreneur consultation with top leaders in MBH, including CEO of the MBH Corporation, Callum Laing. The winners will also be given the opportunity to be one of the judges in the next ESG Excellence Awards, set to take place in 2023.

Entries for the competition are currently open and will close by 25th April 2022. The judging panel will be evaluating the entries over a period of two weeks, from 25th April - 6th May 2022 and the winners will be announced on 9th May 2022.

Callum Laing, CEO of MBH Corporation plc, added: "Whether it is called ESG, CSR or Social Entrepreneurship, most small businesses – certainly the ones that MBH partners with – have been doing this in one form or another for decades. Now it's time for us to help shine a light on those in Singapore doing this so well."
