A spark of innovation and promotion of values aligned with the sustainable development goals run hand in hand with the SDG Business Pioneers Award in BIH. In addition to providing spotlight to companies that provide decent jobs and reduce their impact in the environment in BIH, the Award made an effort to “walk the talk”. To illustrate the statement, the presenters of the Award are carefully selected every year.
In 2019, the presenters of the Award were young (15-18 years old) Olympic medallists, winners of international maths competitions, promising athlets and alike. In 2020, the presenters were young innovators and winners of the hackathons to alleviate covid impact. In 2021, the presenters were the winners of the Award in 2020.
The presenters in the 2022 edition of the SDG Business Pioneers Award in BIH will be strong, powerful women, many of them hailing from business world themselves. It is our great honor and privilege to present these women.
