Entries are now being accepted until March 15, 2016 for the third edition of the FT/IFC Transformational Business Awards, the unique global programme that highlights ground-breaking, long-term private sector solutions to key development issues.
Special attention for 2016 is being given to products and services that address major challenges around climate change, particularly in rapidly growing urban areas, with an emphasis on the capital, technology and innovation required for substantive progress.
Besides the focus on climate change, which builds on the interest generated by the Paris Climate Conference, the Awards include a revamped technology category and a new category designed to highlight issues contained in the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Each year, this Achievement in Sustainable Development category will centre on different SDGs or targets. For 2016, the focus will be on food security and health, two of the most important SDGs.
The Awards are open to all financial and non-financial private sector organisations, with an emphasis on private sector-led public-private partnerships. For the second year, a special Excellence in City-led Transformation Category, supported by Cities Alliance, will also underline achievements by municipal governments around the world.
