Alcan Calls For Sustainability Entries
30 January 2006 at 12:01 pm

Alcan, the aluminum and packaging giant along with the International Business Leaders Forum (IBLF) are calling for entries for the 2006 $US1million Alcan Prize for Sustainability.

The closing date for entries is midnight March 31, 2006 (GMT).

Now in its third year, the Alcan Prize for Sustainability is recognized as an important catalyst in bringing together the business and NGO community to address social, economic, and environmental issues and how they relate to sustainability.

Travis Engen, President and Chief Executive Officer of Alcan Inc.says the prize has already made a significant contribution to the work of the previous two winners, and I urge the NGO community to take advantage of this opportunity to promote sustainability around the world.

The Alcan Prize is open to all Not for Profit, non-governmental, and civil society organisations, based anywhere in the world that are working to progress and advance the goals of economic, environmental, and social sustainability.

The Alcan Prize was created to recognize the Not for Profit sector for its contributions to global sustainability, and to underline the belief that all sectors of society must work together to achieve sustainable development.

To ensure the objectivity of the Alcan Prize, Alcan partnered with the Prince of Wales International Business Leaders Forum (IBLF), which manages the application and selection process. IBLF promotes international leadership in responsible business to benefit business and society. Alcan does not have a voice on the assessment or adjudication panels.

Last year’s Alcan Prize winner was the Aga Khan Planning and Building Services Pakistan (AKPBSP). In addition, the Adjudication Panel named five other NGOs as recipients of grants worth $US15,000 each, which allow a suitably qualified senior member of staff to participate in the one-year, part-time Postgraduate Certificate in Cross Sector Partnership accredited by the University of Cambridge.

Information on eligibility criteria and entry procedures for the 2006 Alcan Prize is available at http://www.alcanprizeforsustainability.com

Alcan employs approximately 70,000 people and has operating facilities in 55 countries and regions.
