Partnership for Sustainability Award

Partnership for Sustainability Award is an annual international campaign, within which the UN Global Compact Ukraine awards the best projects implemented through partnerships between businesses, government, and civil society to achieve Sustainable Development Goals and support Ukraine during the war.

The competition was founded in 2018 with the aim of uniting stakeholders around the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. The award takes place annually, with the exception of 2022 — the year of the beginning of Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine. Today, we realize the value of partnership more than ever before. In the face of Russian aggression, Ukraine has united, just as the entire world has come together to help us withstand.

Today, we are awarding projects from participants from Ukraine and European countries aimed at supporting Ukraine during the full-scale invasion, as well as other best practices of sustainable development that can serve as examples for future recovery.

Partnership for Sustainability Award is international campaign . In past years, it has involved around 400 representatives from Ukraine, Great Britain, France, Germany, Switzerland, Sweden, Finland, Croatia, Poland, Georgia, Romania, Bulgaria, and Turkey.
