What are the 2021 China Social Impact Awards?

The 2021 China Social Impact Awards, in partnership with the United Nations, is a continuation of the 2019 Awards and previous CSR Awards organised by the British Chamber of Commerce in China in 2016 & 2017.

In the spirit of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, the awards are categorised by seven key areas of social impact: Environmental Impact, Empowerment of Women, Poverty Alleviation, Equality in Education, Employee Engagement, Community & Culture and Universal Healthcare.

Two awards will be given for each area of social impact, the first for large corporations who have made strides in their respective category, and the second for small to medium sized enterprises that have pioneered positive social impact in their own unique way.

The ceremony will be attended by senior representatives of the United Nations, the Chinese government, international companies, executive committee members of the major chambers of commerce in China along with over 300 guests from all fields of business.
