IN PURSUIT OF sustainability excellence

As the nation celebrates the 52nd year of its glorious independence, Bangladesh can look back and reflect on its robust socio-economic development, that has made the world sit up and take notice of its endless potential. Throughout this impressive journey, there have been a number of benevolent organizations and iconic individuals who have partnered with the government, institutions and communities in their plight towards sustainable development.

Gearing up to achieve middle-income status and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) laid out by the United Nations, it is imperative to manifest a collaborative approach through meaningful partnerships between the government and organizations with exceptional sustainable initiatives, in order to unlock our true potential. Bangladesh Sustainability Excellence Awards celebrates some of the most remarkable and impactful sustainable initiatives that encapsulate the indomitable resilience of our people, striving towards a better future.

Now, more than ever, we must adapt and realign our objectives to ensure sustainable nation-building and propel the country to newer heights – in pursuit of a sustainable Bangladesh.
