In order to give recognition to some of the best practices, the Global Sustainability (CSR) Practitioner Challenge included the work of over 100 Certified CSR Executives from a diverse range of industries and backgrounds which took part in the 2013 Challenge. Consequently, each applicant presented a CSR initiative in which they had initiated and/or participated within their organization. The submissions were evaluated against specific objective criteria with 1 winner selected from 3 regions (Europe, Middle East, and North America) and in turn recognized as Awarded Sustainability (CSR) Practitioners.
