Leadership in Sustainability
The MCI Sustainability Awards celebrate our talents’ commitment to sustainable business and reward offices that effectively raise awareness and implement sustainability into the day-to-day practices of MCI and our clients. MCI donates € 500 to each winning office to support a local charity programme of their choice.
In 2019, we reviewed our recognition programme and have now created the four following categories:
- Sustainability Event of the Year Award for effectively integrating sustainability practices on a client event
- Sustainable Supplier of the Year Award to recognise and thank a supplier for its outstanding contributions to improve sustainability performance and implementation
- Community Engagement Award for creating the best culture of giving back to the community
- Leadership in Sustainability Award, elected based on submitted offices’ Sustainability Progress Reports.
In 2019, the judges elected the following winners:
MCI Middle-East won the Sustainability Event of the Year Award
for EDEC Congress
“Sometimes, winning is not everything, but it is also the journey to the win. And EDEC is just such a success story. For running this event for 10 years, the team has continuously evolved and innovated at every step and the last few years, the focus has been in making the event as sustainable as possible to support the environment and people around us without compromising the experience”. Ajay Bhojwani, Managing Director MCI Middle East.
MCI Middle-East used the donation to support Toys with Wings.

Also, after this crisis our goals will remain to reduce waste, enhance inclusivity in the workplace and to stay proactive and reactive in terms of vitality. At Hutten it is very clear, sustainable is what we are.” MCI The Netherlands Team added “It is a great joy to see that our local Preferred Supplier Hutten has been recognized by the whole MCI family as a true champion in sustainability.

It’s now a reality among many, evidenced by our recognition for Leadership in Sustainability, the second year in a row for winning a global sustainability award. Certainly our local Sustainability Champions, 3P, continue their important role in this leadership, especially in Talent Wellbeing and Cultural Sustainability, but in addition, we see a growing and whole-hearted involvement by the entire MCI Australia Team, intent on contributing to the world and making a difference”, proudly commented Suzanne Best, HR Director, MCI Australia.
