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 2018, we reviewed our recognition programme and have now created the three following categories:.
- Sustainability Event of the Year Award for effectively integrating sustainability practices on a client event
- 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 2018, the judges elected the following winners:
