The Business & Finance Awards program in association with KPMG is delighted to announce a new Business for Good partnership with UNICEF.
The partnership is an important new initiative expanding the Business & Finance Awards program with the aim of building a vitally important bridge between the business world and Business for Good through this special partnership with UNICEF and the exceptional humanitarian work of the UNICEF team.
During the two years of the Covid pandemic, UNICEF led one of the most important global initiatives working in the corporate sector to fund the UNICEF campaign “Get a Vaccine Give A Vaccine”. Its success resulted in extensive number of vaccines to be delivered around the world thanks to the inspiring program of UNICEF.
UNICEF is today at the forefront of the humanitarian response in eastern Ukraine, reaching vulnerable children and families affected by the conflict with essential services, including support for health systems, the delivery of essential vaccines and the repair of schools and water points damaged by the bombardments and access to drinking water for more than 1.7 million people. In addition, UNICEF continues its tireless work in 190 countries to help children most in need, including Afghanistan, Yemen, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia & Syria.
Chairman and Editor of Business & Finance, Ian Hyland, noted:
“Alongside our partners KPMG, I am delighted to announce this very special Business for Good partnership with UNICEF and the Business & Finance Awards Programme. UNICEF has been adamant in its incredible work and support for children in the toughest environments across 190 countries. The announcement of this special partnership with UNICEF comes at a most critical time. I look forward to working with Peter Power and his incredible team to engage with the Irish and international business community.”
He added, quoting Theodore Roosevelt, ‘At any point in the decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is do nothing.
Stone Power, The Executive Director of UNICEF Ireland, said: “We are delighted to work with Business and Finance. There is now an increased awareness of the need for holistic ESG strategies across businesses and UNICEF is an ideal partner for Irish businesses. We look forward to working with the business and finance team to demonstrate how UNICEF can be an ideal.”business for good” partner.”
Over five decades, the Business & Finance Awards program has significantly expanded its reach in promoting excellence in business leaders and management teams and today’s announcement of our partnership with UNICEF will promote the deep values carried by companies, large and small.
We look forward to welcoming UNICEF in the Business & Finance Awards program as a partner. Please click here to join us at the gala on April 12, 2022 at the Convention Center Dublin.
