Globe Award is a world covering sustainability award which is given out in four categories to recognise and encourage societies, the corporate sector, individuals and academia that have excelled in the area of sustainability. Globe Award is a non-for-profit organisation with the aim of fostering sustainable development in society. Our role is to inspire actors to do more and to take responsibility through awarding great cases within research, innovations, large corporations and cities.

Globe Award sees the need to support research and innovation as well as motivate large corporations and cities in order to get the needed changes that will take us towards a sustainable future. Therefore the award is given in the following categories: Sustainability Research, Sustainability Innovation, Sustainable City and Sustainability Reporting.

Globe Award is an initiative by Globe Forum.

When started in 2007, Globe Award was a Swedish CSR Award. After two years of success in Sweden, Globe Forum decided to go further with Globe Award. Wanting to foster change towards sustainable development in all societies, it made sense in making the Globe Award a truly global prize focusing on sustainability, instead of CSR, starting from 2009.
