Collective Action Awards 2024 - voting open

Public voting has opened for this year’s prestigious Collective Action Awards.

Launched in 2022, the Collective Action Awards celebrate inspiring and outstanding multi-stakeholder initiatives to raise standards of business integrity in a particular context. Two award categories are available: “Outstanding Achievement” and “Inspirational Newcomer”.

Following the public vote, this year's awards will be presented at the 5th International Collective Action Conference in Basel, Switzerland, on 24–25 June 2024.

The Conference and Awards are organised with the support of the Siemens Integrity Initiative.

Congratulations to our three finalists in this category:
