Alcan Prize For Sustainability


: International


In 2003, Alcan Inc., a leader in metals mining, adopted sustainability as the key focus for its community investment program supporting initiatives and projects that align with the Company’s commitment to environmental, social, and economic sustainability. The $1 million prize recognizes and rewards the role of nonprofits and civil society organizations committed to making a sustainable difference. Nine short-listed organizations receive $15,000 with the specific intention of investing in certifiable training and capacity building for the organization. Entries must describe and demonstrate impact on at least two dimensions of sustainability – economic, environmental, and/or social development. Preference is given to organizations that successfully advance all three sustainable goals. Entries can be submitted in English, French, Spanish, Russian, Arabic, or Chinese. Organizations must be incorporated for at least five years in order to be eligible to apply. Additional information including an online application is available on the Web site
