Run by Enterprise Asia, The Asia Responsible Entrepreneurship Awards (AREA) recognises and honours Asian businesses for championing sustainable and responsible entrepreneurship in the following categories:
- Social Empowerment Award
- Investment in People Award
- Green Leadership Award
- Health Promotion Award
- SME CSR Award
- Responsible Business Leader Award
These programmes demonstrate companies’ leadership, sincerity and on-going commitment in incorporating responsible and ethical values, legal compliance, respect for people and individuals, involvement in communities and protection of the environment into the way they run their businesses.
The recognition programme is an extension of our founding pillars of Responsible Entrepreneurship and Investment in People and forms part of the Enterprise Asia triangle of Responsible Entrepreneurship; Environment, Community and People.
Since 2011, AREA has been hosted regionally, namely for the South Asia and Southeast Asia chapters awarding companies from their respective nations. In 2015 Enterprise Asia is pleased to embark on a more inclusive AREA 2015 Asia chapter, encompassing countries such as Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, South Korea, Taiwan, to India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh, to the Middle East such as UAE and Turkey. The ceremony in Macau will be a congregation of over 250 attendees, including business and government leaders, diplomatic representatives, social and community leaders as well as local and international media.
As Asia’s leading recognition programme for responsible entrepreneurship, AREA aims to inculcate a culture of ethics and universal justice in the running of businesses as part of a sustainable entrepreneurial framework.
