CCA Award Nomination Information
Corporate Citizen of the Americas Award
The Trust for the Americas and the Organization of American States (OAS) are currently receiving applications for participation in the selection of the best corporate citizen of the Americas for 2012. The Corporate Citizen of the Americas Award 2012, will be awarded during the Trust’s 15th Anniversary Gala, “Because You Care, We Can”, to be held on Fall 2013, in Washington, D.C.
The private sector plays an increasingly important role in developing solutions to overcome poverty in communities throughout Latin America and the Caribbean. The Corporate Citizen of the Americas Award (CCA) promotes these efforts by formally recognizing a company that has initiated an innovative program which benefits the community in which it operates and can serve as a model for socially responsible practices.
