Entries open for annual CSR Awards

31 March 2014, 13:21

Lagos - Organisers have begun receiving entries for arguably the country's biggest and most credible corporate awards.

Submissions of entries for the Nigeria Corporate Social Responsibility Awards (SERAs) close on May 17th, 2014, after which nation-wide verification exercise commences.

The SERAs grand finale holds on  October 18 at the MUSON Centre in Onikan Lagos.

Speaking on the 2014 programme, Ken Egbas, coordinator of the project said, "The 2013 edition proved a milestone in the annals of the awards as it saw the unveiling of the new statuette designed by R.S. Owens – The USA base company that produces the world renowned OSCARS and Golden Globe Awards statuettes."

He added, "This year, we intend to further up the ante and put together a world class spectacle that the whole country would be proud of."

Over the last eight years, the profile of the project has continued to grow attracting several local and international endorsements and partners.

Besides deepening the state of play of CSR and sustainability in Nigeria, SERAs have also become positioned as a strong tool for not only promoting and driving Nigeria’s national development agenda but also providing a platform for organizations and brands to leverage their investment in society and showcase beneficial stakeholder engagements.

The 2014 theme – Creating an Enabling Organizational Culture for Sustainability – seeks to strike a balance between the giant strides that Nigerian businesses are making in CSR and their internal process alongside their openness to public scrutiny especially as it affects social, environmental and governance issues.
