CSR Network Zimbabwe (CSRNZ)’s third edition of the annual Zimbabwe National Responsible Business and Corporate Social Responsibility  Awards are set to be held on 21 November at the Rainbow Towers Hotel in Harare.

The organisers of the event, which is set to be held under the theme, “Shaping responsible business towards the attainment of Vision 2030” highlighted that the event was meant to recognise achievers in sustainable and corporate social responsibility in Zimbabwe.

“CSRNZ is happy to celebrate and appreciate the best of sustainability and corporate social responsibility in Zimbabwe at the third National Responsible Business and CSR awards. The awards are inspired by the immense contribution of and involvement in the upliftment of people and communities of Zimbabwe,” the network said in a statement announcing the event this week.

The network indicated that award winners would be drawn from various sectors of the Zimbabwean economy.

“Winners are mobilised from the diverse sectors and industries which have created positive impact towards Zimbabwe’s sustainable development and promotion of Government’s Vision 2030 and Sustainable Development Goals,” the network said.

The awards event comprises 18 categories which include Zimbabwe’s Top 20 Sustainable Companies, Top CSR Manager of the Year, Sustainability Innovation Award, and Lifetime Achievement Award among others.

“Over the years we have not recognised and rewarded the key CSR players such as the CSR Managers, who have the uphill task of convincing companies to invest in some corporate social responsibility initiatives especially in these economically challenging times. This is why we added new categories such as the Top CSR Manager of the Year award among others,” said CSRNZ Executive Director, Willard Razawo.

Razawo also highlighted that the nature and magnitude of the Cyclone Idai disaster which struck Chimanimani and Chipinge Districts in Manicaland Province in March this year had spawned another category, the Top Charitable Companies in Response to Cyclone Idai award, to enable CSRNZ to recognise and reward companies which went beyond the normal CSR call to assist people of the affected communities.
