For many years, DNV GL has invested in finding passionate young people to get involved in our work towards achieving a safe and sustainable future.
Together with Scandinavian think-tank Sustainia, we launched a social media campaign to search for young movers, shakers and change-makers for the third time in 2015 – the Future Sustainability Leader Award. Across the globe, there are inspiring examples of courageous and farsighted individuals, entrepreneurs, businesses and organizations offering solutions to emerging challenges, and innovations that hold the promise to radically improve how human society is organized. This was reflected in the overwhelming number of inspiring nominations we received.
After careful consideration of an impressive shortlist of candidates, we finally chose our two winners: Parrys Raines and Carlos Cadena Gaitan. Read more about them on the DNV GL sustainability blog.
We received over 100 nominations from around the globe and the two 2015 eventual winners were invited to our 2015 Roundtable on sustainability – World of Opportunities.
Earlier winners include Alec Loorz, Kajsa Li Paludan and Grace Muthoni Mwaura, who have gone on to make a mark in their chosen sustainability fields.
