How it works

Online applications are open from 25 February 2019 to 7 April 2019.

Entries will be evaluated in 3 phases:

  1. Applicants will be screened to ensure they meet the eligibility criteria.
  2. National market surveillance authorities will select top candidates from each country.
  3. An EU jury made up of high-level EU officials, representatives from NGOs, industry and/or academia will then choose the finalists who will be screened against internationally recognised corporate social responsibility (CSR) criteria.

Three SMEs and three larger companies will receive a Gold, Silver or Bronze Award in each category, making a total of 12 winners.
