The annual Sustainable Business Leaders Competition aims to promote the efforts and engagement of the private sector in the field of sustainable development in Bosnia and Herzegovina.The focus of this year’s Award for Business Leaders of Sustainable Development in BiH is on companies that create and maintain quality jobs and actively work on the decarbonisation of their business. GRI standards were the basis for the development of the methodology used to evaluate the 106 applications received. The project aims to empower and prepare the private and public sector partners in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) for the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which directly supports Bosnia and Herzegovina's efforts to contribute to the largest global plan, Agenda 2030.
The business leader of sustainable development for 2021, i.e., the overall winner of this year’s competition and the company that won the most points for meeting the GRI standards (Global Reporting Initiative) and the realization of SDGs, is Smrčak d.o.o.
