About the MB100
- Comprising corporate CEOs, sustainability leaders, impact investors, entrepreneurs and micro-entrepreneurs, the MB100 cuts across geography, industry, role and company size to recognise outstanding work being done to solve the most pressing social and environmental issues they are facing today.
- The year-long award programme consists of pro-bono services from the partners, mentorship, workshops, networking and storytelling to help winners showcase their work and increase their positive impact.
- Each leader must have:
- Created positive, direct and intended impact aligned to one or more SDGs in the last 12 months.
- Been the driving force behind the product, service or project that combines purpose and profit.
- Judges are considering:
- Originality of the idea behind the product, service or project.
- Longevity of the product, service or project.
- Intersectionality – how successful is the product in creating impact across multiple SDGs?
- Localisation – is the product or service helping local communities take better control of their lives?
- Scalability of the product, service or project – is it replicable?
- Inclusion – is there a focus on representation of minority groups?
- Collaboration – has the leader made best use of the core competencies of different stakeholders, and encouraged them to work together?
- Affordability – what level of investment did the product or service require? (Low investment, high impact products or services will be favoured).
- Use of innovation/technology to power the product, service or project.
- Is the leader a role model for, and champion of, meaningful business beyond their own company?
