The Financial Times is inviting business school students and faculty members to enter 2023 Responsible Business Education Awards. Those interested may enter until October 28.

The awards honor those who have engaged in innovative projects over the last three years which have had positive impacts on society or the environment. They also celebrate business schools “the put purpose above profit” and academic research the produces “smart ideas with real-world impact.”

The three categories are best student-led projects which have partnered with organizations, best business school teaching cases or pedagogical resources with a focus on environmental issues and best business school academic research with evidence of positive impacts in society.

Past honorees include:

  • Johanna Baare, IE Business School alumnus, who began Traceless, which uses natural biopolymers in agricultural industry residues to replace plastic materials.
  • Enrico Biffis and Erik Chavez from the Ecole Polytechnique in Paris, who wrote a paper about how parametric insurance can improve access to finance and technology in low income countries.
  • Gaetano Lapenta, Politecnico di Milano School of Management alumnus, who began Fybra, which exploits natural ventilation to improve air quality in enclosed areas.

Contestants will be judged by an external panel of judges and announced in editorial coverage by The Financial Times.
