About this award

The ICIS Sustainability Leader Award will be based on a shortlist of 4 individuals that will be compiled by a Shortlist Committee, made up of senior experts from across ICIS. The winner will then be chosen by an external Judging Panel.



This award is for the leader who can best demonstrate that they, and their organisation, are committed to supporting sustainable development throughout their products, processes and supply chain. This award will be given to someone who has demonstrated a strong commitment to improving the environmental sustainability of their organisation and who is seeking to improve their long-term sustainable development goals.



The Judging Panel will be looking for:

  • Appropriate sustainability strategies across the organisation
  • Evidence where these strategies support at least 2 of the UN's Sustainable Development Goals
  • A visible commitment as a leader towards these strategies
  • A leader of an organisation whose sustainability reports comply with industry standards


The winner of the Sustainable Leader award was Saori Duboung - Member of the Board of Executive Directors of BASF. Click the thumbnail below to hear his thoughts on winning.
