Call for applications – Weicker Prize


Organised in collaboration with BGL BNP Paribas, INDR and UEL, the Weicker Foundation’s Sustainable Economic Progress Prize is aimed at companies with the ESR label of the INDR.

With this prize, endowed with 10,000 euros, the Alphonse Weicker Foundation is actively promoting CSR strategy as a new requirement for companies, as promoted in international standards such as ISO 26000 and GRI, and described in the chapter on CSR strategy in the INDR’s ESR Guide. BGL BNP PARIBAS is supporting this initiative with a second prize of EUR 2,500 to be determined by the jury.

Kik Schneider, Chairman of the Weicker Foundation, confirms “the desire of both the Foundation and BGL BNP Paribas to continue their support for companies in their efforts to contribute to a more sustainable and inclusive growth model after a particularly difficult year”.
