One Month to Deadline for Zayed Sustainability Prize

For Zayed Sustainability Prize:
Yanire Brana, 202-792-9338

With just one month to go until the August 9 deadline, the Zayed Sustainability Prize today issued a call for companies, social good organizations, and schools to submit their entries for the annual global award.

This year, the Prize broadened its mandate to align itself with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and the UAE’s developing national agenda.

The Prize now recognizes innovations in the sustainability categories of Health, Food, Energy, Water, and Global High Schools.

Dr. Lamya Fawwaz, Director of the Zayed Sustainability Prize, commented on this year’s submissions process:

“While we have witnessed many outstanding achievements over the past 10 years, we are excited that under the Prize’s new format, interest levels in the new categories of health, food and water have increased. We encourage those with a sustainability solution at hand to apply for the Prize.

“All entries will be assessed on their innovativeness, impact, and capacity to inspire."

Each of the five categories has a winning prize fund of US$600,000, which is primarily awarded so that organizations can further invest and develop their sustainability solution. The Global High Schools category will provide US$100,000 in project funding for each region.
