“Like the Global Sourcing Council, we believe that sustainable and socially responsible business practices are critical for people and planet, and we are honored that SOIL’s work in Haiti is being recognized as a model for how to make communities more sustainable while providing critical services and creating jobs.”
“We are incredibly honored to receive the Employee Engagement Award on behalf of hundreds of Bakers who have been empowered through Open Hiring. This recognition embodies the deeply held values of transformation and potential at Greyston Bakery and emboldens us in our goal to transform hiring in the US. “
“Sustainability should be more than a meaningless buzzword. And GSC 3SAwards is reminding us of what it truly is to be sustainable. Our partners and team at Sustainable Health Enterprises (SHE) are honored to help exemplify this and be a leader that can inspire others.”
“AMBA has realized our DREAM and we now help others. We are delighted and proud to receive the GSC 3s awards in the Impact Sourcing category. Now we can help many more adults like us worldwide.”
“We are delighted to receive the GSC’s Innovative Sourcing Award. Aduna’s model addresses the failed aid structure in Africa whereby cash-crop development projects routinely fail due to lack of market. We reverse this by creating demand for under-utilised indigenous natural products with high potential in the global wellbeing market, and then directing the demand created to small-scale producers via our value-add supply chain, creating sustainable income flows.”
“It is an absolute honor for us at DiDi’s, to be the recipient of the GSC 3S People’s Choice Award. We are extremely delighted and thrilled, as this award is a true validation of our work in Educating, Enabling and Empowering women in our community in Lucknow, India. Through our work we build sustainable and secure livelihoods for women and their families by providing them financial and emotional independence within a universe of care. Our women at DiDi’s feel nurtured, confident, empowered and completely in control of their lives – living a life of absolute gumption and true independence!”
