The SERAS – CSR Awards is an annual project, which aims to promote as well as raise awareness about the roles organizations play with emphasis on their responsibility towards stakeholders and the social development of Africa.
The 2019 edition of the SERAs was themed Driving Sustainability Through Inclusive Growth: Strategic Partnership as a Key to Unlocking Opportunities and it focused on organizations whom through their CSR and sustainability activities have made renowned impact addressing the SDG’s.
The 13th edition of the Awards brought together sustainability experts, public relations practitioners, brand owners and public office holders.
The SERA awards platform, which is widely considered the gold-standard recognition in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Sustainability in Nigeria, was conceived to lead the drive towards actualization of the sustainable development goals in Africa by enabling a platform that promotes, measures and harmonizes the contributions of private sector, governments/public sector and non-governmental organizations to attain set targets.
