General Awards Information

To recognise the growing importance of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) and Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) in the treasury marketplace, TMI is delighted to launch the Treasury4Good Awards.

Dedicated to those corporate treasury teams, banks, and vendors truly making a difference to their organisation’s sustainable growth – and the world around them – these are the first Awards of their kind in our industry.

About the Treasury4Good Awards

Once considered ‘soft’ topics, CSR, ESG and D&I are now seen as vital strategic tools for business growth and success. What’s more, customers, suppliers, employees, andshareholders are increasingly looking for banks and corporates to generate a positive social impact, whilst improving financial performance and working towards a more sustainable business model – in every sense of the word.

Creating a diverse workplace and embracing ethical practices are also critical for organisations looking to stand out from the crowd in a market where reputation is everything.

As the gatekeepers of company cash, corporate treasury professionals, together with the providers of treasury services, have a vital role to play in supporting CSR, ESG and D&I initiatives. Together with driving bottom line improvements, global corporates and banks are now expected to be responsible role models – addressing local and international challenges by using their financial reach to improve lives, society, business, and the environment.
