Every other year, the award is given to one or more gradu­ates of a mas­ter's pro­gram around the world for their out­stand­ing mas­ter's theses on CSR or the con­tri­bu­tion of com­pan­ies/or­gan­iz­a­tions to sus­tain­able devel­op­ment.

In 2018, the award will be given to gradu­ates who com­pleted their mas­ter's theses in the 2015/16 or the 2016/17 aca­demic year.

The win­ner will re­ceive € 3,000 - € 1,500 of which will go dir­ectly to him/her, while the other € 1,500 will be donated to an en­vir­on­mental or so­cial pro­ject chosen by the win­ner.
