CR Magazine’s 2019 Responsible CEO Award Finalists Honored at 3BL Forum: Brands Taking Stands™ – What’s Next



WASHINGTON, October 29, 2019 /3BL Media/ - Corporate Responsibility Magazine honored its awardees for the 2019 Responsible CEO of the Year and Lifetime Achievement awards at 3BL Forum: Brands Taking Stands™ – What’s Next.

Presented during the annual Responsible CEO Awards and Recognition Dinner at 3BL Forum, these awards are given to corporate executives who embody bold, innovative leadership in delivering on environmental, social and governance (ESG) commitments—and this year’s finalists are no exception. 

The recipients of the 2019 Responsible CEO of the Year and Lifetime Achievement awards are as follows:

  • Responsible CEO of the Year: Public Company – Hans Vestberg, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Verizon

  • Responsible CEO of the Year: ESG Leadership – Jeff Eckel, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Hannon Armstrong

  • Responsible CEO of the Year: Nonprofit Organization – Sylvia Acevedo, Chief Executive Officer, Girl Scouts of the USA

  • Responsible CEO of the Year: Brands Taking Stands™ Leadership – Brad MacAfee, Chief Executive Officer and Senior Partner, Porter Novelli 

  • Lifetime Achievement – David Taylor, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, Procter & Gamble

Whether it was by minimizing their company’s environmental footprint, investing in a green future, embedding diversity and inclusion into the fabric of company culture or ushering in a new wave of female leaders and innovators, this year’s finalists have helped to define responsible leadership at a time when it is needed most.

“Congratulations to our awardees—we know they will continue to be forces for good by championing a strong environmental, social and governance agenda,” said Dave Armon, CEO of 3BL Media and publisher of CR Magazine. “We applaud the personal commitment by this year’s CEOs for embedding ESG at the very center of their businesses and for the impact they are having as exceptional leaders.”

Awards and recognition programs abound, but being recognized as a Responsible CEO is especially meaningful as the judging panel consists of past recipients of Corporate Responsibility Magazine’s Responsible CEO of the Year Award.

Produced by 3BL Media, 3BL Forum is an annual gathering of corporate responsibility and sustainability practitioners that emphasizes networking, case studies, new research and compelling presentations from companies committed to making progress against an ambitious ESG agenda.
