NEW YORK and LONDON, Dec. 6, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- World Commerce & Contracting (formerly IACCM) celebrated its annual Innovation & Excellence Awards on December 1st to highlight the crucial work being done in the field of commerce and contracting. During a virtual ceremony, the nonprofit association recognised winners affecting real change in the contracts and commercial management (CCM) sector.

Sally Guyer, Global CEO of World Commerce & Contracting, said the awards reflect the newfound global attention being brought to the discipline due to the pandemic.

"While we've experienced crisis and pain, we've also had the privilege of witnessing unprecedented transformations, new and stronger commitments to ESG, and a renewed sense of purpose and dedication to making things better for our teams, organizations, and society," she said.

The nominees and winners represent a wide variety of different institutions across EMEA, APAC and Americas which Sally says is further evidence of the growing diversity of the CCM community. And the value they bring to society! From improving commercial relationships to advocating for more sustainable working practices.

Sustainability was a key theme of the awards, particularly the critical role the CCM community plays in driving positive outcomes. Pierre-Francois Thaler, Cofounder of EcoVadis, spoke at the ceremony about the importance of taking personal responsibility for our impact on the environment.

The judging panel consisted of industry experts from organisations such as Oxford University, Rolls Royce, Harvard University and Accenture.
