The third addition of the Atlas Award, organized by the ITL Group, will be presented on Tuesday, Nov. 7, at the Hungarian Academy of Sciences in Budapest. It will honor a “Hungary-based business hero” who shares the values of Ethics, Sustainability and Creativity in their professional life, in the words of the event website.
The Atlas Award was created to “provide public recognition for leaders and business people who have distinguished themselves by making substantial efforts to render their enterprise sustainable, constantly coming up with new and innovative ideas, all of this by keeping in mind the wellbeing of their partners and employees.”
Nominations for the 2023 event closed on Oct. 15, with the awards jury due to meet yesterday (Thursday, Nov. 2).
The 2022 award went to Dimitry Ljasuk, founder of Pozitivo Digital, for his ethical, sustainable, and creative approach, and his company’s commitment to shaping a better world.
ITL Group says the aim of the award “is to inspire others navigating these times of rapid change, and contributing positively to our society.”
The prize is an artwork by the Budapest-based Italian artist Marco Veronese, a fusion of Atlas and Vitruvian Man.
“The business community is evolving thanks to you [the voting public]; join us! Together for a better world,” says Alessandro Farina, managing director of ITL Group.
Speaking of the inspiration behind the foundation of the award, Farina says he drew on his roots.
“I come from an Italian family with a long entrepreneurial tradition that goes back two centuries. From a young age, I learned that entrepreneurs have a moral obligation to their predecessors and to future generations for building a better world,” he explained.
“We call this moral obligation an “E.S.C. approach,” standing for Ethics, Sustainability and Creativity and these are the values that inspired the foundation of Atlas World whose projects we hope will inspire other people facing this era of lightning-fast change to make a positive impact on our society.”
