The inaugural CGM Hornbill Awards 2021 are well and truly underway. By the ominous Friday the 13th deadline, we received a total of 21 applications from across Malaysia.
As many of the applications had strong merit, our judging panel had the difficult and unenviable task of shortlisting the top six from a pool of very worthy proposals that would progress to the finals that will take place virtually, on 26th September at Climate Week New York.
Each application was scored objectively based on four criteria: Project Impact, Planned Project Execution, Experience & track record, and Other beneficiaries (externalities). The top ten applicants were subsequently subjected to a due diligence screening process undertaken by our event partner, PwC.
We are delighted to announce the top six finalists of the inaugural CGM Hornbill Awards 2021.
