NTU has won international commendation for its efforts that demonstrate resilience amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
The University received the COVID-19 Agility and Response runner-up award at the recent Duty of Care Awards organised by International SOS Foundation. NTU is the only Institute of Higher Learning in Singapore chosen for the Duty of Care Awards.
The COVID-19 Agility and Response award was a new special category at this year's Duty of Care Awards to formally recognise the most inspiring initiatives and contributions taken by an organisation in the face of the global pandemic.
The Awards were presented on 24 September 2021 in London at the Duty of Care Summit, which gathered global leaders and key decision makers to discuss trends, challenges and best practices for protecting the health, safety, security and wellbeing of their employees in a COVID-19 world.
Under the award’s COVID-19 Agility and Response category, NTU is placed ahead of several global organisations that received honourable mention including Greiner Packaging, Worley, and Oakwood Worldwide, with NYSE-listed Fortune Brands named the winner.
Winners were selected by a panel of sector-leading expert judges from a host of internationally recognised organisations, including the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and International Code of Conduct Association (ICoCA).
