Community and Human Rights (CAHR) Awards
Business decisions influence employees, customers, suppliers and competitors, while business operations affect communities, government and the environment where they operate. This is more so for companies in the extractive industries.
As extractive companies have severe negative impacts on their host communities, they are expected to deliver lasting social and economic benefits to the areas where they have their footprints.
The Community and Human Rights (CAHR) Awards (pronounced ‘Car Awards’) provides a platform that encourages businesses to take extraneous steps to correct the anomalies of engagement within communities, primarily extractive communities, by acknowledging and appreciating best performing companies.
