This prestigious award is special recognition of ICO's hard work and its commitment to corporate social responsibility".

These companies are essential to the success of a strong business community in Europe and have demonstrated that they possess the basic principles that we value".

In the second phase, national champions will submit a video documenting their unique history and milestones. A panel of independent judges will then award the 10 best companies in each category the ribbon of honour.
