In the years following World War II, Georges Doriot came up with the idea that the world needed a new kind of educational institution—one that united people, embraced diversity, and leveraged business to rebuild nations and promote peace. He envisioned an institution that could make a meaningful contribution to society.
That institution, of course, was INSEAD. In the decades since its founding in 1957, our school has never wavered from that vision. Our belief in using business as a force for good has come to define who we are, what we stand for, and how we conduct ourselves in the world.
INSEAD Alumni Association Singapore is pleased to launch “Business as a Force for Good” Award (BAFG Award) 2022.
The Award recognizes Singapore companies and individuals who have demonstrated thought-leadership with respect to “Business as a Force for Good”, have a vision, mission statement and strategy clearly demonstrating their commitment, have developed best practices and have achieved remarkable economical results and/or meaningful societal impact.
Eligibility and Award Categories
All Singapore based companies* will be considered for the following award categories:
- BAFG Award 2022 for social enterprise in Singapore

- BAFG Award 2022 for corporates in Singapore (revenue more than S$100m or more than 200 workers)
*Operating as a Singapore legal entity and registered with ACRA https://www.acra.gov.sg/
