To recognize efforts to preserve the environment through sustainable development, Odebrecht, the Brazilian construction company, has opened inscriptions for the 2015 edition of the Premio Rana Dorada (Golden Frog Prize), which awards a $20,000 grand prize to Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) that meet contest requirements. This is the second year of the contest. Experts in community development and environmental conservation will evaluate the projects, measuring methodology, social impact and sustainability.
Rita Spadafora, Executive Director of the Association for the Conservation of Nature (ANCON), and last year’s prizewinner, stated that the contest acts as a showcase of environmental projects currently taking place in the country.
Arturo Graell, Director of Institutional Relations and Sustainability at Odebrecht, stressed that company’s “commitment to the environment and the communities in which it plays a role.”
Inscriptions are open until Abril 15, through the website PremioRanaDorada.com.
