The Bonsucro Awards return for their ninth year to recognise individuals, companies and organisations that contribute significantly towards achieving the Bonsucro mission: responsible sugarcane production creates lasting value for the people, communities, businesses, economies and eco-systems in all cane growing origins.

Nominations are open and candidates do not have to be members of Bonsucro, or have their work directly linked to Bonsucro. You are invited to nominate any individual or organisation that you feel is worthy of this award, including yourself.

This year, we would like to see how a nominee has directly impacted on achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. The nominations will be assessed by the Awards Committee, who will select three Bonsucro Inspire Award winners – one for each of the pillars of sustainability – people, planet and profit.

The deadline for submission of nominations is 10 January 2020. The winners of each award will be announced at the Bonsucro Inspire Awards ceremony on Thursday, 26 March 2020 in Guadalajara, Mexico, as part of the Bonsucro Global Week 2020 programme.
