NEW YORK and LONDON, Dec. 6, 2021 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

World Commerce & Contracting celebrate annual Innovation & Excellence Awards 
for leaders in commercial and contract management

World Commerce & Contracting (formerly IACCM) celebrated its annual Innovation 
& Excellence Awards on December 1st to highlight the crucial work being done in 
the field of commerce and contracting. During a virtual ceremony, the nonprofit 
association recognised winners affecting real change in the contracts and 
commercial management (CCM) sector. 

Sally Guyer, Global CEO of World Commerce & Contracting, said the awards 
reflect the newfound global attention being brought to the discipline due to 
the pandemic.

"While we've experienced crisis and pain, we've also had the privilege of 
witnessing unprecedented transformations, new and stronger commitments to ESG, 
and a renewed sense of purpose and dedication to making things better for our 
teams, organizations, and society," she said. 

The nominees and winners represent a wide variety of different institutions 
across EMEA, APAC and Americas which Sally says is further evidence of the 
growing diversity of the CCM community. And the value they bring to society! 
From improving commercial relationships to advocating for more sustainable 
working practices. 

Sustainability was a key theme of the awards, particularly the critical role 
the CCM community plays in driving positive outcomes. Pierre-Francois Thaler, 
Cofounder of EcoVadis, spoke at the ceremony about the importance of taking 
personal responsibility for our impact on the environment. 

The judging panel consisted of industry experts from organisations such as 
Oxford University, Rolls Royce, Harvard University and Accenture.
