CR Magazine Announces the 2011 Responsible CEO of Year Award Winners and Lifetime Achievement Honorees
Each year since 2008, CR Magazine has awarded the prestigious Responsible CEO of the Year Award, presented to deserving CEOs — from companies, NGOs, and governments — who, during the previous year, put themselves at personal and professional risk in order to deliver on corporate responsibility promises. This annual award is unique among business honors because it recognizes how individual CEOs have aligned their organization’s interests with that of thousands of stakeholders to do well by doing good and acknowledges leadership in progress, since corporate responsibility represents a discipline that is ever to be improved upon.
In 2011, CR Magazine announced the addition of the Corporate Responsibility Lifetime Achievement Award to recognize an individual whose risk-taking, vision and pioneering spirit have led to significant achievement in the Corporate Responsibility field over the course of their career. All award winners are nominated by fellow members of the CR community and selected by an independent panel of judges composed of previous winners and other recognized leaders.
Recipients were honored at CR Magazine’s Awards Dinner September 27, 2011 at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City.

- Arne Duncan, Secretary, US Department of Education
- Donald Knauss, Chairman and CEO, The Clorox Company
