La Banque Postale and Project Syndicate to launch the Sustainability Book Award

La Banque Postale and Project Syndicate, an international non-profit media organisation, are launching the "Sustainability Book Award", a new international academic prize that will be awarded each year to a book that contributes to a better understanding of global sustainability issues. The first winner of the award will be announced in July 2023 following the deliberations of an international jury of business leaders and sustainability experts.

The "Sustainability Book Award" is the result of a partnership between two players resolutely committed to a fair and sustainable transition of our societies, our economies and our development models. It is intended to recognise books that deepen and improve understanding of major issues and trends that will shape the 21st century.

I am proud to see this first edition come to fruition with the support of a prestigious jury made up of economic figures and experts in sustainable development. This partnership with Project Syndicate is in line with the DNA of La Banque Postale, a player committed to the just transition. It demonstrates our deep commitment to supporting academic research and scientific work, which are often the source of major advances and developments in our societies, and are also the foundations on which trust is built between a population and its leaders.

Philippe Heim — Chairman of the Executive Board of La Banque Postale, Executive Vice-President of Le Groupe La Poste
