Alcan created the Alcan Prize for Sustainability to recognize outstanding contributions to the goal of economic, environmental, and social sustainability by not-for-profit, non-governmental, and civil society organizations around the world.

The shortlist includes one UK charity, FARM-Africa, together with organisations in Nicaragua, Bangladesh, India, USA, China, and Sweden.

This is the first year where all shortlisted organisations will receive Alcan Training Grants. These $15,000 grants will provide the opportunity for a senior representative of each organisation to choose from a range of training opportunities including the chance to earn a post-graduate certificate in Cross Sector Partnerships from the University of Cambridge.
