MILAN--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Innovation and sustainability: these are the keys to overcome the credit crunch. A vivid example of it was represented on Friday, the 4th October 2013 in Milan at Palazzo Mezzanotte, the Italian headquarter of the London Stock Exchange Group during the IAIR AWARDS IV Edition (www.iairawards.com) with the patronage of the European Commission.
Over 400 people attended the event and more than 50 companies coming from European countries - but also from the Middle East and from North America - received this prestigious recognition that comes out from the IAIR readers votes, followed by the selection of the editorial staff on the basis of ten main criteria.
ICT (Rosberg, Atmira, Arkadin, Xstream), software (Softkey, Fabasoft, Sciemus, Neurosoft), but also luxury (Swarovski) and green energy (Frendy Energy, Metaenergia, Innowatio) have been the most awarded fields along with legal excellences like the French law firm Kiejman & Marembert.
The IAIR Sustainability Awards aimed to identify those companies and financial institutions that are holding businesses more accountable for sustainability performances, with a specific focus on ‘eco-friendly choices’. Among them: EcoPlanet Bamboo Group, SP3H, ZMDI, Storebrand and then Royal Bank of Canada, the Spanish Banca March and the Turkish Garanti Bank.
If IT services and solutions have made the part of the lion with competitive software houses, banks and financial institutions, often thanks to these innovative systems, have developed a new approach to credit and to wealth management: Banking Production Center, UniCredit, Loomis Sayles - part of Natixis group - the Russian Vnesheconombank, Bank Technique, DIF Broker, Tyrus Capital, FXDD and FxPro.
«We want to recognize the excellent work of smaller, nationally-based firms – said Mr. Guido Giommi, IAIR President - those operating in niche areas, along with top brands. Excellence, innovation, green initiatives and sustainable development are the key-words of this prize».
The IAIR Awards road show will continue in Hong Kong (on the 22nd November), New York, São Paulo and London along with its related events in Singapore, Shanghai, Kuala Lumpur and Dubai.
