September 22, 2021

GLG received bronze in this year’s seventh annual Global Good Awards in the COVID-19 response category. The awards honor purpose-driven organizations that are “making strides towards a better world for people, the planet, and the global economy.” The COVID-19 response category considered large-scale organizations based on innovation, scale, and overall impact of their relief efforts.

In 2020, GLG mobilized its substantial resources to support organizations working on the frontlines of COVID-19. We provided pro bono support to more than 135 organizations in over 40 countries, which collectively reach more than 100M people. GLG’s services helped nonprofit and government organizations protect temperature-sensitive vaccine supply chains, manufacture and distribute PPE, conduct contact tracing in countries with less-developed health systems, and more. GLG also helped the business community safely and smartly navigate the pandemic by hosting more than 3,000 virtual expert events on practically every topic.

Unilever and Aviva placed first and second in the category, respectively. Other finalists included Barclays, Investec, NatWest Group and National Emergencies Trust, and Santander UK.
