THE PONTIS Foundation has opened the nominations for the Via Bona Slovakia corporate award for 2015, with the goal of celebrating firms which do business in a responsible and transparent way, respect their employees, clients, and environment and are sensitive towards the milieu they work in.

Companies which are enterprising in Slovakia in a fair and responsible way can vie for the award, Pontis Foundation head Lenka Surotchak told the SITA newswire.

Companies can enter the 16th year of Via Bona Slovakia until January 22 of next year; the awards will be handed out at a gala evening on March 26, 2016 in Bratislava. Since 1998, Pontis has awarded nearly 100 companies. More information can be found at www.ViaBona.sk.
