Astute industrialist and Chief Executive Officer of JRA Cosmetics Limited, Ms. Jane Reason Ahadzie, has been honoured as ‘Humanitarian of the Year’ at the annual Sustainability and Social Investments Awards’ sixth edition held over the weekend in Accra.
Her company, JRA Cosmetics, also won the award as ‘Best Company in Promoting Art & Culture’ for its immense contributions and investments toward development of the country’s creative arts and culture industry.
In her interaction with the media, Ms. Ahadzie thanked organisers for the honour that has been bestowed on her – adding that such recognition will inspire the company to deepen its social and sustainability commitments.
“The company has been involved in several humanitarian activities over the years, especially in the area of arts and culture where we have supported in diverse ways.
“We are very grateful for this recognition, and we are hopeful that it will inspire us to do more to better the lot of society through sustainable operations and actions,” she said.
The annual Sustainability and Social Investment Awards seek to honour and celebrate individuals and corporate bodies which have embedded socially responsible programmes in their operations for the broader good of society.
JRA Cosmetics as a leading cosmetics, skin and hair-care as well as basic household products brand in the country, has embarked on numerous humanitarian activities in the domestic arts and culture space.
This aggressive investment is driven largely by the humanitarian and philanthropic nature of the company’s founder, to make sustainable impacts in the lives of people and broader society.
This year’s Sustainability and Social Investments Awards were on the theme ‘Leading the sustainability transition through public-private partnerships and collaborations’, and rewarded over 40 businesses, companies and individuals which championed sustainable projects in the period under review.
