Durreen Shahnaz wins Oslo Business for Peace Award
Durreen Shahnaz, an investment banker and media executive-turned-social entrepreneur from Bangladesh, has won the Oslo Business for Peace Award 2017 for transforming the way financial and capital markets are moving beyond profit maximising to maximising purpose and impact. She is the founder of Impact Investment Exchange (IIX), the home of the world’s first social stock exchange and the world’s largest private placement platform for impact investing. The winners of Oslo Business for Peace Award were announced in Oslo City Hall on Tuesday. Other winners of this year’s Oslo Business for Peace Award are Murad Al-Katib, Harley Seyedin and Elon Musk.

The four honourees will receive their awards in a ceremony in Oslo City Hall on May 16, as part of the annual Business for Peace Summit. Murad Al-Katib is the CEO of AGT Foods — one of the largest suppliers of pulse crops in the world. Seyedin is an Iranian immigrant to the United States who has spent his life building a multi-national electricity and low carbon infrastructure development business in China and Southeast Asia. Musk is the founder of Tesla and is receiving the award for his leadership of the way forward in the automotive industry. The selection of Honourees took place in London on February 9, where the independent Award Committee consisting of Nobel Prize winners in Peace and Economics decided upon the business worthy leaders of 2017. The Oslo Business for Peace Award is granted by the Business for Peace Foundation, which is an Oslo based foundation who honours individual leaders who create value for business and society in an ethical and responsible way, helping to build a peaceful and prosperous environment for the world. In September last year, Asia Society honoured Durreen Shahnaz with the Asia Game Changer Award for social-impact investing that changed the game for millions.
