Citizens Awards

Congratulations to the 2022 Citizens Awards Winners!

For more than 20 years, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Citizens Awards have highlighted how businesses serve as a force for good, expanding opportunity and driving progress in every aspect of society.  

We are proud to announce this year's winners, showcasing the extraordinary impact of business. These eight companies have shown remarkable leadership in driving solutions to the world’s toughest problems, from developing a STEM program to support the future aerospace workforce, to reducing waste and emissions across the supply chain, to delivering critical relief items to Ukrainian refugees. 

Winners were announced at the U.S. Chamber Foundation's Corporate Citizenship Conference & Awards: Business Solves on November 16, 2022. You can watch the award program and the acceptance speeches here. Join us in congratulating this year's winners and all of the finalists.
