The Princess Grace Foundation recently announced the newly created Grace Influential Impact Award, which will be awarded to the Formula 1 team or organization which demonstrates the highest commitment to sustainability, impact and inclusion in 2022.
The award is named after and inspired by Princess Grace of Monaco in honour of her commitment to excellence and positive impact. Grace Influential recognizes Formula 1’s commitment and investment in pioneering technology and innovation toward sustainability.
A judging panel of independent luminaries with a focus on global social responsibility will be announced in the upcoming months. The first Grace Influential Impact Award will be presented at a dedicated ceremony during the Monaco Grand Prix 2022.
According to Brisa Carleton, CEO of the Princess Grace Foundation and Grace Influential, the Grace Influential Impact Award is a prime example of the dedication and commitment to continuing Princess Grace’s legacy of positive change. The initiative wishes to honour and applaud Formula 1 for its leadership in impact and sustainability.
Grace Influential is an initiative which recognizes and celebrates the ongoing influence and impact of Grace Kelly, Princess of Monaco. When Grace Kelly, Oscar winning film star, married Prince Rainier III of Monaco, Hollywood met Royalty. Her modern tastes and extraordinary kindness made Her a beloved icon and an instant trendsetter.
From fashion to luxury to philanthropy, Princess Grace not only helped shape Monaco into the glamorous Principality it is today, but she set a global example for leaving the world a better place.
Overseen by the Princely Family of Monaco, Grace Influential unites established luminaries and new generations around social impact, philanthropy, luxury, fashion and modern Monaco. Grace Influential is operated by the Princess Grace Foundation, a not-for-profit charitable foundation.
