ARM is one of the 50 companies nominated.


Speaking about the award, John W.H. Denton AO, Secretary-General of the International Chamber of Commerce, said, “Innovation in challenging times is more vital than ever. While these pioneering companies play a leading role in their respective ecosystem, they are also having an impact internationally.
