Europe celebrates inaugural CSR awards



The 60 winners of the inaugural European Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Award Scheme have celebrated their achievements at a special ceremony in Brussels.

This pan-European award scheme aims to inspire CSR excellence in partnerships, with particular emphasis on collaborative programmes that tackle sustainability through innovation. Successful projects represent a variety of business sectors, ranging from banking to pharmaceuticals.

European Commission vp Antonio Tajani, commissioner for Industry and entrepreneurship, said: "The remarkable work of the winning partnerships highlights the best in corporate social responsibility practices in Europe today. It shows that a strategic approach to CSR is increasingly important to the competitiveness of SMEs and large companies. It also encourages more social and environmental responsibility from the corporate sector at a time when the crisis has damaged consumer confidence and the levels of trust in business." 

For full details of this year's winners see the July issue of Ethical Performance, out next week!
