National CSR Awards 2016 now open for entries
Entries are now open for the 2016 National CSR Awards (NCSRA), which will celebrate the very best in CSR and sustainability in a high-profile ceremony and accompanying seminar programme, at The Crystal, London, on 12 May 2016.
Stuart Poore, Director of Sustainability at WWF, one of the event’s Supporting Partners, believes that the Awards give momentum to the CSR and sustainability movement: “As an increasing number of companies put environmental and social purpose at the heart of their strategies, the National CSR Awards are a superb way to celebrate the achievements of the business leaders who are inspiring change.”
With the introduction of three international awards - Best International Sustainable Community Project, Best International Conservation Project and Global Sustainable Transport – all 24 award categories* look to address the key business issues that are essential to creating a more sustainable future.
Launched last year to honour excellence in the CSR and sustainability space, Karen Sutton, Chief Executive of NCSRA, says that companies of all sizes should consider taking part: “The Awards are looking to reward and recognise business excellence. All entries have an equal chance of winning.”
The Awards will be judged by a high profile and wholly independent judging panel of experts including representatives from Cisco, Trussell Trust, Water Aid, IBE, 10:10, Forum for the Future, WWF, Siemens and ICCSR. A growing list of the judges can be found here.
Companies can submit their entries online here - and those applying before 29 January 2016 can take advantage of an early bird 20% discount.
Entries will be accepted until 11.59pm on 12 March 2016.
