The 2016 Responsible Business Awards celebrate inspiring examples of businesses that are making a significant difference by improving their local communities, creating more inclusive workplaces and tackling environmental challenges.
They were announced to coincide with Responsible Business Week (18-22 April 2016), an annual initiative to increase awareness of the positive contribution of business in society.
The Natural Grid project shows how our land and natural assets can be managed in an efficient, collaborative and environmentally responsible way, ensuring these valuable resources and the benefits they provide are there for the longer term.
Our ‘EmployAbility, Let’s Work Together’ programme helps students with learning disabilities achieve paid employment, supporting those who have had a very challenging start in life.
