The National CSR Awards 2017 are now open at www.nationalcsrawards.co.uk.

The annual National CSR Awards – now in its third year – are open to companies of all sizes – from small independents to large plcs – and have become one of the highlights in the business awards calendar for its work in rewarding best practice in the field of CSR and sustainability. With entries growing every year, the awards are highly competitive and reflect the dynamic pace of growth and innovation in corporate responsibility and sustainability business practices.

“The National CSR Awards believe in spreading the message of the importance of being a responsible business – that’s why they were set up,” comments Karen Sutton, founder and CEO of the awards.

“Companies that enter are showing others how true business responsibility can be achieved. And it is through learning from other business models that we hope to encourage the transformation of all businesses on the way to a sustainable and responsible future.”
