The Ethical Corporation Responsible Business Awards looks at recognising organisations who have been agenda-leading in corporate responsibility in 2017, with applications backed up by verifiable evidence from third parties.
This year, two new categories were added. The first new category was Sustainability Team of the Year – recognising that it’s a team effort to make real sustainable gains. The second was for the New Entrant of the Year which looked to shine the spotlight on new innovative projects and companies that have entered the Awards for the first time.
The RBS Sustainable Banking team won the Sustainability Team of the Year, as the judges recognised that: “The RBS team met the criteria in a clear manner. There is evidence that the company is providing much needed support to local communities, and metrics demonstrating tangible impacts that the business is making to society. A clear demonstration of leadership in this field.”
Winners in all categories were awarded for stand-out projects that demonstrate true leadership through impact, scalability and innovation.
