We are delighted to be sponsoring the Community (CSR) Award again at the Business Eye Awards 2019. Now in their thirteenth consecutive year, the prestigious awards which celebrate the success and dedication of Northern Ireland companies and organisations across the public, private and voluntary sectors will take place in the ICC Belfast on Thursday 28th November.
As a lead organisation in the promotion of generosity and philanthropy, we connect people who care with causes that matter in Northern Ireland and we are proud to present the Community (CSR) Award to a deserving organisation. Corporate social responsibility plays an important role for companies in NI and this specialist category sets out to recognise an organisation from the private, public or voluntary sector, making a clear and impactful contribution to its local community as a whole.
Last year the ATG Group where awarded the Community (CSR) award for their positive involvement in the community. The ATG group are an environmental company who work to eliminate or reduce the amount of waste material going to landfill. They created a ‘Live Here Love Here’ campaign which involved various project staff donating 100s of hours of their time to keep the community looking beautiful. This was done through litter picking, undertaking maintenance work for the local primary school, planting trees in the area and many more projects to help the Coleraine community thrive.
Siofra Healy, Community Foundation, Director of Philanthropy said “We believe it’s important to recognise companies and organisations who are making a powerful change in their local community. Community change does not come from one person alone, we see the true impact when forces from all sectors and backgrounds get involved.”
The closing date for entries to Northern Ireland’s Business Eye Awards is Friday, 25th October, 2019, with the judging panel due to meet in early November. Do you know an organisation who deserves recognition for their efforts in the community? We encourage nominations from public, private or voluntary organisations who are making a clear impact in their local community. Nominate now .
