"Many companies across “Area West” (BITC’s operational area for the North West, West Midlands and South West regions) are at the forefront of responsible business practice and we are delighted to recognise these leading examples.
Individually, these three regions are highly distinctive in character but have a shared track record of success and achievement through BITC’s established flagship programmes of Business Class, Ready for Work, and employee volunteering.
BITC’s flagship programmes are reflected in the strength of the award entries in 2013. The Big Tick and winning companies also reflected the importance of the role of small businesses and rural businesses across “Area West”, as well as the opportunities presented by the Marketplace Sustainability Campaign.
In 2013 our Awards programme accredited more than 60 businesses in “Area West” for their outstanding achievements in reaching out to their communities. This included six companies awarded a Big Tick within the Responsible Business of the Year category for demonstrating their long term sustainability strategy and vision: Co-operative Group, Carillion, Jaguar Land Rover, MITIE Group, Manchester Airport Group, and United Utilities.
BITC’s Responsible Business Awards are the perfect opportunity to see the powerful and positive change that can be achieved when companies embrace responsible business practice and find innovative and award winning solutions to challenges with their business and the wider community.
I am delighted to recognise and congratulate all our award winners for 2013."
