Responsible Business Awards in Scotland

Business in the Community Scotland’s Responsible Business Awards celebrate the very best of responsible business.

Business in the Community Scotland Responsible Business Awards are open to any business which has its headquarters / main business operation based in Scotland, or any Scottish SME. Now in its 19th year, these prestigious Awards recognise a wide range of positive business activities, from supporting rural communities, to helping young people develop skills for the future and investing in the wellbeing of employees.

Scotland Responsible Large Business of the Year, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, receiving their trophy at the Scotland Responsible Business Gala Dinner and Ceilidh 2016.

The awards seek to celebrate companies who make a difference in their community by taking practical action to tackle pressing social and environmental issues.

Rigorously judged by an informed and mixed panel including politicians, business leaders and academics, the Awards celebrate those that are creating sustainable solutions to our most pressing challenges.

This year’s event took place at Prestonfield, Edinburgh on 28 June 2016 - read the news story about the event - and we’re delighted to announce our winners:
