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.

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.
