This category recognises small and medium-sized businesses (those which employ between 1 and 249 employees) which have successfully embedded responsible business practices (RBPs) throughout their organisation.
In order to be successful, and to drive positive economic, social and environmental change and return commercial benefits, responsible business must be a golden thread running throughout an organisation, from the top (Chief Executive / Managing Director, owner / founder or similar) to all levels of staff.
Through this Award we want to recognise companies in Wales that are moving beyond box-ticking and ad hoc CSR-style activity and celebrate businesses who are demonstrating to their staff, customers, clients, suppliers, stakeholders and to Wales that business is a force for good and makes a difference to our nation’s challenges.
Successful applicants will be able to clearly demonstrate:
They are a values-led organisation, with their organisation’s values driving business (and other) decisions
A commitment being a responsible business / responsible business practices are embedded throughout the organisation
