Business in the Community NI’s Managing Director, Kieran Harding, said: “We are delighted that so many companies have entered this year, demonstrating their commitment to the responsible business movement, and showcasing the practical ways in which their organisations are taking action to be a force for good in society.
“The Responsible Business Awards recognise those organisations that are truly having an impact on their people, the planet and the places where they operate. Judging this year coincided with Responsible Business Week , so it has been a real opportunity for all those involved to amplify their good business activities and stories.
“Once again, the calibre of entries was exceptionally high, and I’m sure all of our judges found the shortlisting process a challenge. I would like to take this opportunity to wish all finalists the very best of luck and we look forward to welcoming everyone to the gala awards dinner at Belfast Waterfront Hall on Thursday 24 May where the winners will be announced.”
