Corporate Social Responsibility Award

This award recognises companies and organisations that have made a positive impact on society through their innovative and sustainable CSR initiatives during the last 2 years, which is above and beyond normal operations and not part of the ‘day job’.

Recognising that Knowsley is “Better Together” the award will recognise a business or organisation that has a stand-out CSR agenda and best demonstrates respect for individuals, communities, and the environment in the way they do business.  For example, this could include Covid-19 response, reducing carbon footprint, charitable efforts, the health and wellbeing of your employees/volunteers, and/or developing your local community.

  • Evidence of the commitment to CSR and why it fits within the business / organisation’s aims and objectives

  • An explanation and evidence of the impact and outcomes of activities associated with being socially responsible
