Responsible Business Awards 2018 now closed for entries

October 26, 2017


Business in the Community’s Responsible  Business Awards mission is to inspire the world with stories of success at the heart of the community.

Are you a game-changer? We'd like to hear your ground-breaking responsible business achievements from the past 12 months both in the UK and internationally. We’ll be recognising the best, celebrating them, and providing accreditation through HRH The Prince of Wales Responsible Business Network.

About the awards

It’s time to join the purpose-driven and better-business revolution and put a global spotlight firmly on your organisation for its innovation, leadership, and best practice. Business must heed the clarion call to action and be a positive force for change by moving from commitments, to action. To create cohesive, healthy communities, a thriving society and a flourishing environment which puts people at the heart of the community.

Is your business stepping up to the mark to solve some of the world’s most challenging and urgent issues facing society?  There are 10 categories open across all sectors on a local, national or international level.

Winning a Responsible Business Award is the most coveted and distinguished endorsement of responsible business. As one of the longest running accreditations these awards will catapult your successes to the wider business community, global media, and civil society.

We are looking for the game-changers and disrupters who are really driving positive social, economic and environmental change that creates a paradigm shift in society. Past winners have demonstrated that embedding sustainability and acting responsibly, are in fact, intrinsically linked with the financial bottom line of every business and organisation.

Your story in the press

The businesses with the most inspirational approaches to address our global challenges will appear in our longlist, and be featured in a full-colour Financial Times Responsible Business supplement, reaching more than one million readers.

Take the first step

It’s free to enter and open to businesses of any size, sector and location. You can get support and advice on the entry process and access to our issue experts.

The Prince’s Responsible Business Network endorsement will allow you to engage your own stakeholders and sector about the responsible business agenda in advance of Responsible Business Week 2018 from 23 -27 April.

Entries are open until 9 February 2018 (17:00 GMT).

Our headline sponsors

Without our category sponsors we wouldn’t be able to run the awards and recognise the powerful, positive impact business has on society, so we are very grateful for their continuing support. This year's headline sponsor is Anglian Water.
