Why enter the Responsible Business Awards 2018?

November 16, 2017

There are plenty of reasons to enter the 2018 Responsible Business Awards. We’ve been celebrating Responsible Business for over 20 years and we’d like to share some of the benefits with you.

Share your success stories with millions of other businesses!

We have 10 categories for you to enter to showcase your ground-breaking stories to an influential audience of millions through The Prince's Responsible Business Network – the largest network of likeminded businesses committed to building a fairer society and more sustainable future. And this year we have introduced a new category - The Connected Places Award. Details of all this year’s categories can be found here.

We will feature inspirational stories and business case studies on our website and share them across all our social media channels – in the last two years, our reach on social media channels has generated over 3.5million impressions.

The businesses with the most inspirational and innovative 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.

James Wilkins, We are Vista, MD 2017 small business winner ‘Responsible Business of the Year’ commented: "To be recognised for the way in which we have put purpose at the heart of our business and through the work we have done with clients to support their desire to have a positive impact is a great achievement."

Recognition through HRH Prince’s Responsible Business Network

More than 400 organisations shared their stories of transforming communities with us last year. Enter the awards to be recognised for the commitment your business is making to address some of the world’s most challenging and urgent issues facing society today.

Winning a Responsible Business Award is still the most coveted and distinguished endorsement of responsible business in the UK and internationally – it’s guaranteed to grab the attention of your clients and suppliers.

Peter Simpson, Anglian Water, Chief Executive, 2017 winner ‘Responsible Business of the Year’ commented: “This award, which has been won previously by M&S, Fujitsu, Veolia and many other great, forward thinking companies, is a wonderful endorsement of our employees, suppliers, and customers who have been part of our sustainability journey.”
