APCRG National Responsible Business Champion awards 2015


20th July 2015

The All-Party Parliamentary Corporate Responsibility Group (APCRG) has announced that London City Airport (LCY) has won its inaugural National Responsible Business Champion award.

London City Airport was chosen by a Parliamentary judging panel which looked at nominations from MPs representing constituencies across the UK. The runner-up was Marks & Spencer plc (Loughborough Store).

Two other companies - Urban & Civic plc, nominated by APCRG Co-Chairman Jonathan Djanogly MP, and Wright Bus Ltd were highly commended by the Parliamentary judging panel.

The Speaker, Mr John Bercow MP, said:

“I’m pleased to support the introduction of this new award based on MPs’ nominations. The concept of Constituency Responsible Business Champions recognises the keen awareness MPs have of the contribution local employers make to their constituencies and MPs’ ability to champion great constituency success stories.

I hope the award scheme will go from strength to strength as more MPs take the opportunity to nominate Constituency Responsible Business Champions and put them forward for this national award over the years ahead.

Jonathan Djanogly MP said:

“We introduced this award because we wanted to encourage MPs to look closely at the overall impact local companies are having in their constituencies and to give them an opportunity to raise awareness of their most responsible companies.

It is clear from the nominations we received that MPs are in close touch with local employers and, as you would expect, have a good feel for the overall contribution they are making to their local community.”
