Pillar Nonprofit Network is joining up with the London Chamber of Commerce to reward businesses with a sense of social responsibility.
The two organizations announced recently they are getting ready to award the first ever Corporate Social Responsibility Award at Canada’s biggest Business Achievement awards.
London’s Business Achievement Awards will be held on March 19, 2014, at the London Convention Centre and nominations are now being accepted. To nominate a local business for the award, visit http://www.londonchamber.com/events/business_achievement_awards.
This year, Pillar will be partnering with the chamber to choose a winner in this new category, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). The criteria are tough, according to Chris Moss, Pillar Social Enterprise program manager, but ensure a socially conscious business in London will be recognized.
CSR is about businesses that are determined to have a positive impact on the world in which they operate. This year, the first annual CSR will rate businesses on their achievement in the following areas: governance; reporting transparency; people, programs and engagement; employee engagement; environmental stewardship; supply chain management; and charitable donations and sponsorships.
