Chambers Ireland has announced that nominations for the 2014 Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Awards are open. Now in their eleventh year, the Awards were launched by Mallen Baker, renowned UK-based speaker, writer and strategic advisor on CSR. The awards are run in association with the Department of Environment, Community and Local Government, partnered by Business in the Community Ireland and kindly sponsored by BAM. The launch was kindly hosted by eircom.

Speaking at the official launch earlier this month, Ian Talbot, Chambers Ireland Chief Executive said, “For many businesses, CSR is a chance to go the extra mile; to give back to the local community, staff and suppliers and ensure a more sustainable future for all. At Chambers Ireland, the CSR Awards are our chance to validate the work of these companies, highlight best practice and reward the hard work being undertaken by businesses across the country to engage in CSR.”

“The awards continue to go from strength to strength"

Tina Roche, Business in the Community Ireland Chief Executive continued, “The awards continue to go from strength to strength and each year we see how companies are enhancing and improving their CR strategies and embedding corporate responsibility at the heart of their business. By adopting this embedded and sustained approach to corporate responsibility, companies are yielding the noticeable advantages it can have on the bottom line. These awards champion this practice which is integral to Ireland’s business reputation.”
