2016 Categories and Entry

With nine categories covering a wide range of responsible business themes, we would encourage you to submit an entry and receive recognition for your commitment to doing GOOD business.

By recognising and rewarding such commitment, we aim to inspire others and deepen the growing culture of corporate responsibility in Northern Ireland. Corporate responsibility is a key differentiator for organisations of all sizes and across all sectors, particularly in the current climate.
