Prince’s Responsible Business Network shortlists AllLife South Africa
AllLife South Africa has made the final stage of the 2015 Responsible Business Awards, run by Business in the Community, the Prince’s Responsible Business Network.
AllLife South Africa is one of just six finalists of the prestigious awards scheme – which champions responsible business in the UK and abroad taking action to address social and environmental issues and transform their communities. 63 companies have been selected as Award Finalists from the UK and abroad, across the 14 award categories of the scheme.
Senior representatives from AllLife South Africa will go head to head against the other finalists in the last highly competitive stage of the awards. Each will pitch their submission, in front of a panel of industry experts and business leaders who will choose a winner, the company which best demonstrates significant impact and a strong business case.
Commenting, Ross Beerman, CEO AllLife Group, said: “Although we know that we have real impact on people’s lives every single day, is not just a programme at AllLife, rather we have embedded this philosophy into our business DNA. We are a social impact firm in the truest sense, and we cannot operate profitably without having an immense positive impact on society. It is nice to realise that when we do tell our story, others take notice, and want to recognise the positive effect that we are having on South African society, along with a real and material impact on our clients’ lives”
Stephen Howard, Chief Executive, Business in the Community said: “The Responsible Business Awards give much needed visibility to organisations who are putting responsible behaviour at the heart of how they do business. The finalists are each playing their part to create a fairer society and more sustainable future by bringing to life the practical role that businesses can take to address some of our most pressing issues. We congratulate AllLife South Africa for being an inspirational example for others to learn from.”
All finalist companies will be celebrated through a series of Responsible Business Gala events taking place across the UK in June and sponsored by 2014 Responsible Business of the Year National Grid, National Grid.
The overall winners in each category will be announced in London at Business in the Community’s Annual Responsible Business Gala Dinner on 7 July 2015.
