“With the extended entry deadline of March 18 just days away, the National CSR Awards (NCSRA) are heading for a record number of entries,” reports NCSRA CEO Karen Sutton. “The web site is recording over 300 site visits per day, and over 75 companies having registered their interest or already entered—a 200% increase on the inaugural Awards last year.”
From the 24 categories available, four categories are open to international entries: Overall Excellence, Sustainable Community, Conservation and Sustainable Transport. Interest is coming in from 80 countries.
NCSRA have recently signed up as a sponsor Nottingham University Business School (NUBS) which offers the UK’s first MBA qualification in CSR. NUBS, along with several other Supporting Partners including WWF, Ethical Performance, 3BL Media, ICRS and IBE, are helping to drive entries to specific categories in their area of expertise.
CEO of NCSRA Karen Sutton says, “We have just released the first draft agenda of the Sustainability Conference that will take place during the day (12 May) and our experienced speaker line up should ensure we secure a sell-out. Our venue, The Crystal in Docklands, is 100% sustainable, the most sustainable event space in the world, so when guests arrive, they can leave their carbon footprint at the door!”
Any organisation wishing to enter the Awards should register here or email apply@nationalCSRawards.co.uk for more information; the deadline for entries is 18 March. The Sustainability Conference is now open for bookings and tickets can be booked here.
