Rory Stewart MP has nominated Out of Eden as his 2018 Responsible Business Champion, praising the company’s commitment to sustainability and its sensitivity to the environmental impact of its operations.
Each year MPs are invited by the All Party Parliamentary Corporate Responsibility Group (APPCRG) to select an outstanding local business which, due to its work in their constituency, deserves to be recognised as a Responsible Business Champion.
This year’s nomination criteria meant that Rory was looking for a company which supports the local community, invests in healthy workplaces, offers apprenticeships and training, works to reduce its environmental impact and cooperates with suppliers and SMEs to support responsible business practices.
A Parliamentary judging panel will now consider Out of Eden’s nomination against the APPCRG’s criteria and select one company as the winner of the National Responsible Business Champion Award. The winner will receive their award from the Corporate Responsibility Minister, Andrew Griffiths MP, on 4 July.
Commenting on the nomination Rory said, “Out of Eden is a very worthy nominee for the Responsible Business Champion Award. The company operates at the heart of its community, supporting local, family run businesses and is also fiercely loyal to its customers and its employees. Out of Eden cares about sustainability and the environment and I wish it the best of luck.”
