The Red Rose Awards 2024 winners have been announced
Red Rose Awards 2024

Environmental, Social and Governance Award

This award recognises businesses with a stand-out ESG agenda. It may already be implemented as a strategy, or it may be a work in-progress.

Category criteria

Lancashire businesses continue to face and meet new challenges while servicing customer needs and securing new opportunities.

Every business has a story to tell, and these are the stories Red Rose Awards wants to hear and share.

Tell us yours!

 

The winner of this award will have a dedication to environment, social and governance, and you will be able to show how it fits within your strategy.

You will likely see that ESG has business benefits too (which may include boosts to recruitment, retention or PR), and judges will want to know, but the motivation should include making Lancashire a better place to live and work.

On Environment, tell us about activities to reduce carbon; on Social, tell us how you are supporting charities or communities and on Governance, tell us how you do business, how the business is led and how you use your ‘values’.

Notes: 

  • Enter this award if your business has a commitment to ESG and can demonstrate the impact your activities have made
  • If your business allows staff time and resources to support ESG activity, tell our judges
  • If you wish to share your journey and commitment to net-zero, this category is for you
  •  Businesses of any shape or size and in any sector can enter this award

    If your business can demonstrate internal activities around staff wellbeing, support and skills, you should also consider entering the Employer of the Year Award
