The International CSR Excellence Awards recognise ‘companies that have a heart’ and the team at Edmonton Green Shopping Centre, in North London, were awarded with two hearts at the ceremony held last month.
The first of the awards they received was a bronze award in the ‘Community Commitment’ category awarded for the centres ‘You Care, We Care, Edmonton Cares’ initiative. This scheme is a unique charitable program of fundraising activities launched during the pandemic, with each project being planned and delivered at a local level in conjunction with a partner and driven by local needs and concerns.
The second award was in the ‘Charitable Giving’ category, where they also received a bronze award for their support of The Salvation Army with the charity’s local Present Appeal – helping over 250 families in the first year, and 320 families in the second year.
Edmonton Green Shopping Centre competed against more than 500 other nominations in the International CSR Excellence Awards 2022, and they were presented with their trophies and certificates at a glittering presentation ceremony at the world-famous Waldorf, London on 30th May.
This double win was not the only recognition that Edmonton Green Shopping Centre received from the International CSR Excellence Awards. They also received the elite status of a ‘CSR World Leader’ for CSR best practice.
This accolade is a huge achievement for the shopping centre and great acknowledgement of its CSR strategy. Having CSR World Leader status means their winning paper will be published in The CSR World Leaders Book (the leading international work of reference on social responsibility best practice) so that others around the world can follow their lead and learn from their achievement.
This will also entitle them to represent their country in the CSR sector of the Green World Awards that will be presented in the United States of America next year.
Sabri Marsaoui, asset director said: “We are absolutely thrilled to have received two CSR Awards – and the status of CSR World Leader is such an honour. We are extremely proud of our commitment to our social responsibility and to be recognised in this way is simply fantastic.”
