Unipart Group, one of Europe’s leading private manufacturing, logistics and consultancy companies, is one of only a handful of companies to receive a five star rating in the Business in the Community 2015 Corporate Responsibility Index - the UK’s leading benchmark of responsible business.
Today’s announcement of the 2015 CR Index has been timed to coincide with Responsible Business Week (20-26 April 2015), an annual initiative to increase awareness of the positive contribution of business in society.
The CR Index is a robust benchmarking tool which assesses companies against a diverse range of factors. It provides businesses with a robust framework to systematically measure, manage and integrate responsible business practice into mainstream business strategy and operations.
Stephen Howard, Chief Executive, Business in the Community said: “The 2015 CR Index shows us that we are moving in the right direction and companies are now increasingly integrating responsible business practice into decision making right across the business.
“To truly change business culture, companies need to engage their people to embrace a different way of doing business with responsible values at the core. I congratulate Unipart for achieving its ranking and look forward to working together.”
Commenting on the award, Unipart Chairman and Group Chief Executive John Neill said: “We are delighted to have achieved this recognition. It provides us with another opportunity to thank and pay tribute to thousands of people throughout Unipart who strive every day to live by the company’s principles and philosophy and build its culture."
