Speaking at the Awards ceremony, Ian Talbot, Chief Executive of Chambers Ireland said,
“Congratulations to An Post and the winners of the award categories, whom we recognise for their achievements.
Our awards reveal how the benchmark of quality among projects implemented by businesses across Ireland continues to be driven upwards.
The programmes and activities developed by businesses of all sizes continues to evolve every year and have become ever more proactive at addressing current sustainability challenges. Tonight’s winning projects have also demonstrated engagement with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, in everything they do.”
This nineteenth annual Awards ceremony was kindly sponsored by BAM Ireland. The Department of Rural and Community Development sponsored the Social Enterprise category and One4all sponsored the Excellence in Workplace Award.
Each winner was presented with a specially commissioned trophy designed by Waterford Crystal.
Commenting on the Awards, Alasdair Henderson, Executive Director, BAM Ireland said. ‘As a purpose-led business, we want to enhance people’s lives, ensuring that our activities leave a lasting legacy for local communities. It gives us great pleasure to once again sponsor these awards. Congratulations to all the inspirational participants and particularly to An Post on their dedication to work collaboratively to find innovative and sustainable ways to positively impact people and planet.’
In addition, Chambers Ireland presented a Special Recognition Award to the Civil Service Covid Business Support Teams, reflecting the enormous contribution made to business sustainability by those civil servants charged with delivering the various Government Covid supports to businesses on a timely and efficient basis. Ian Talbot, Chief Executive of Chambers Ireland said “The work of these teams has contributed enormously to the remarkable economic recovery since the end of the worst of the Covid crisis. Without timely and effective deployment of the various Government schemes, companies would have failed in large numbers from a lack of cash flow and countless employees left without any income. We are delighted to take this opportunity to recognise their unprecedented work and commitment.”
