Ringway, one of the UK’s leading service providers of highway maintenance and related services, is delighted to announce that it has achieve the Bronze band in Business in the Community’s (BITC’s) 2009 Corporate Responsibility Index (CRI), the UK’s leading voluntary benchmark of corporate responsibility.
The CRI helps companies to integrate and improve corporate responsibility throughout their business operations, by providing a systematic approach to managing, measuring and reporting on business impacts in society and on the environment.
Achieving Bronze means that Ringway has demonstrated that it has developed its business model giving clarity of its mission, values and corporate responsibility principles, with clear roles and responsibilities being allocated right across its business. The bronze performance band is also an indication that Ringway is making good progress in its wider environmental and social data collation and public reporting.
Ringway Managing Director, Scott Wardrop said: "This is the first time we have entered the CR index so I am delighted to receive the recognition via a bronze award. We are committed to corporate responsibility, this is demonstrated through our field activities and our desire to share our progress through our annual CSR report."
Stephen Howard, Chief Executive, Business in the Community said: "I congratulate Ringway on achieving Bronze in the 2009 Business in the Community Corporate Responsibility Index. Companies participating in the Index may be at different stages of their responsible business journey, but they have all demonstrated that they take these issues seriously and are leading the field in ensuring this is just how they do business. We believe this is imperative if we are to strengthen and stabilise our businesses and economy."
The full results of the 2009 CRI, including commentary and analysis, are published in the Financial Times Responsible Business supplement today (7 June 2010).
