Databarracks Longlisted for the 2017 Responsible Business Awards
Business continuity and disaster recovery service provider, Databarracks, from London is celebrating after being Longlisted for the UK's longest running and most prestigious awards programme, championing responsible business in the UK and abroad
The awards champion the most inspiring businesses who are making a difference by taking action to build more inclusive workplaces, stronger communities and tackle our biggest environmental challenges.
Today's announcement coincides with Responsible Business Week (23-27 April) an annual initiative aimed at increasing awareness of the positive contribution of businesses to society. Databarracks has been Longtlisted for the Barclays Developing Resilience Award.
Commenting Peter Groucutt, managing director of Databarracks said: "We're incredibly proud to be on the Longlist for a Responsible Business Award. As the business environment becomes more complex, resiliency continues to grow in importance. SME's play a vital role in the economy - both from the direct contribution they make and the supply-chain they support. The Barclays Resilience Award is for businesses supporting SMEs to prepare for, respond to and recover from disruptive events, which in turn, benefits the community in which they operate. This resonates very strongly with our aims as a business to make continuity and resiliency available for all."
Chief Executive of Business in the Community, Amanda Mackenzie, said: "More than ever businesses are expected to play their part in creating the society we all want. We are proud of Databarracks who have been Longlisted for the Responsible Business Awards 2018 for their work in helping to build healthy communities with successful businesses at their heart."
The winners of all ten categories, including the Responsible Business of the Year will be announced at the Responsible Business Gala Dinner at the Royal Albert Hall on 3 July, in front of 1,200 business leaders. The headline sponsors of the 2018 Responsible Business Awards are Barclays, Fujitsu, Unilever, Unipart, UPS, and Hogan Lovells as well as Anglian Water, the winner of the 2017 Responsible Business of the Year.
