LiveWest celebrates Responsible Business Week 2018

23 April 2018

We are celebrating Responsible Business Week (23-27 April) with a number of events throughout the south west. The week is an annual awareness campaign which celebrates the brighter side of the business by sharing great responsible business success stories.

LiveWest believes there is an important story to be told. Behind every organisation are real people, making a difference, improving society and changing lives, 365 days a year. Every organisation has the opportunity and responsibility to make a difference, sector by sector, place by place to improve society, change lives and shape a positive future.

Paul Marshall, LiveWest Director of Community Engagement said: “Responsible Business Week sets out to champion the work of companies leading positive social, environmental and economic change in communities across the UK. At our heart, we are a people business. We continue to invest in our communities across the south west, creating opportunities for our customers to be active in their local community, achieve their aspirations and access our services. Alongside our customers, we are playing our part in creating and maintaining great places to live. We continue to invest in our existing housing stock while developing 15,000 new homes over the next 10 years. We support, listen and learn from our customers, offering choice, flexibility, and value for money that every new start deserves.”

This year, the theme of Responsible Business Week focuses on shining a spotlight on businesses who are working to make a difference by inspiring pride, protecting resources and engaging people in the places where they live and work. During the Week Business in the Community will showcase inspiring stories and convene a range of experts to ensure all businesses are equipped with the tools and knowledge to drive solutions, at speed and scale.

Amanda McKenzie, CEO Business in the Community commented: “Responsible Business Week is an opportunity for businesses to shout about their successes and inspire each other to do even more. More than ever business is being expected to play its part in creating the society we all want. We are proud of LiveWest who are showcasing some of the most ambitious, exciting and innovative responsible business ideas from across the UK”.
