LSI recognised at this years Business In The Community Responsible Business Awards.

LSI’s commitment to community has been recognised at this years Business In The Community Responsible Business Awards with the reaccreditation of a BITC Big Tick.

Business In The Community commented that the Practice had successfully demonstrated continual and positive impact through a programme from which the Practice initially received the  accolade.

The Responsible Business Awards is the most prestigious and respected awards championing responsible business in the UK and abroad. It celebrates inspirational companies that are taking action to address social and environmental issues and transform their communities.

The announcement of the 2015 Responsible Business Awards shortlist coincides with Responsible Business Week (20-26 April 2015) an annual initiative to increase awareness of the positive contribution of business in society.

The Responsible Business Awards celebrate the variety of ways that businesses are making a difference – from investing in the wellbeing of employees, to helping young people develop skills, or supporting small businesses to grow. 145 companies have been shortlisted in total across the UK, across the 13 award categories.

Stephen Howard, Chief Executive, Business in the Community said “The Responsible Business Awards celebrate the very best of business, so it is fitting to be announcing the shortlist today as part of Responsible Business Week, which raises awareness of business as a powerful force for good. We congratulate LSI Architects for playing its part in creating a fairer society and more sustainable future.”

On LSI’s commitment to community, Partner Ben Goode said “At LSI Architects, we always aim to do the right thing. This approach has benefited us as a business, and because of these benefits we have been able to sustain our commitment to responsible business throughout a difficult economic period.

However, it is not just the benefits that drive our responsible business approach. We do it because it is so important to us to have a business that we can be proud of, that achieves things that we can be proud of, and because we believe it is the right thing to do. The benefits achieved mean that not only can we sustain what we do in the community and for our employees, but we are also able to achieve more to the benefit of others.”
