10th February 2015 - Press Release

Port of Dover recognised for its work with the Community



The Port of Dover has been shortlisted in the Overall Excellence in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) category for this year's National Corporate Social Responsibility Awards.

The inaugural National CSR Awards, founded by Business@Brooklands is designed to celebrate business excellence and innovation within the area of CSR. It is the only one of its kind in the UK - encompassing all areas of CSR including: Sustainability, Carbon Footprinting, Community Development, Staff Welfare and Education.

CSR is at the very core of the Port’s vision and commitment to be the best port in the world for the benefit of its customers and community. 

Tim Waggott, Chief Executive, Port of Dover, said:

“I am delighted that our work with the local community has been noticed by the judges. Receiving an award recognising our company’s CSR initiatives would be a fantastic prize for all Port of Dover colleagues. Being shortlisted alongside such great companies as Marks & Spencer, E.ON and Manchester Airports Group is a great honour and shows how well Dover is regarded. We wish all of them best of luck in the award category and every success with their initiatives.”

“With the recent launch of the Port of Dover Community Fund we are very excited to have this opportunity to make an even greater contribution to Dover, its community and the local area.”

ENDS
