EPS selected as National Champion in European Business Awards
About the Award
For the second year running, EPS Group will represent Ireland as National Champion in the 2014/2015 European Business Awards (EBA) programme under the Environmental and Corporate Social Responsibility category.
EPS has been chosen by a panel of international judges as one of the best examples of an organisation that puts sustainability at the heart of its operations. EPS was shortlisted alongside 31 other Irish companies including Dawn Meats, ESB International, Mc Afee, Morgan McKinley, PayPal and others.
The European Business Awards, now in its 8th year, engaged with over 24,000 business from 33 European countries this year and 709 companies from across Europe have been named today as National Champions; going through to the second phase of the competition. In the next round of the competition, EPS will compete to achieve Ruban d’Honneur status.
To advance in the competition, all National Champions have to submit a video entry for viewing and assessment by a judging panel. The panel of judges, made up of Europe-wide business leaders, academics and entrepreneurs, will view the National Champions’ videos, and award the best of this group the coveted ‘Ruban d’Honneur’ status. Ruban d’Honneur recipients will then go on to the grand final in 2015. All of the National Champions will also take part in a public vote to decide ‘Public Champions’ for each country. Last year over 93,000 votes were cast, and over 400,000 people visited the EBA website during the competition.
In last year’s EBA awards, EPS received the internationally prestigious Ruban d’Honneur award at a gala event which took place in Athens. The award was in recognition of the Group’s Environmental and Corporate Sustainability strategy, which has seen the business reduce and minimise the impact of its activities within its workplace, market, environment and community.
