This award, sponsored by MAS, will be presented to an organisation that is consistently improving people’s lives through its day to day business practices.
Good businesses operate with a conscience, making sure people involved in or affected by their activities are better off than they would be otherwise. They bring about positive outcomes for the environment and economy. They create change for good for the people and planet around them.
This may be through products or services, in-house wellbeing policies, supply chains, procurement, location, investment or through business models. The people impacted could include employees, local communities and the wider population.
This award will be presented to an organisation that is deliberately and consistently improving people’s lives through its day to day business practices. Social good is integrated throughout the whole organisation.

We asked MAS what inspired them to sponsor the Sustainable Business Awards:
“Like insurance, sustainability is all about long-term thinking. What can we do in the here and now that will help us all live better lives well into the future? Businesses have a huge part to play in achieving a more sustainable future thanks to the resources they can bring to bear on the problem – their people, their investments, their procurement and supply chains, their practices. As a mutual, we know what can be achieved when we work for the good of our communities, and we want to support like-minded businesses who are making a similar impact in their own industries.”
