A great day for 23 Public Service Providers in Europe

That is what Hans-Joachim Reck, President of CEEP, declared during the awarding ceremony of the CEEP-CSR label for the year 2012-2013. The awarding ceremony took place in the European Parliament, under the patronage of MEP Marc Tarabella. “These awarded enterprises proved their commitment to very high CSR standards and demonstrated that they do more than providing public services: they take great care of the social and environmental impact of their activities”, added Mr Reck.

To further support the development of CSR by public service providers throughout Europe, CEEP started in 2008 the CEEP-CSR Label, the only European CSR Label for Public Services.

Since then, this label has become recognised as a competitive advantage in tendering processes and as a tool to raise the corporate image of the awarded before public authorities as well as citizens.

“The awarding ceremony is an excellent occasion to celebrate the best of the enterprises having gone through a very strict evaluation process, based on a self-assessment, an evaluation by external experts and the selection by a highly qualified jury. This process is the proof that the voluntary approach to CSR, including when it comes to social and environmental criteria in public procurement, is the best way to achieve concrete results”, declared Valeria Ronzitti, General Secretary of CEEP.

This year, 4 enterprises received a “special award” for their high results scored in the evaluation by external experts as well as for the innovativeness of their practices, as evaluated by the jury:
