Firms from Birmingham and beyond have been recognised for their efforts to maximise social value from the contracts awarded to them by the city council.

The inaugural Birmingham Business Charter for Social Responsibility awards presentation ceremony was staged at the Council House today (February 11).

A total of 17 organisations were presented with certificates in recognition of having had accepted action plans detailing how they will deliver benefits to Birmingham through the charter’s six principles. The creation of the charter was a key pledge made by the council’s incoming administration in the summer of 2012.

Cllr Stewart Stacey, Cabinet Member for Commissioning, Contracting and Improvement at Birmingham City Council, said: “The Birmingham Business Charter for Social Responsibility is one way of ensuring that as much of the council’s £1billion spent on contracts as possible is used to get extra value for Brummies but it is also about setting out a new ‘way of doing business’ in our city as a whole.

“So, I am delighted that we are now at the stage where we can recognise the organisations that are setting a standard for ethical business practices for all other companies to aspire to, whether contractors or not.”
