Dentsu Aegis Network awarded ‘Big Tick’ in Business at the Community’s Responsible Business Awards

15 March 2014: Dentsu Aegis Network, the first truly global communications network for the digital age, has been recognised with a ‘Big Tick’ at the prestigious Responsible Business Awards 2014, run by the Business in the Community charity.

The Responsible Business Awards is the UK’s longest-running and most respected awards scheme championing businesses which are making a positive difference to society and the environment.

Dentsu Aegis Network was awarded in the Building Stronger Communities category, which aims to recognise partnerships between businesses and community organisations that successfully address a key social issue and make a lasting impact. Dentsu Aegis Network is recognised for its GlobalGivingTIME worldwide initiative in partnership with the UK-based charity, GlobalGiving.

Nigel Morris, Dentsu Aegis Network CEO Americas & EMEA, and Chair of the CSR Steering Group, said, “We’re proud to be recognised by Business in the Community for our efforts in working with local communities around the world. GlobalGivingTIME is a pioneering community platform that truly makes us, our charity partners and the communities we work in, different and better.”

Stephen Howard, Chief Executive, Business in the Community said, “All year round, responsible businesses across the UK are contributing towards more resilient communities, stimulating local economies, creating diverse, skilled and healthy workforces and addressing skills shortages - yet these activities rarely get attention. The Responsible Business Awards shine a much needed spotlight on the powerful impact of business. Each of the companies recognised are playing their part to build a new contract between business and society and a more sustainable future for us all. I congratulate Dentsu Aegis for its Big Tick, which is a powerful symbol of business doing more to bring about change.”
