We have answered some of the most frequently asked questions: CSR Awards FAQs
In 2016 we have introduced the guest category Excellence in Supporting Youth Employment. High levels of youth unemployment remains one of the biggest challenges facing Irish and EU recovery and businesses are to the fore in working to tackle this challenge. This category is open to companies that are actively engaging in helping young people to enter the workforce.
While this year we have replaced the International CSR category with the above guest category, please be aware that should your company be involved in a CSR initiative which takes place outside of the Republic of Ireland, you can still enter the CSR Awards under a category which fits with the project. For example, if the CSR initiative works on environmental causes in another country, you should consider entering the Environment category. Also, the Communications and SME category are not specific to a particular CSR theme and can be applied for by companies working on a braod range of CSR initiatives.
The categories for the 2016 awards are as follows:
• Excellence in Community - Partnership with Charity
• Excellence in Community - Volunteering
• Excellence in Community - Community Programme
• Excellence in Environment
• Excellence in Marketplace
• Excellence in Workplace
• Excellence in CSR Communication
• Excellence in Supporting Youth Employment
• Excellence in CSR by an SME
• Outstanding Achievement in CSR (all shortlisted candidates are automatically eligible for this award)
