Published:  27 April, 2017

JP Corry has been awarded the CORE Standard by Business in the Community Northern Ireland. This achievement recognises JP Corry as an accredited leader in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).

Following an in-depth examination of JP Corry’s CSR processes and policies, Business In the Community granted JP Corry with the CORE certification.

Ciaran McConnell, JP Corry managing director, said: “Participating in CORE has been a very valuable process for the business. While we have always been proactive with our CSR efforts within our local communities, CORE has provided us with a framework to identify what we are doing well, and highlight areas where we can improve.

“This process has enabled us to build an extensive portfolio emphasizing our CSR initiatives and ultimately demonstrating our commitment to CSR practice to our staff, customers and suppliers”

During the CORE process, JP Corry established its own CSR Committee, which includes staff from various departments across the business. The Committee has been developed to adopt a strategic approach to CSR practice, whilst encouraging and driving new CSR initiatives.

Following this accreditation, JP Corry has been shortlisted for the Building Stronger Communities award at Business in the Community Northern Ireland’s Responsible Business Awards. Taking place at the Belfast Waterfront on 1 June 2017, these awards recognise Northern Ireland businesses for their contribution to their people, planet and places where they operate.
