We have been announced as a top community investor in the 2017 GivX Community Value Awards.
Leading a cohort of companies who are pioneering best practice in Corporate Responsibility, we were commended for our particularly strong contribution of community donations and skilled volunteering value; where we ranked among the top three companies.
Corporate Responsibility Manager Graham Frankland said: “We are delighted to be in the top ten companies in the GivX 25. It’s really important for us to measure the impact of our community investment and benchmark against others.
“None of this would have been possible without the help and support of hundreds of employees from across National Grid. I’d like to thank everyone for their efforts; whether they have been volunteering, fundraising or supporting local community groups, it is a tremendous team effort.
“This type of work supports our purpose and helps us to deliver our vision of exceeding the expectations of our communities.”
Other companies that feature in the GivX 25 include John Lewis, Cisco, HSBC, London Stock Exchange and ITV.
Ben Darlington from Benefacto, who run GivX, said: “Our inaugural awards were to celebrate an innovative group of companies, who by pioneering the framework are committing to transparently and effectively reporting their change-making community investment programmes.”
