High Peak MP Ruth George has been asked to nominate an outstanding High Peak business to a parliamentary Responsible Business Scheme.

The Labour MP was asked by the All-Party Parliamentary Corporate Responsibility Group (APCRG) to nominate a business that has had a positive impact on a High Peak community.

Mrs George’s nomination will be invited to the Responsible Business Champions reception in Parliament on November 22 and be considered for the National Responsible Business Champion Award.

The award celebrates the work of businesses that provide support to their local communities, offer apprenticeships and training to all as well as promoting diversity and inclusion in the workplace.

Previous winners include large companies such as Manchester Airport and small local companies such as artisan bread makers Specialty Breads.

Speaking about the nomination, Ruth said: “High Peak is a place where business and community work closely and we have many wonderful examples of businesses who have achieved great success while benefiting the communities of their customers and staff.

“There are so many great examples of responsible business in High Peak, I know it will be difficult to choose just one!”

The MP is asking local businesses to write to her by 5pm on Monday, October 2, in less than 1,000 words to set out why they would make a worthy winner of the National Award.

Her selection will receive a High Peak Responsible Business Champion award and be entered in the national competition.
