Hyundai has been awarded one ‘Gold’ and two ‘Bronze’ awards at the International Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Awards at an exclusive presentation ceremony at The Crystal in London.
Hyundai’s Skills for the Future initiative was recognised with a gold award in the category of ‘Corporate Citizenship’, while its work with charities Street League and Crisis earned it bronze awards in the categories of ‘Community Commitment’ and ‘Charity Support’.
The International CSR Excellence Awards identify Britain’s most caring companies, highlighting CSR best practice, and are contested by over 200 of the most well respected brands in the UK. Winning recipients were presented with their awards by Maria Georgiou of Water Aid, the International charity that transforms lives by improving access to safe water, hygiene and sanitation.
Tony Whitehorn, president and CEO, Hyundai Motor UK, said: “It is a privilege to have received these awards for our CSR programmes here in the UK.
"The concept of ‘corporate social responsibility’ is one that defines today’s business environment, as the emphasis on the social roles and functions of companies is increasing. Hyundai Motor Company prides itself on being a very active corporate citizen around the globe and wants to be considered as a ‘caring’ brand.
"We hope that the work that we do here in the UK does in some small way give something back to the broader community that we work within.”
