We are delighted to announce that Our Parklife has been awarded a Highly Commended Award in the The Experian Award for Building Stronger Communities category at the Business at the Community Responsible Business Awards Gala last night. The Award recognises Our Parklife’s commitment to being a catalyst for local regeneration in East London; connecting local communities and people to the Park through employment, volunteering, training and service provision.
Now in their 20th year, the Awards champion the most inspiring businesses who are making a difference by taking action to build more inclusive workplaces, stronger communities and tackle our biggest environmental challenges.
Wilfrid Petrie, CEO, ENGIE UK said: “The Our Parklife model of private, SME and third sector partnership was a key pilot project for ENGIE to trial a new way of working that not only brings meaningful benefits to the business but also real social value to the communities in which ENGIE and our customers operate. The success of the initiative has seen us look to replicate the model in a number of communities across the UK as we work towards leaving a lasting positive social and environmental legacy.”
