FREE gets recognition from the Responsible Business Awards

We are very proud to announce that Calor’s rural fuel poverty initiative, FREE (Future of Rural Energy) was re-accredited with a ‘Big Tick’ as part of the prestigious Responsible Business Awards 2015, which are run by the charity Business In The Community (BITC).

A ‘Big Tick’ is a leading endorsement of responsible business, and companies are awarded for initiatives tackling a range of issues: from stimulating local or rural communities, building long-term partnerships with schools, to embedding environmental sustainability into how products and services are used by customers.

Calor’s FREE was first recognised in the Responsible Business Awards back in 2014, winning a ‘Big Tick’ and being one of the four companies to have been shortlisted to win the ‘Dairy Crest Rural Action Award’; a category which identifies businesses that are helping to address issues faced by rural communities in order to maintain a vibrant, sustainable rural economy.

In 2015, we re-accredited our entry, meaning Calor gets to keep the Big Tick planter for another year.Calor’s Corporate Affairs Manager, Holly Sims, received the award at The West Midland’s Responsible Business Gala Dinner on Tuesday 9 June 2015 at Aston Villa Football Club.
