Communities & Reputation Award Winner 2022

Sponsored by CPI

The Communities & Reputation Award, sponsored by CPI, will be given to the NEPIC member company that can clearly demonstrate an outstanding communities and reputation campaign across any aspect of social responsibility.

Responsible, caring companies are in a privileged position to help others and in turn be at the heart of the local community. In an ever-challenging business environment, this award will honour the NEPIC member that is making change for the better and is a realistic force for good.

The winning organisation will receive £2,000 to donate to a local school of their choice to fund a STEM‑related project and further develop lasting industry‑academia links.

Winner: WSP
Beneficiary School: Walker Riverside Academy
