Novus putting construction on the responsible business map

BITC winners, Novus Property Solutions

 The responsible business approach of maintenance and refurbishment specialist Novus Property Solutions has once again been recognised on the national stage.

After being named Santander Responsible Small Business of the Year in 2014, Novus has been re-accredited by Business in the Community (BITC) thanks to its continued positive impact over the past 12 months.

The Responsible Business Awards are the most prestigious and respected awards championing responsible business in the UK and abroad. They celebrate inspirational companies like Novus that are taking action to address social and environmental issues and transform their communities.  The awards celebrate the variety of ways that businesses are making a difference – from investing in the wellbeing of employees, to helping young people develop skills, or supporting small businesses to grow.

Every year as part of the Responsible Business Awards, the BITC re-accredits a number of companies who are able to demonstrate the continual positive impact of a programme that has received an award accolade.

Corporate and social responsibility has become integral to the way Novus operates. The company particularly impressed the judges with its ambitious Changing Lives scheme, launched earlier this year, which will see staff from across the business actively working to make a difference to 10,000 lives.

Stephen Howard, chief executive, Business in the Community said “The Responsible Business Awards celebrate the very best of business and raise awareness of business as a powerful force for good. We congratulate Novus for playing its part in creating a fairer society and more sustainable future and demonstrating that business has a greater purpose then simply generating profit.”
