The DAA’s long term good neighbours policy has been formally recognised in the Chambers Ireland Corporate Social Responsibility Awards.
The company has been shortlisted for three awards for its community, charity and environmental work.
The awards were established in 2004 to recognise the work carried out by Irish and multinational companies to improve the lives of their employees and to enhance the civic environment in which they operate.
The DAA submitted entries in three of the nine categories and was shortlisted in all three.
The three categories are Excellence in Community - Partnership with Charity, Excellence in Community - Community Programme and Excellence in Environment.
“We are delighted to have been shortlisted for our work with the local community and charity work. We are shortlisted with companies such as Eirgrid, Ulster Bank, Bord na Mona and Permanent TSB, and Matheson Ormsby Prentice,” said Siobhán Moore, External Communications Manager with responsibility for the local community and DAA Charity Chairperson.
“This kind of recognition is a true endorsement of the DAA’s commitment and dedication to our nearest neighbours and our Charity of the Year.”
Health and Safety, Security and Environment Manager Mary Coveney said it was great to see sustainability initiatives being recognised and put on this shortlist.
“The Airports Carbon Accreditation is a challenging new initiative driven by the airports industry to show how we will play our part of reducing our carbon footprint and helping us to play our part in addressing the effects of Climate Change,” she said.
“The fact that we have three programmes short-listed shows that as a company and as staff we are exhibiting the kind of leadership qualities that will help the company to grow and develop further in the coming years. It is a great endorsement of what we are doing.”
The award winners will be announced at an event on September 27 next.
