Cause4 named as National Champion for the UK in the European Business Awards

6th January, 2015

Cause4 will be competing for the title of ‘National Public Champion’ in this year’s European Business Awards, sponsored by RSM International, as the public vote opens for the first time.

The European Business Awards is an independent Awards programme designed to recognise and promote excellence, best practice and innovation in the European business community.

As a National Champion for the UK, Cause4 will now go on to compete in the next stage of the competition resulting in successful organisations being short-listed for Ruban D’Honneur status.

This first phase is the online public voting which is open from 6th January 2015 to 24th February 2015. Cause4’s video submission for this year’s National Champions can be found on the European Business Awards website.

Michelle Wright, CEO of Cause4, says: “It’s great to be part of the voting for this year’s European Business Awards. After a busy year which has seen us develop our work internationally and across Europe, we’re delighted to have a chance to compete with other European businesses as part of these enterprise awards.”

Adrian Tripp, CEO of the European Business Awards said: “This year’s videos show some of the most successful and sustainable companies in Europe and we hope that anyone interested in business will take some time to watch the videos, either from their own country or from other countries, and then cast their vote.”

Separately the video entries from all National Champions representing 33 countries across Europe will be reviewed and scored by the European Business Awards’ panel of judges and on 10th February 2015, the Chairman of Judges will announce the 100 Ruban d’Honneur recipients.
