Today in Milan, 24 public services providers were awarded the CEEP-CSR Label for their groundbreaking CSR commitments and practices. “This label is a demonstration that those public services’ providers do more than fulfilling their services. They are particularly efficient and effective when it comes to positively impacting the social and environmental aspects of society”, explained CEEP General Secretary, Valeria Ronzitti.
The CEEP-CSR Label Awarding Ceremony took place in the context of the Italian Presidency of the European Council of the European Union which attaches particular importance to Corporate Social Responsibility.
This 2014 edition has especially reflected the ever-growing importance of the label since new European rules on public procurement have emphasized the positive impact of labels in tendering processes.
This year, 74 enterprises started the evaluation with an online self-assessment tool. Experts from Berenschot ranked the enterprises that succeeded the self-assessment, based on criteria derived from international indications such as environment, social impact, staff or relation with external stakeholders.
Since 2008, the CEEP-CSR Label has contributed to raising the corporate image of the awarded enterprises and increasing their chances in tendering processes. Since its creation, more than 100 enterprises have received this recognition after a thorough evaluation process.

- Berliner Verkehrsbetriebe (BVG)
