The National CSR Awards

The National CSR Awards were hosted at the Crystal for the first time on the 12th May 2016. The event rewarded a range of businesses for their commitment to social responsibility and sustainability.


CSR Awards 2016

On the 12th May the Crystal hosted the second National CSR Conference Awards. The Crystal welcomed over 270 guests and a dynamic and varied group of guest speakers. The event aimed to recognise and reward organisations of all sizes for their commitment to their community and to sustainability. The days conference, held in the auditorium, provided conversation on ‘social responsibility and sustainability’ with interactive panel discussions, including participation from the Crystal’s very own Head of Urban Development, Martin Powell.

After the days debates the Crystal welcomed more guests to the evening awards ceremony, giving praise to everything from small grass root movements to large corporate organisations. Guests enjoyed a glamorous standing reception in the large lobby area ‘the Street’ with a fully sustainable pescatarian canapés and bowl food menu.


“The Crystal is the very best location for the National CSR Awards as it represents exactly what the event is all about. Being the most sustainable event space in the world, means it’s a place where we can dare to have the conversations about the importance of ethical business practices.”

Karen Sutton CEO at National CSR Awards
