The borough’s airport has been recognised with a prestigious business award for its positive impact on the community.
London City Airport was nominated by Newham’s MP Stephen Timms for the Responsible Business Champion prize, who said it was an “exemplar of corporate responsibility”.
The award, granted by the All-Party Parliamentary Corporate Responsibility Group (APCRG), is granted by MPs to identify an outstanding local business, based on criteria including the company’s overall impact on its constituency.
The airport will now be pitted against other businesses for a national version of the award, the winner of which will be announced at a reception hosted by House of Commons speaker John Bercow on July 15th.
“I am delighted that London City Airport has been nominated by the All-Party Parliamentary Corporate Responsibility Group,” said Mr Timms.
“It is an exemplar of corporate responsibility and I am always impressed by the wide range of initiatives the airport supports. I particularly welcome the Airport’s consistent commitment to supporting local residents into employment.”
