Other prizes were awarded to companies such as the shoe producer ECCO, the supermarket chain Fakta and Restaurant Dronning Louise.

“CSR is increasingly becoming an important part of work for the most visionary leaders and the companies they run,” said Maria Bøge, the head of CSR Fonden. “But the many strong results are promoted all to rarely.”

“So it’s important that this work is focussed on and that we celebrate the good examples like we do here at the CSR Awards.”

The business and growth minister, Troels Lund Poulsen, Prince Joachim and actress Connie Nielsen were among the dignitaries at hand to present the winners with their prizes.
