We are proud to share that Neighbourly has been announced as the winner in the Best Leadership in Technology category in the Management Today Business Awards. The awards were created to recognise the role of leadership in driving business performance, celebrating organisations who are defined by a clarity of purpose and dedication to doing business the right way.
"This is an organisation that operates with strong purpose and will play an increasingly important role in the cost of living crisis"
Management Today highlighted that between Neighbourly's beginnings and the start of 2023, the platform successfully distributed over 118 million meals worth of surplus food, 113,000 volunteer hours, £22 million in funds and 1,800 tonnes of products, saving 185 thousand tonnes of CO2 across the UK and Ireland. Neighbourly has also helped more than 7,000 local charities and community causes in the past year - who in turn support a combined total of over 2.6 million people every week.
Judge’s feedback highlighted: “This is an organisation that operates with strong purpose and will play an increasingly important role in the cost of living crisis. It’s impressive how it has garnered the support of big players such as Aldi, Lidl and M&S to its cause. A worthy winner and I like the maximisation of existing infrastructure and B Corp status which takes a lot of effort - solid”.
Commenting on the awards, Neighbourly COO Zoe Colosimo said: “I am proud of every step in the Neighbourly journey, but particularly this one for our fantastic team - it’s a testament to the outstanding work and effort of everyone, in what has been a significant year for the business.
”Thank you to Management Today and the board of judges for celebrating the role of business and technology in driving positive social change and creating impact. We look forward to another year of helping businesses contribute to the economic and social wellbeing of the communities in which they operate.”
