Quote from Kit Chapman, Executive Chair of Arts Taunton:
The creative industries are of enormous importance in the UK and are characterised by quality and innovation. So I am particularly delighted that ArtsTaunton is sponsoring this important award for the first time this year. Not least because Taunton Deane has a gifted and vibrant arts community which contributes so much to the life and wellbeing of the district.
Viridor was proud to be the winners of the CSR Award 2017 for our community partnership with the Somerset Wildlife Trust and is delighted to be sponsoring the Community Engagement Award this year. As one of the UK’s largest recycling and renewable energy companies, with roots in Taunton, our support for this award reflects the importance of making a positive contribution to the local community. Community engagement is an important part of what we do and drives our performance. See our Sustainability Report 2017 for more information about our work within the community www.virdor.co.uk/

“We were so pleased to have won the Creative Industries category at the Taunton Deane Business Awards last year. Our partnership work with Job Centre Plus and Open Door Taunton enabled our students completing their work experience, to develop a deep understanding of homeless people’s plights, and the knowledge and understanding that they gained equipped them when going out into the world and when embarking on their careers. We are excited to be sponsoring a category this year – the Manufacturing and Producers Award, we know how much the work that the awards celebrate, positively benefit our local community and economy.”
