On 6 September 2016, Inreal group was announced to be the National Winner in the prestigious competition of the European Business Awards, in the category of Environmental and Corporate Sustainability, where the group's project "Dangės krantinės" was presented. The group has been awarded the title of national champion two years in a row now. More than 33 000 companies or their groups from 34 different European countries participated in the 10th competition of the European Business Awards. Companies who received the title of a National Champion were granted the right to participate in the second stage of the contest in order to win the main award - honorary ribbons Ruban d’Honneur.
"The fact that Inreal group has been awarded the National Champion title two years in a row shows that we have chosen the right approach to sustainable development ", – states Gediminas Pruskus, Director of UAB "Inreal valdymas". According to him, "Dangės krantinės" is the project that clearly shows how business contribution to the country's cultural and historical heritage can be evaluated not only by the judges of the competition, but by the society as well.
Adrian Tripp, CEO of the European Business Awards said: “Congratulations to Inreal group who have been selected to represent their country as National Champions. They are central to the success of Europe’s strong business community, and have shown the core principles we look for of innovation, ethics and success.”
The next round requires the National Champions to make a presentation video, telling their unique story and explaining their business success. The Awards’ independent judges will award the best of this group the ‘Ruban d’Honneur’ status and the selected companies will then go on to the Gala Final in 2017.
Separately, in a two stage public vote, the videos will be hosted on the European Business Awards website, and the company who receives the most votes in their country will become the ‘National Public Champion’. Last year over 227,000 votes were cast as companies were supported globally by their clients, staff and peers, as well as the general public.
Lead sponsor RSM, the sixth largest network of independent audit, tax and consulting firms worldwide has supported the European Business Awards since its inception. The Awards’ core purpose is to support the development of a stronger and more successful business community throughout Europe. Additional sponsors and partners of the Awards include UK Trade and Investment, ELITE and PR Newswire.
In the 2015/16 competition, all EU member markets were represented plus Turkey, Norway, Switzerland, Serbia and the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia. Their combined revenue exceeded €1.2 trillion employing over 2.5 million people.
