Sustainability award for Co-op

HM Lord-Lieutenant of Hampshire paid a special visit to Southern Co-op to present the Queen’s Awards for Enterprise.

Colleagues and business partners gathered for the ceremony where they were presented with the award for Sustainable Development.

The Lord-Lieutenant Nigel Atkinson Esq said: “I had no idea Southern Co-op was formed in Portsmouth in 1873. At that time, it was set up in response to societal change. It was a business to help people help themselves. Sadly some of these issues still remain today and I’m pleased to see Southern Co-op is still here helping people.”

Mark Smith, Chief Executive of Southern Co-op, said: “The principles we have around sustainable development go all the way through our business so it is important that we celebrate this success with colleagues throughout our co-operative.”
