Hertfordshire-based Harriet Kelsall is one of just three companies to be named a finalist in the responsible small business category, which champions business in the UK and abroad taking action to address social and environmental issues.
Representatives of Harriet Kelsall will go head-to-head against the two other finalists in the last stage of the awards, where each company will pitch their submission to a panel of industry experts and business leaders who will then select the overall winner.
Harriet Kelsall, managing director of the company, said: “We’re delighted to have reached the finals and recognise that there’s a high level of competition. However, we’ve been able to demonstrate that our commitment to responsibility extends far beyond our recognised ethical, sustainable and moral standard in the jewellery industry.
“We feed this approach into every area of the business and community that we engage with, making it rooted in the DNA of the business as a whole.”
Stephen Howard, chief Executive at Business in the Community, said: “The finalists are each playing their part to create a fairer society and more sustainable future by bringing to life the practical role that businesses can take to address some of our most pressing issues. We congratulate Harriet Kelsall Bespoke Jewellery for being an inspirational example for others to learn from.”
The overall winners in each category will be announced in London at Business in the Community’s annual responsible business gala dinner, on July 7.
