Missing People partner Royal Mail has been awarded a 2016 "CSR Coups de Cœur" award by PostEurop during its Plenary Assembly on 9 November 2016 in The Hague, Netherlands.
The awards highlight best practice in the field of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) amongst European Postal Operators in the areas of Employee, Society and Environment.
Royal Mail was awarded the "Coup de Coeur” for Society in recognition of their efforts in “Supporting communities with the charity Missing People.”
David Barnes, European Policy Manager received the award on behalf of Royal Mail. The programme uses its wide network of postmen and women to rapidly distribute missing people alerts which reache thousands of people across the UK in an hour. "We are really proud that our partnership with Missing People has been recognised with the Coups de Coeur Award. Our business is connected to every community in the UK, delivering to 29 million addresses, six days a week. We are in a unique position to help in the search for missing people. We look forward to continuing to use our unique position to support this important service and reunite families with their missing loved ones." said Gary Grange, Royal Mail’s Community Investment Manager.
