The recognition came about following the company's nomination by the Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce as a UK Business Hero, as part of a campaign to recognise the incredible work that UK businesses are doing, in the most challenging of years. Leonardo was one of five members of the Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce recognised for their outstanding work throughout the pandemic.
Alexia Haramis, Head of Corporate and International at the Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce, said: “I am delighted that the hard work of our members has been recognised by the British Chambers of Commerce. So many business have gone over and above throughout the pandemic to innovate, meet new demands and support those in need.
“This is a welcome celebration of the hard work and dedication of our business communities across the UK, and I’d like to extend congratulations to all our Business Heroes in Edinburgh – Cyrenians, ClearWater Hygiene, Parabola, Edinburgh Remakery and Leonardo.”
The initiative is also supported by HRH The Countess of Wessex, who, in a letter to the recognised Business Heroes, wrote: “It has been a particular pleasure to hear stories of how you have supported your local communities throughout the outbreak and to see you nominated as UK Business Heroes by your local Chamber of Commerce.”
