ISUZU Motors South Africa has been announced as the winner of the 2023 ‘The Herald Nelson Mandela University Citizens of The Year” in the Business Category. The announcement was made during the annual gala event that took place on Friday, 08 September in Gqeberha.
The Citizens of The Year awards give homage to ten remarkable individuals or organisations nominated by the public who selflessly serve those in need by recognising compelling stories of hope and inspiration.
From 50 nominations submitted by the general public, the six judges had the tough task of whittling down the worthy competitors to select the nine category winners.
Accepting the award, ISUZU Motors South Africa, Senior Vice President for Human Capital, and Corporate Affairs, Mongezi Hermans says: “ISUZU Motors South Africa is a responsible corporate citizen of the Nelson Mandela Bay that has a social obligation to help uplift our communities. It is crucial for us to ensure we walk in step with society in their path to success. The Citizen of The Year award is a validation of our social license to operate within this community. It sends a strong signal to the market and confirms that we are indeed a company with a soul”.
ISUZU continues to implement a BOLD and intentional corporate responsibility strategy focused on skills development, education, environmental management and providing support to natural disaster relief under the theme ‘ISUZU Cares, I Care Too’.
