DAN Shipping & Chartering is pleased to announce that parent company, John Good Group, has been crowned the winner of the Family Business of the Year for Sustainability award. This accolade is presented by Family Business United, an organisation created to champion family firms.

The awards ceremony was held at The Royal College of Physicians on June 20, 2024. The event was a celebration of the dedication and achievement of family businesses in the United Kingdom.

Adam Walsh, CEO of John Good Group, says, “It’s particularly pleasing to win the Family Business of the Year Sustainability Award as it shows the recognition of our continued efforts to try and take responsibility for our own actions, in the face of this global challenge. Our sustainability programme is in its infancy but we will always put the planet at the forefront of everything we do in the business and with our wider stakeholders.

Thank you to Paul Andrews for hosting a great awards evening, it was a pleasure to be amongst such forward-thinking family-run businesses.”

Paul Andrews, the founder of Family Business United, underscored the importance of family businesses in the UK’s economy, “Family firms are the backbone of the UK economy and contribute significantly in so many ways.  Family firms deserve all the recognition they can get for all the good that they do in terms of employment, income generation, and wealth creation, not forgetting their continued charitable endeavours and investment in the communities in which they operate.”

DAN Shipping & Chartering also takes this opportunity to extend congratulations to all the winners and those shortlisted for the Family Business of the Year Awards 2024.
