Chief Executive’s Introduction

Annual CSR Report 2015/16

  • As a business we want to grow. But we know that it is important to do so responsibly, and by working with our neighbours, employees, the communities we serve and by playing our part protecting the environment, our business can be much stronger as a result. So we want to focus on making an impact, and hope that by looking at wider issues such as education, skills or the environment, we can build a business that serves the interests of our neighbours and the wider area.
  • We’ve been successful too, achieving growth year on year for the past five years. But as we have grown we have made sure we have developed a CSR programme to match both our growth and our ambition.
  • Our CSR programme this year is the biggest it is has ever been. Focusing on our communities, the environment, regional businesses and our colleagues, we have invested time and resource into making a difference. This is not about philanthropy, but about taking the time to understand the differing needs of those in and around our business, and taking a long term view to ensure we can build a more sustainable business for the future.
