Following on from a detailed analysis of our business by ESG Mark, we are delighted to have been awarded with an ESG Kitemark. ESG Mark’s objective is to help organisations and consumers create a more responsible, sustainable and fairer future.
The process to achieve the ESG kitemark accreditation involved a thorough assessment of our ESG credentials in the three areas of Environmental, Social and Governance practice. It entailed a review of our practices and way of working, covering factors such as how we, as a firm, seek to reduce their environmental impact, how we operate an equal opportunities policy and seek to have a positive impact in the communities in which we operate.
ESG Mark additionally assessed how we provided support to all our stakeholders – employees, advisers and clients. This has been particularly relevant during the last 12 months. Additionally, the accreditation process reviewed our approach to Corporate Governance, best practice and integrity.
As a business we are very proud to join the ESG Kitemark community. Being able to demonstrate our ESG credentials is vitally important to us and helps us to continually deliver the ultimate client experience.
