We’re committed to making a difference. That’s not just a commitment to you and your business: We’re committing to changing lives in our day-to-day work and beyond.
We’re making an impact. Our relationship with you allows us to have a direct impact on your goals, and in turn, you support us in impacting the lives in the local community as well as lives across the world.
We’re recognised as an accredited B Corporation, and we’re proud to be part of a growing community aiming to pursue purpose as well as profit.
Being a B Corporation
In 2021 we became an accredited B Corp. This accreditation recognises our accomplishments in meeting rigorous social and environmental standards, which represent our commitment to goals outside of profit and having a positive impact on our people, clients and the environment.
We’re at the beginning of our B Corp journey, and although we’ve been recognised as a market leader, we’ll continue to look for more ways to support our people, help others, and help preserve our world.
Since we were founded, our mission statement has always been “Helping to improve the lives of our clients, our people, and our communities.” But we wanted our support to reach even further.
So, we’ve partnered with Buy1Give1 to do exactly that and have a positive impact on lives across the world. Here we believe that every business has the power to change lives by integrating giving into its everyday business activities. Doing this together with you is a simple but powerful example of putting that belief into action.
By partnering with us, you’re also making a contribution to a plethora of projects, in line with the UN’s sustainable development goals including access to clean water, medical support, education and nourishing meals.
We’re committed to sustainable development, whether that’s by recycling, switching off the lights, cycling to work, car sharing or getting our fingers dirty to help out in the community.
We’ve also taken steps to reduce our carbon footprint, having done so by 86% in the last 18 months. This has saved us over £3,000 on energy bills by switching to a greener energy provider. As a result, our building is now powered by 100% biomass renewable electricity and carbon zero gas.
As bronze levels members of Investors of the Environment, our team are often out of the office making a difference with litter pick-ups and garden maintenance.
INTERACTION WITH OUR COMMUNITIES
To celebrate out 100th birthday in 2020, we’re undergoing an intensive fundraising campaign to raise £100,000 for 100 different charities or community projects.
Each year staff are asked to vote for our Charity of the Year and contribute to ways of making money for these causes. This year we are proud to support the Tiny Lives Trust, which we have supported by arranging a high-profile Chocolate Box Charity Ball. Our thanks go to over 150 guests who attended to help raise over £7,000 for this incredible cause.
As part of our ongoing efforts, our charity cell also organises a number of charity events each year that help to support our local charities and community projects.
STARTING A NEW BUSINESS CAN BE TOUGH
We impact businesses by helping with what’s important to you. When your journey is derailed, we support you and plan the right scenario to get you back on track.
PROVIDING THEIR CONNECTIONS WITH CONFIDENCE
Working in the off-shore gas industry, Barrier came under some financial difficulty in 1995. They came to us for help, and we worked with them to give their creditors and authorities confidence to continue working together.
Since then, Barrier have gone on to develop their own products and expertise, which put them in a position to claim for R&D tax credits. We helped advise and support them through this application, which has led them to being ahead of their market in so many ways!
Paul Miller came to us when his solicitor firm was going through some dramatic changes. They were transitioning from a traditional partnership to an LLP, with one partner retiring and another one coming onboard.
In order to make the transitions smooth for them, we sat down and created a clear and planned road map, as well as provided support on a personal and corporate level. This has Paul shape his business with no stone left unturned.
