At Grant Thornton, we’re always aware of the impact that our business activities could have on the wider community. And with that in mind, we want whatever we’re doing to have only positive effects for our people, our clients and suppliers, our environment and our community.
We believe being a good business is about more than just a strong reputation in the business world, it’s about having the respect of the public. This is why we give our community and environmental performances equal importance to that of our financial and business ones.
Corporate responsibility reflects our values as a firm, and it’s a part of our business that we’re committed to improving. Part of that commitment has been to create a special leadership group, made up of partners and staff from across the firm, chaired by our Chief Executive Officer, Scott Barnes. Their task is to develop innovative and exciting strategies to bring our corporate responsibility agenda to life and promote its importance to everyone at Grant Thornton.
Each year, we aim to compare our activities and performances with our peers and other business operations on a Corporate Responsibility Index. This way we can identify areas for improvement to ensure that we always move forwards with our corporate responsibility programme.
