Social Responsibility


We aim to minimise the effect of our activities on the environment.  We offset all of our business travel.  When cars are required, we only use firms who supply electric hybrid cars.  Increasingly we can use telephone conferences to avoid business travel.  While we try to use email in our client correspondence as much as possible to minimise paper use, all of the paper we do use is 100% recycled and all waste paper is recycled again.  Environmental factors are always a consideration when selecting office supplies and equipment.

These measures often have the added benefit of cost savings for our clients.  Our members of staff are all aware of the need to minimise waste and we continually strive to improve our practices to achieve this.

Equal Opportunities

We aim to provide a working environment that is free from discrimination, bullying and harassment.  We promote mutual respect and encourage quality, productivity and creativity.  All decisions are based on merit.

We operate a policy of equal opportunities in all aspects of employment practices.  We recruit, train, develop and reward people regardless of

  • age
  • disability
  • gender
  • marital status
  • nationality
  • pregnancy and maternity
  • racial or ethnic origins
  • religion or belief
  • sexual orientation.

Our equal opportunities policy is reviewed regularly in consultation with our staff and in accordance with advice from the Equality & Human Rights Commission.  Any concerns, complaints or breaches, whether from employees, clients or service providers, will be referred to our Managing Director.

Communities and Charities

It is part of our ethos to encourage positive involvement and support to our wider society, including charities and schools.  Examples include offering pro bono work, running an invention competition in a local school, and contributions to support children orphaned by the 2011 Tohuku earthquake and tsunami.  We also support our staff in charitable causes of their choosing.
