A RESPONSIBLE BUSINESS.


Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is about how we behave as a business, whether we trade ethically, how we influence the way other organisations manage themselves and the efforts we make to reduce our own and the industry’s environmental impacts.

We work to make a difference by campaigning on the issues that relate to our business, and where we have expertise.

We believe that we have a responsibility to help strengthen the communities and the environment in which we live and work. We do this by becoming involved in local projects and lending our support to initiatives where we can help to enrich the quality of life and increase opportunities for all.

We have been leading the way in working with experts from the third sector about the changing needs of society, which increasingly impact our business. This can also help the third sector to operate in a more sustainable and commercially viable way, as traditional routes of funding become harder to source in the current economic climate.

OUR CAMPAIGNS

We have a programme of six CSR campaigns which are closely linked to our business objectives. Full details of these campaigns can be found in our CSR report (www.legalandgeneralgroupcsr.com/), but below is some information on two of the key campaigns we have focused on in 2011.
