The social factors of ESG will continue to grow in importance, with more attention to diversity and social justice. We are proud to announce that we have been doing much work in this space and have recently launched our new ED&I (Equality, Diversity and Inclusion) webpage.

Our aim is to provide greater transparency around our progress on these efforts, and hopefully in a manner that makes it relatable to all of our clients across Yorkshire and the East Midlands. For any more information, please don't hesitate to contact me.
