Shared Responsibility

Front-Page.jpg   It has always been important to us to think about
   the world beyond our office walls. In
   our view, Corporate Social Responsibility – in its
   broadest sense – includes not only our
   impact on the environment and our local
   community but also our behaviour towards all
   our stakeholders (for example, how we
   communicate with our clients, how we choose
   suppliers and how we recruit team members). 



Buzzacott’s Shared Responsibility programme focuses on the more specialist aspects of CSR – philanthropy, community and the environment. As you will see from our annual CSR Report, we aspire to involve all of our staff, partners and suppliers and to do more year by year.

The programme is founded on our charitable trust, the Buzzacott Stuart Defries Memorial Fund. Established in 2003 in memory of one of our partners, the Fund aims to assist children and young people from deprived backgrounds in boroughs adjoining the City. The Fund provides grants and other support to suitable charities as well as staff matched giving. In addition, everyone who works for Buzzacott is given 14 hours per year to use for volunteering. This means time given to the community and last year we spent more than a thousand hours farming and gardening, cleaning and clearing, teaching, coaching and befriending.

Environmental responsibility is built into our office (for example, almost all of our lights are controlled by motion sensors) and is a key part of our supply chain. Our treatment of our waste and scrap materials is tested annually by the Clean City Awards Scheme and in recent years, we have consistently been given a Gold Award.

Our CSR Report was produced for our colleagues in December 2015, but we hope there is plenty of interest in it for other readers, as well.

   Our commitment to environmentaly friendly printing

   Since the publication of our CSR Report we’ve changed our print
   supplier – which is not interesting in itself, but because of the reason
   why we changed. Print was one of the last non-green links in our green
   supply chain but printing’s environmental problems are not unsolvable,
   even if some of the solutions are very new.

   We’ve given a brief update on the initiatives behind this move in the
   latest version of our firm-wide magazine, Beyond the Numbers, which
   you can download here.
