Home / About Us / Corporate Social Responsibility

We aim to integrate CSR into everything that we do.

By combining the talents and efforts of our people, our goal is an effective Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Programme which will have an impact on the community, environment, work place and market place.

As a responsible business, we are committed to conducting business in a socially responsible manner. Our goal is to integrate CSR into everything that we do.

We recognise that there is an appropriate role for business in helping to tackle some of the issues affecting our society. We also recognise that employee volunteering, offering our services for free, and organising charitable fundraising initiatives, creates valuable opportunities for personal development and teamwork.

BDB Pitmans are a proud member of the Legal Sustainability Alliance

We are pleased to confirm that we have completed the baseline assessment of our carbon footprint, with the support of an independent environmental consultancy, Green Element.

This is our first assessment, to enable us to truly understand our environmental impact and we will require enhanced data capture on an ongoing basis to allow us to measure our carbon reduction progress.

The firm has a Climate Change Strategy Group to oversee our carbon reduction programme.
