Rathbone Investment Management shortlisted for the Echo corporate social responsibility award

Rathbones confirms it has been shortlisted for the Echo Corporate Social Responsibility Award 2014, part of the Echo Regional Business Awards to be held on 3 July at St George’s Hall, Liverpool.

The awards recognise those companies, business leaders and teams which have demonstrated excellence in all fields of commerce and industry.  The Corporate Social Responsibility Award specifically acknowledges firms that are putting time or money back into the community.  The awards dinner will be hosted by former BBC broadcaster Peter Sissons and will be attended by top business professionals from the Liverpool area.

Rathbones has a dedicated Social & Environmental Committee (SEC) to ensure that all areas of business practice are consistent with the social and environmental policy and embraced by the company as a whole.  The SEC is also responsible for the on-going development and implementation of a business strategy that continually references social, environmental and ethical considerations.

Andrew Morris, at Rathbones, said, “Rathbones has been closely linked with the community in Liverpool since its foundation over 250 years ago, and a strong belief in corporate social responsibility has been a guiding principle throughout its history.  It is a great honour, therefore, to receive this recognition from the Echo’s Regional Business Awards – awards that are widely held to be the highest accolade for business in the North West.”
