Corporate Social Responsibility
At Close Brothers Motor Finance, we have our own dedicated Colleague Forum who meet monthly to lead our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives. The Forum is made up of colleagues from across the business and we also have a dedicated CSR Champion in each location to support all activities locally.
The Forum is split into 5 sub committees; Charity, Wellbeing, Community & Environment, Values and Diversity & Inclusion. We have dedicated events throughout the year for everyone to get involved in. Some of our activities include:
- Planting 500 trees in schools across the UK to reduce our carbon footprint
- Raising almost £40,000 during charity week in aid of Cancer Research UK and Make-A-Wish Foundation UK
- Completing 812 hours of volunteering and helping 26 different charities and causes for our 'Gift of Time' initiative
- Collecting 1,175 Christmas presents as part of ‘Mission Christmas’ to be donated to children in need across the country
In addition to our company organised activities, Close Brothers also operate a matching scheme where charitable donations can be matched by the Group.
