Corporate Social Responsibility
At Close Brothers Motor Finance, we have our own dedicated Colleague Forum. This group leads our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives. We also have a CSR Champion in each of our locations to support all regional activities. The Forum is split into five sub committees: Charity, Wellbeing, Community and Environment, Diversity and Inclusion and Values. We have dedicated events throughout the year for everyone to get involved in. Some of our activities have included:
- 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 operates a scheme where charitable donations are matched by the Group.
