Community and environment

Community

Positive engagement with local communities is at the heart of our CSR programme as we aim to minimise our negative impact and ensure we act as a ‘responsible neighbour’.

Since the development of the ‘Get Involved’ programme in 2014, the Group has encouraged employees to be more hands-on with their approach to connecting with local communities and charitable activities.

Stobart Group does not make financial or other donations to any political parties or organisations.
