Grant Thornton: Responsible investment high priority

New survey of medium and large UK businesses

Forty percent of medium and large businesses across the UK are looking to
invest in areas related to the environment and corporate responsibility in the
coming year, according to research by
Grant Thornton.

This was the key finding from a survey of 200 medium and large businesses
across the UK – the second equal in priority over the next 12 months was
investment in training and development, and regulation (26%), followed by 9% of
companies who plan on investing in infrastructure and premises.

An overwhelming 99% of business leaders surveyed rated environmental and
corporate responsibility issues as either important or very important in
comparison to other issues on their business agenda.
