THE BIG FOUR have been recognised for its work on sustainable business achieving platinum standard in the Business in the Community Corporate Responsibility Index.
Lisa Cameron, UK and Ireland managing partner for corporate responsibility E&Y, said: “To have received such a high level of external recognition for our commitment to responsible and sustainable business is a real achievement.
“We’ve continued to make progress in a number of areas, such as our environment management and in key metrics around diversity and inclusiveness. Our commitment to making the difference in our communities continues to be acknowledged. Last year we launched new programmes to support start up businesses and social enterprises which will provide support to up to 300 social entrepreneurs during 2012.”
