Corporate social responsibility

As part of the Society's plan to meet its objective to be a high performing organisation, the Society is committed to improving its performance in relation to corporate social responsibility  including a continued focus on environmental sustainability.

This is currently addressed in three ways:

  1. The work the Society is undertaking to  ensure that as an organisation it timeously meets its obligations under the Scottish Government's Zero Waste (Scotland) Regulations 2012 in relation to segregation of all recyclable waste materials.
  2. The programme of initiatives the Society has put in place to facilitate positive engagement in the community by its own staff and members.
  3. Work by the Society to provide a hub of information for the profession and individual members regarding:
  • steps they themselves must take to comply with forthcoming regulations
  • steps they may choose to take to improve their own energy efficiency and
  • to inform themselves as to regulatory changes about which their clients will wish to obtain advice.

A selection of sources of information and advice is available from the Society's Resource-efficient business page.

News

The new staff charity for 2015-16 is Cystic Fibrosis Trust

Cystic fibrosis is a life-shortening inherited disease, affecting over 10,000 people in the UK. It is chronically misunderstood, kills thousands worldwide and is carried unknowingly in the genes of millions. It's often invisible to the naked eye yet destroys lives, stopping them short, inflicting hardship and distress on those affected, their families and carers.
