Corporate social responsibility

As part of our plan to meet our objective to be a world class organisation, we are committed to improving our performance in relation to corporate social responsibility  including a continued focus on environmental sustainability.

This is currently addressed in three ways:

  1. The work we undertake to  ensure that as an organisation we meet our 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 we put in place to facilitate positive engagement in the community by our own staff. 
  3. Work we do 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.


The new staff charity for 2016-17 is the Stroke Association

Stroke Association is the leading charity in the UK changing the world for people affected by stroke.  More people than ever are benefitting from cutting-edge treatments and making full recoveries. And more people now understand the need to seek emergency treatment for stroke.  The Stroke Association has been at the heart of every one of these developments, championing the cause of stroke and stroke survivors.  Their research has helped to improve treatments and care which has saved tens of thousands of lives.  Their support services have helped hundreds of thousands of people get through one of the most frightening experiences of their lives and build a life after stroke.
