Putting responsible behaviour at the heart of your business
Westminster City Council has partnered with Heart of the City to support businesses to get involved in corporate social responsibility (CSR).
Westminster is an amazing borough – a place of great opportunity and where aspirations can become reality for a great number of people. However, not everyone can benefit from this - the attractiveness of the area means residents face a high level of competition for those opportunities as well as bearing the burden of the pressures associated with being in central London.
Westminster City Council wants to support all businesses to behave responsibly towards their customers, clients, employees, suppliers, the wider community and the environment, and has various initiatives to support, recognise and reward firms for their responsible business activities.
The Council is working with Heart of the City to engage with and support small to medium sized businesses across the City of Westminster. Heart of the City is the country’s largest responsible business network for small companies and has supported hundreds of London firms to do business better. Through Heart of the City, large companies offer their CSR expertise for free to help other companies kick-start their responsible business activities. The charity is governed by senior businesses leaders from a wide range of sector and its co-Presidents are the Lord Mayor of the City of London and the Governor of the Bank of England, Mark Carney. You can find out more about Heart of the City here.
