Since 2015 The Grichan Partnership has been proud to sponsor the Lloyds Bank National Business Awards Sustainable Business Award.
Grichan Partnership’s CEO, Richard Hewitt, highlights why the firm continues to sponsor the award and why he believes the sustainable business agenda needs to be at the heart of how high-performing businesses are run: “It’s fair to say that the only certainty businesses have faced over the past ten years is both an unprecedented degree of global financial instability and an associated fluctuation of opportunity across all markets. Many column inches have been devoted to the war for talent in challenging times, so how can companies maintain a sustainable competitive advantage?
“Sustainability, being a truly sustainable business, goes far beyond the obvious good sense of being a responsible custodian of resources. Measuring and reducing consumption of water and energy, and reducing waste is simply good business sense, good business efficiency. However, through these awards, all of the finalists in The Grichan Partnership Sustainable Business Award have demonstrated a number of innovations and commitments within their firms that not only include an environmental ethic but also put economic, societal and cultural measures at the core of how they operate. We hope that firms of all sizes will draw inspiration from the award-winners”.
