Corporate Social Responsibility
Lansdowne Partners is committed to supporting the wider community. We aim to improve the lives of the most disadvantaged in the UK and overseas through charitable giving, both financially and through volunteering programmes, whilst also building an awareness of our ecological footprint and protecting our planet.
Supporting the wider community is integral to our culture and values.
Our Charity initiative
Through the Lansdowne Charity Initiative every employee is encouraged on an annual basis to nominate a charity they are involved with, be it through volunteering or fundraising, which will then be approved for a discretionary grant.
In addition to this, the firm has carefully selected 5 local charities; SparkInside, IntoUniversity, Whizzkids, Eastside Young Leaders Academy and The Bike Project for a multiyear support programme – they have been specifically chosen so that the partners and employees can be directly involved in volunteering and fundraising.
Every year our employees are encouraged to get involved with charitable fundraising events.
Lansdowne is cognisant of our environmental impact and proud to be a carbon neutral organisation.
Our Carbon Footprint
We are increasingly aware of our impact on the environment. In 2016, we commissioned Carbon Footprint™ to conduct a full audit of the firm, our business practices and travels to reduce our carbon footprint. We selected three projects to support to offset our carbon footprint, earning Lansdowne a certificate of recognition.
In 2017, our audit noted a decrease in carbon emissions from a number of areas in the firm which we are delighted to achieve. We chose to support a further four projects to support this year to proudly remain a carbon neutral company.
