Ambitious plans to improve annual reports
Rathbones is a leading independent provider of investment and wealth management; they have 14 offices across the UK and manage over £20 billion in funds for their clients, which range from private investors to charities and trustees. As part of Rathbones’ commitment to continuously improving their CSR reporting process, they engaged Carbon Smart to help them produce a better annual report, which would be satisfactory to all stakeholders and cover all UK sites.
Rathbones has engaged Carbon Smart each year for five years, to help them produce a comprehensive annual report. Keen to demonstrate that interventions to the way they operate are impacting on their sustainability performance in a range of business areas, Rathbones looked to Carbon Smart to suggest innovative ways of presenting their figures. A special focus on resource-use and waste was requested, as well as a detailed breakdown of their carbon footprint, so that impact could be assessed in a great level of detail.
