Corporate Social Responsibility

Committed to the principles of strong environmental, social and corporate governance

Working to reduce our environmental impact

Blackrock Expert Services Group’s environmental policy focuses on minimising our environmental impact through consideration of energy use, waste and recycling, water use and conservation and effective use of technology.

We are increasingly engaging with our suppliers to ensure they are working with us towards the same aims.

Making a difference through charitable contributions

Blackrock Expert Services Group makes a positive contribution to communities through our support of various charities. Our chosen corporate charities are: CRASH, a unique, practical UK-based charity that assist homelessness and hospice charities with construction-related projects and Ian Hutcheon Clinic for Children (IHCC), a charity established in Uganda dedicated to helping children with hearing impairment in developing countries. We are also regular participants in the annual London Legal Walk which helps to raise funds for the London Legal Support Trust, an independent charity that supports law centres and pro bono agencies, providing free legal services in London and the South East.
