Building a reputation as a responsible business sets you apart. Companies often favour suppliers who demonstrate responsible policies, as this can have a positive impact on how they are perceived by customers.
Some customers don’t just prefer to deal with responsible companies, but insist on it. Sales of environmentally friendly products continue to grow and these products often sell at a premium price.
We strongly recommend you publish your Business Social Responsibility statement on your web site so we have provided a few examples that you may wish to consider;
