The commitments we make in our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme are an integral part of our business and reflect and inform our firm values.
Our long association with Holborn inspires a sense of belonging and concern for the community and, for several years now, we have supported the Holborn Community Association (HCA). This provides opportunities to get involved in local initiatives, especially those that provide support to young people.
We also focus on encouraging school students to consider further study of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM), primarily through the STEM Ambassador programme, which allows students to explore the future careers related to these subjects. Carpmaels also provides work experience to students from underprivileged backgrounds through the Social Mobility Foundation.
Whether it’s helping save the honeybee, recycling batteries and paper, or choosing Fair Trade tea and coffee, we are determined to pursue a sustainable workplace.
We have made a commitment to manage our environmental footprint proactively and to reduce the impact of our operations on the environment. To achieve carbon neutrality, Carpmaels & Ransford is working with Climate Impact Partners, specialist in carbon market solutions for climate action.
We are also engaged in the Midtown Bee Project and installed a beehive on our roof in 2016, which is now tended to by our thriving Bee Club.
Our Charity of the Year scheme enables the Carpmaels community to raise awareness and funds for a cause that we are passionate about.
Our Charity of the Year for 2023 is City Harvest, a food surplus charity aiming to tackle food poverty in London. City Harvest rescues food, people, and the planet by preventing food waste, providing life-changing support to communities in every London borough, as well as reducing greenhouse gas emissions from food waste.
We look forward to supporting City Harvest through the volunteering opportunities and fundraising initiatives we have in place.
In 2022 we were proud to support Centrepoint, the UK’s leading youth homelessness charity. You can read more about our collaboration with Centrepoint here.
