How we'll achieve these goals

Together with our colleagues, we strive to impact community and social development, not only within our own locations but around the world. Aligning our CSR strategy with the overall Group purpose ensures we continuously operate responsibly and create long-term positive value for society.

As a Group, our CSR strategy operates in three main areas, Partnerships, Community and Personal.

Making a difference for our customers, colleagues and communities

Our purpose and values are core to our success.

The satisfaction I get from being able to impact people's lives is amazing

I have met and established great partnerships with those volunteers who work tirelessly and passionately for the charities that are close to their own hearts. It's a pleasure to be involved in making a difference through BGL's donations and fundraising processes.

We have made such a difference in Sunderland, I'm proud to be a part of BGL's CSR programme

I had a clear vision of how we could maximise our impact on the community by making the most of the funds provided by BGL. It’s not an exaggeration to say that some of our local charities wouldn’t have been able to continue with the great work they are doing if it wasn’t for the Community team here in Sunderland, supported by BGL.
