Corporate social responsibility

We take CSR seriously and have a structured programme and policy at the heart of our business.

Our approach to CSR

Equiniti is committed to being a responsible Group and is supportive of the communities in which it operates. We align our behaviour with the expectations and needs of our customers and investors, employees, suppliers, communities, regulators, special interest groups and society as a whole. A core part of our approach as a business is how we impact on the world and people around us – and the work of our CSR committee and champions is something we are passionate about.

At Equiniti we are continually developing our approach and framework for CSR. Equiniti is based on sound business ethics and our CSR approach is the same. We define our responsibilities around four pillars, each supported by our business policies, and each one active in every area of our operation.


We recognise the importance of protecting the environment and the impact of commerce on environmental issues. It is an area which requires a sustainable and proactive strategy to ensure we protect the environment for future generations and we are committed to continual improvement in energy efficiency and avoidance of waste. We set energy targets and have green policies in place to lower our carbon footprint.


At Equiniti we are passionate about people. Our people are at the core of our business and we want to make them feel valued. We have a number of people and communications strategies to influence employee engagement, include reward and recognition schemes.


We benchmark our performance and engage with our stakeholders to improve service and ensure effective governance. Communication is a key part of our strategy, and communicating effectively with our stakeholders is an important component of our CSR strategy.

Community and Charity

We work with a number of different charities such as ABF The Soldiers Charity, for which we have raised over £45,000 during the three years we have supported it.  This year we have chosen Winston's Wish as our national charity partner.  We are also active in supporting local community projects and initiatives, including supporting a number of local schools and investing in young talent.
