What we care about
Doing our best for our employees, our customers & our communities
For Royal London Corporate Responsibly means doing business the right way, and by that we mean:
Adding value in the community
We think it’s important for businesses to support the communities where it operates, and that’s why we encourage our employees to volunteer, and recognise the commitment, time and energy they give to the community.
As a business, we have been partnering with Bloodwise (previously Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research) since 2013. Our employees’ energy and enthusiasm has raised over £170,000 to date. Read more about our support in the community.
Responsible business practices
We believe in treating all customers fairly, and while we are developing simple, transparent products we also believe it is important to explain them clearly. We’ve developed a ‘Finglish’ glossary on our website, which translates confusing financial English that plagues the financial industry into plain English. In addition, through the Royal London Money Manager customers can use financial tools and calculators, access educational guides and watch videos to help people make informed financial decisions.
Our Royal London Asset Management (RLAM) business is committed to being a responsible investor. This means being a good steward of assets and promoting responsible investment with other stakeholders. And as part of that commitment RLAM seeks to understand environmental, social and governance risks and opportunities within the investment process.
Investing in the workplace
We value our employees, and show them how much we care through helpful services such as our Employee Assistance Programme. Because we think healthy people are happy people, we also offer workplace health initiatives and a range of flexible benefits to improve their working life.
We are also committed to recruiting, developing, promoting and training employees on the basis of individual competencies and performance, respecting and valuing a diverse workplace.
Looking after our environment
For us this means things like minimising our business travel to reduce carbon emissions, and investing in video and teleconferencing technology. It also means increased recycling facilities in our buildings, reducing water and energy usage as best we can, for example: through more efficient kitchen facilities, heating, cooling and ventilation systems.
We also take environmental impacts such as the use of energy, natural resources and the production of waste into account through our Property Investment activities. Read more information.
