JH&P Returns is our corporate social responsibility initiative. There are four pillars to the campaign:
Charity giving and supporting our community
Our corporate charity partner is Greenhouse Sports, which provides inspirational coaching and mentoring within schools to young people from deprived and vulnerable backgrounds in London. Read more
We also support the Future Frontiers programme, which offers young people from disadvantaged backgrounds careers guidance and access to professional role models. Read more
All employees at James Hambro & Partners are given up to five days of paid leave each year to spend working for Greenhouse Sports or their own favoured charity and community projects.
During lockdown some of these activities have been curtailed, but you can read here how we raised spirits and money for charity this summer.
Supporting and developing our staff
We have an outstanding track record in nurturing talent and are committed to investing in training. As well as steps to ensure the physical wellbeing of staff (who are all offered BUPA membership), James Hambro & Partners is a signatory of Time to Change, which seeks to transform the way organisations think and act about mental health problems. Read more about our commitment to mental health.
Minimising our impact on the environment
We have a programme to reduce our impact on the environment within the office. We actively seek to reduce our energy consumption each quarter and are based in a building that has won awards for energy conservation.
We provide reusable cups for staff buying takeaway coffees, we minimise paper print and recycle as much of our waste as possible.
Responsible investment management
While offering all clients the opportunity to add ethical filters to their portfolios, we also ensure we play our part as responsible investors. We use proxy votes at AGMs to make the most of our influence as shareholders and to ensure the companies we hold are themselves run responsibly with regard to the environment, society and good governance.
