Provident’s belief is that its continued success cannot be separated from the responsibilities it has towards its customers, employees and other stakeholders, this includes addressing the issues that are relevant to the communities it serves and the wider impacts it has on the environment. This means that an important part of how Provident operates relates to being a good corporate citizen, which is why it is committed to corporate social responsibility (CSR).
Provident’s commitment to CSR has been acknowledged and rewarded by its inclusion in the FTSE4Good Index, Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes and, more recently, in the Ethibel PIONEER and Ethibel EXCELLENCE Investment Registers. Being included in these indices is demonstrable evidence of Provident’s commitment to operating its business in a responsible manner, and that the social, environmental and ethical impacts that are material to its operations are well managed.
The company has a presence in almost every town and city in the UK and Ireland, as well as in many rural areas, and their flagship ‘Good neighbour’ programme ensures they have a positive impact in the many local communities it serves.
With their HQ in based locally, Provident actively promotes social responsibility throughout its supply chain and in the local business community by supporting ‘Raising the Bar’.
