In 2021, Be Ethical Training (BET) was invited by Indutrade UK to deliver ‘An introduction to ESG’ across the Group’s wider sustainability group. The introduction aimed to encourage the group’s individual businesses to explore ways to celebrate and share the great work they do for their communities, people and the planet.

As a response to the training, we, at Beldam Crossley, have started to implemented the ESG (environmental, social and governance) approach, by rolling out the awareness training across the team to gain more sustainability growth.
