Corporate social responsibility

At First Rate, we believe in conducting business in a sustainable way, which generates profit for our shareholders and stakeholders while also protecting the environment and supporting the communities in which we operate.

To this end we are active in promoting corporate social responsibility and in ensuring we are fully accountable for our impact – economically, socially and environmentally.

Supporting principles are integrated and managed across the business in areas such as health & wellbeing, ways of working, customer experience, environmental considerations, employee fundraising and community involvement.
