To the best of our knowledge, Unipart was the first British company to publish a mission statement challenging us to inspire all of our stakeholders to want to stay with us for life, moving away from a single short term focus on shareholders. On our journey, we’ve been inspired and our values reinforced by fellow members of Business in the Community, and we hope that, through Business in the Community and the RSA Tomorrow’s Company initiative, we have been able to inspire others.
Corporate Responsibility is about doing well by doing good. We understand that this is not simply altruism but commercially sensible. Strong successful communities can buy our products and services. Successful schools provide us with well trained and motivated employees who help us to build our business by engaging more effectively with our stakeholders than our global competitors. So it is in our interest to work with our communities, public services and schools for mutual benefit.
