Supporting Our Communities

At MacRoberts, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is a part of our every day. It includes our approach to developing and maintaining credible and long-term relationships with employees and clients, being socially responsible in our surrounding areas and beyond, and being environmentally friendly.

We see the purpose of CSR as two-fold: firstly, to help us give something back to the community in which we work; and secondly, to foster a team spirit within the firm, bonding people together and making us closer as work colleagues, generating a pride in who we are and how we work, which translates to a better service to our clients.
