CSR at Coffin Mew – our commitment to our community and the environment
As a firm which has its roots firmly anchored to the local community for over 100 years, our personal connections and responsibilities to those communities, to our people and our environment really matter to us.
The way we conduct our business is guided by values of honesty and integrity, client focus and team spirit.
We use those values to have a positive impact on not only the people who work for Coffin Mew, but in the firm’s relationship with the outside world. We are dependent on our natural environment and the wider social community.
We have a long history of commitment and support to local community groups and charities. We are committed to giving our time, energy, skills and ideas to projects and events.
We look at every opportunity to minimise our impact on the environment and to reduce our carbon footprint and use sustainable resources.
Our people are the engine of the firm and strive for a diverse workplace where people are valued and encouraged to develop their unique skills.
