The Board of HMRC is committed to Corporate Responsibility (CR). Our corporate responsibility agenda underpins the way we do business, in order to maximise our positive impact on society. Over the last 5 years we have participated in the Business in the Community Corporate Responsibility Index. HMRC scored 96% in the 2008 Index and we have achieved Platinum standard.
Judy Greevy, Director of Corporate Responsibility and Diversity (CR&D), has overall responsibility for CR& D. She attends the quarterly Ethics and Responsibilities committee which is a sub- committee on the HMRC Board
The CR Unit oversees CR activity and manages the implementation of the CR Framework to - 'make it happen!' Its role is complemented by a CR Forum representing six 'pioneer' business units that are developing strategies to embed CR into their business activities.
Our CR objectives are to:
In common with all Government Departments we produce an Annual Spring Report. In 2007 we will produce our first CR review, as an addendum to the Departmental Report.
Our performance in protecting the environment is monitored on an annual basis by the Sustainable Development Commission (SDC). The SDC is the Governments independent advisory body and watchdog for sustainable development, which assesses the performance of central Government departments against the targets for Sustainable Operations on the Government Estate.
