NERC as a responsible business

Corporate Responsibility is an organisation's commitment to managing its activities in a responsible way.

At NERC we see corporate responsibility as encompassing social, ethical and environmental issues and our commitment is apparent in how we operate, including in our management and decision-making processes.

NERC Corporate Responsibility focuses on four commitments:

  • Living our values in the environment in which we work.
  • Transparent business practices, with partners that share our values.
  • Engaging and supporting our community, internally and locally.
  • Research with integrity, carried out by a diverse, representative and outstanding body of researchers.

More detail is given in our corporate responsibility statement published in May 2016.

We will shortly be adding details of our targets and reporting against them at six-monthly intervals.
