Western Building Consultants Ethics

 

Western Building Consultants Bristol are committed to operating in an ethical manner, our staff are bound by the extremely high professional ethic standards required by the RICS & CIAT. We recognise that this alone is not enough, we need to continuely  improve our processes and ethical practices . In 2015 we introduced a new policy, our Coporate Social Responsibility Policy (CSR) is an all encompasing stratergy and operation manual with measurable targets rather than a vague set of principles. In late 2016 we will be reviewing our CSR policy to measure how we have performed and set our next goals for 2017.
