Granby News Update

August 2023

From ISO and Sustainability accreditations to our Stepping Stones programme. A full month of Granby news.

This month we take a deeper dive into the world of ISO standards, what are they and why do they matter? Leading on directly from that is the great news that we maintained our Gold Ecovadis Sustainability Rating, we take a closer look at just what that represents - for us, our clients and our world. In other news, our Stepping Stones programme, bringing on the next generation of leaders at Granby, is in full swing with the second session. We hope you find something interesting or of interest here. And if you have any feedback at all, we'd love to hear it. And August's picture is of the Ribble Valley here in Lancashire.
