Sustainability and corporate responsibility

Our Principles:

At Monks Estate & Letting Agents we recognise that we must integrate our business values and operations to meet the expectations of our clients, in relation to customers, employees, regulators, investors, suppliers, the community and the environment.

We wish to reduce our environmental impact, and to contribute towards social responsibility, particularly in the areas of our social, economic and environmental choices.

We will:

  • recognise that our social, economic and environmental responsibilities to our clients are integral to our business;
  • aim to demonstrate our commitment to our responsibilities through our actions and within our corporate policies;
  • take seriously all feedback that we receive from our clients and customers and, where possible, maintain open dialogue with them to ensure that we fulfil the requirements of this policy

The Company Directors are responsible for the implementation of this policy and will make the necessary resources available to realise our corporate responsibilities. However, all employees of Monks Estate & Letting Agents are responsible for our successful performance of this policy.
