Community impact

In accordance with the LBG model, we monitor the short and long-term benefits of the projects with which we are involved. We ask beneficiaries to report on their progress and we share their letters and updates on the RE Cares section of The Wire, our corporate intranet, to increase transparency and awareness.

Our global network of 212 RE Cares Champions (expanded from 190 in 2014) brings the RE Cares programme to life. They may be senior managers or support staff but they all have a common passion: making a difference in their communities.

To support them, we held teleconferences and webinars throughout 2015 to share challenges and best practice, and to set the strategic direction of the programme. We also updated our RE Cares Champions induction programme to add more guidance and activity ideas.
