Houston, the independent PR agency, has become the first business in the communications sector to be awarded the ESGmark® accreditation, which recognises organisations that are committed to making a positive difference to the environment, their clients, employees and communities.
Houston is an agency committed to transparent relationships, ethical business practices and supporting the health and wellbeing of its people. Becoming part of the ESGmark® community signals to Houston’s clients and other stakeholders that it is a responsible business acting to deliver a fairer, more sustainable future.
Commenting, Houston’s Managing Director Kate Hoare, said: “Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) has in recent years become a key priority for many of our current and prospective clients. As communications advisors in this space, it is important that we demonstrate our own commitment to behaving in a responsible and sustainable way. The ESGmark® accreditation does just this, while aligning with our own values as a team. We look forward to becoming part of the ESGmark® community.”
