Creating a better tomorrow



As an independent global practice of consultants, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is at the core of our values, and firmly anchored in our corporate culture.

Our CSR programmes reflect how we align our values, behaviours and business practices with the expectations and needs of our stakeholders, including customers, employees, suppliers, local communities, regulators, special interest groups and society as a whole.

At Rider Levett Bucknall (RLB), we understand this involves going beyond legal minimums, and that doing the right thing matters. We engage with our stakeholders, and then act responsibly.

We are committed to "Creating a Better Tomorrow" and go beyond just saying so, we go on to prove it:

We address CSR under 4 core pillars: People, Clients, Environment and Community

RLB is committed to:
  • Fairness and Equality of Opportunity
  • An inclusive and safe working environment
  • Reducing our environmental footprint
  • Purposeful stakeholder engagement
  • Delivering financial, social and environmental value
  • Communicating, monitoring and improving our CSR performance
  • Working with clients to create a better tomorrow


Investing in our people underpins our continued success.

We know that by building a diverse and inclusive workforce we are building our business for the future. Diversity & Inclusion strategies and policies exist across every area in which we work.

We focus on:
  • Staff wellbeing through various health and wellness programs
  • Building a diverse workforce by recruiting, retaining, developing and promoting a team that reflects the communities in which we live and work
  • Improving professional skills and knowledge through ongoing training opportunities


We believe in delivering successful and sustainable outcomes for our clients.

We bring our understanding of the longer-term social and economic impact of our activities to help our clients build for a better future.

We focus on:
  • Understanding our clients’ sustainability requirements and embedding these as outcomes of our service delivery
  • Working collaboratively to drive development and industry improvement
  • Ensuring we work in a sustainable way


We are committed to minimising our environmental impacts and delivering positive environmental outcomes.

Our offices in Hong Kong and Singapore maintain an Environmental Management System certified to ISO14001:2015 covering both our day-to-day business activities and the services we deliver for our clients.

We focus on:
  • Reviewing our activities to identify environmental impacts and opportunities for improvement
  • Supporting environmental programmes organised by local communities
  • Responsible sourcing of materials and reducing our use of single-use plastic


We give back to the communities in which we live and work, now and in the future.

Our program of CSR, community and social impact activities supports our commitment to creating a better tomorrow.

  • Fundraising and volunteering activities, by supporting local, national and international charities
