Goodbody and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)

CSR has always been embedded in our company, stemming from a lasting commitment to act responsibly and operate with the utmost integrity in the management of assets entrusted to us. The Goodbody CSR Framework sets out the standards that we hold ourselves up to in relation to how we deal with our employees, customers, suppliers and society at large and guides the activities we pursue. Given the importance of quality advice, knowledge sharing, research and expertise in our business model, education is a core theme of our CSR programme that threads through a number of our activities.

Spotlight on a CSR Initiative: The Goodbody Student Managed Fund

 

With over 30 staff volunteers, the Goodbody Student Managed Fund, now in its sixth year, supports an investment fund competition and education programme that spans the academic year in conjunction with five universities in Ireland.

Our Charity Partner: An Cosán

In 2019, Goodbody chose to partner with An Cosán, the community education charity because of its emphasis on education and the support it offers its local community. As well as fundraising, sharing our in-house skills and expertise to the organisation is an important part of this partnership and a crucial staff engagement initiative. Goodbody and An Cosán were announced as joint winners of The People’s Choice Award as part of The Charity Excellence Awards 2020 from Charities Institute Ireland. Not only do these awards celebrate excellence across charity partnerships - we are so proud that this award also reflects the voice of the entire community.
