Centre for Responsible Business

05 July 2017

A major new research centre aimed at promoting responsible business will be launched in Birmingham.

Lloyds Banking Group has teamed up with the University of Birmingham for a five-year, £2.5 million programme to transform responsible business practice in the banking industry and beyond.

It will be housed in the university’s business school and called the Lloyds Banking Group Centre for Responsible Business.

The bank said this was the largest single research grant the school had received and it would address the many issues of embedding responsible business practice in the banking industry.

Its core aims are to become a leading European hub for responsible business research, shape the development of responsible business practice, have an impact on diversity and ethical good-standing of new entrants into the banking sector and engage with partner businesses and their staff training programmes.
