As with any enlightened company, Bath Leasehold Management is acutely aware of its corporate social responsibilities and position within the commercial community in which it operates. In addition to supporting various charitable organisations, the business welcomes the opportunity to contribute where possible to deserving local causes and initiatives. These endeavours add a sense of ‘doing good’ to the company culture which, in turn, inspires both the team and external stakeholders alike.
Sarah’s love of animals provides the motivation for the company’s active support of two significant charities committed to their welfare. A significant percentage of the businesses first-year trading profits were donated to the Salisbury-based Coppershell Animal Farm Sanctuary which provides care, shelter and attention to abandoned, neglected or unwanted animals. (www.coppershellfarmsanctuary.co.uk). In addition to contributing financially, Sarah is also a Trustee of the Animal Justice Project which promotes veganism and the rights of animals to be treated as equals to ourselves.

Running any enterprise without due consideration to the environment is no longer an option especially in the property sector. Bath Leasehold Management comply with all health and safety and environmental legislation to minimise any negative impact on either human health or the planet. Where possible, buildings are maintained using sustainable materials and all waste is recycled or disposed off as dictated by current regulations. Chosen suppliers and contractors are encouraged to demonstrate their own environmental credentials and always operate ethically and responsibly. This is particularly true with regards to appointing pest controllers and traditional trades.
Embracing a sustainable strategy provides Bath Leasehold Management with a demonstrable platform on which to deliver its property management services. This strategy is reflecting in the company’s infrastructure be it by only using electric vehicles or by operating from energy-efficient premises. The integrity of older buildings is ensured by preserving period features and sympathetic renovations, whilst modern properties are maintained by using the most sustainable materials available. Investing in all facets of sustainability is an instrumental pillar of the company’s service provision.
