The annual Norfolk Business awards celebrate the very best of our county's companies and the people who drive them. We were very pleased to sponsor the Small Business award this year, which was won by Indigo Swan.

Well done to all the category winners!

Environmental, Social and Governance Policy (ESG) may not crop up in most people’s daily conversations, but it is something which is relevant to all of us, in one way or another.
ESG looks at the question of sustainability and the ethical and social impact of any investment. Properties which are let to tenants who fall short of the ESG principles could have a lower valuation than other properties which have a high ESG rating. Companies can create value simply by increasing their ESG score.

We thoroughly enjoy and value our work with SMEs (small to medium sized enterprises) in the region - so it seemed highly appropriate that the firm should sponsor the Small Business of the year category of this year's Norfolk Business Awards.

Despite being banned in late 1999, Asbestos is still a problem for property owners and tenants alike.
Asbestos was historically used in the construction of buildings for over 200 years, particularly due to its fire resistant qualities. In the 1970s research emerged revealing asbestos as a health hazard and over the next 20 years it was generally phased out and then ultimately banned. A large number of buildings still contain asbestos containing materials and as such it is as relevant an issue today as it has ever been.
