RICS Regulation

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors is one of a small number of privileged & respected professions that are self-regulated, as opposed to being regulated by government. Consumer protection is one reason the RICS is recently celebrated 150 years of holding a Royal Charter.

RICS Ethics requires among other things that surveyors:

• Act with integrity
• Provide a high standard of service
• Act in a way that promotes trust in the profession
• Treat others with respect
• Take responsibility

Corporate & Social Responsibility

CSR relates to how companies manage the business process to produce a positive impact on society, both environmental and social.

With the background of a Scottish Government seeking to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from buildings by a massive 81% between 2015 and 2032, everyone and every business will be impacted. As Chartered Building Surveyors we are intrinsically involved through the advice we offer clients.

We also provide and actively encourage service and support of local organisations and charities.

Although businesses must focus on achieving commercial success, we also appreciate our business impacts the economy, society and our environment. Accordingly we appreciate and take account of ethics, respect for people, communities and culture within our business strategy.

Environmental Policy

Bruce Shaw recognise the importance of protecting the environment and encouraging all clients to think carefully about the choices they make and their effect upon society as a whole.  Protecting our environment is a core part of Bruce Shaw’s values, a basic principle and sound business practice.

Our policy encompasses compliance, pollution, waste, culture and performance.

In a professional capacity we strive to specify environmentally friendly products/components and or systems, raise awareness of environmental issues and ensure materials are re-cycled and new materials sourced renewably.
