Friends Provident has just published a Corporate Responsibility
Review and a more detailed online Corporate Responsibility
Performance Report 07 - Living Corporate Responsibility.
The printed CR Review explores the material issues facing
the business - combining in-depth articles for the core strategic
issues of trust and confidence, responsible investment and
financial capability, with summaries of the business operating
issues which are covered in more detail in the online report.
