HP has named Banner an Amplify Impact 5-Star Catalyst Partner for driving sustainability!

The program touched all parts of the Banner business, including:

- Our Sales teams, who completed a combined 65 hours of Sustainability Basics and Fundamentals training modules
- Our Merchandise and Specials teams, who completed 60 'HP Life' personal development training programs
- Our entire HR team who undertook 'Empower People' training, and who worked with a third party consultancy to further Banner's Diversity, Equality, and Inclusion programmes
- Banner's Head of CSR and Social Value worked with a third-party consultant to produce a Decarbonisation Plan
... and more to demonstrate our commitment to our people and sustainability.

At the time of award, December 2022, Banner was the first partner worldwide to achieve this accreditation, and we are immensely proud of the 5-Star ranking that we were awarded.
