Thank you from the Charter Co-Chairs
2021 has been a tremendous year for the Charter. We have published our first annual report, set our strategy and announced our 30% by 2030 ambition. As a volunteer body, we could not have achieved any of this without the substantial support of the many people who have dedicated their time and expertise to helping us this year. We would like to thank you all – together we are making a difference.
