Phil Jones, managing director of Brother UK, said: “Our job as the UK subsidiary of a multinational is to ‘think local’ on all elements of our citizenship activity. And with our headquarters in Europe and Japan, we must consider all elements of our global citizenship too. I am pleased to report that in the last year, we have continued to make excellent progress both internally and externally.”
