Corporate Social Responsibility

Wetherspoon defines corporate social responsibility (CSR) as running a sustainable and profitable business by supporting our people, their communities, the environment, nominated charities and businesses with which we interact.

All over the UK, Wetherspoon is a central part of local communities, bringing benefits to millions of people in their daily life, through social enjoyment or direct/indirect employment. The backbone of our growth has been the provision of the highest standards in all of our outlets, but we also understand that our role in society doesn’t begin and end simply by serving quality food and drink.


The board of Wetherspoon has made CSR a part of the day-to-day culture of the business.


A corporate social responsibility plan has been developed, via engagement with staff, and approved by the board. The plan identifies five key areas: our people; community and charity; energy and the environment; ethical working; health. The plan sets out to communicate the following in each area: our aim; objectives and measurements; key achievements; ongoing priorities.
