Environmental, Social and Governance

Creating a sustainable future

As an FCA-regulated business, good governance is at the heart of everything we do. This includes our approach to CSR and ESG which is delivered through a carefully designed policy framework and KPIs, and underpinned by our corporate culture and values. Our progress on ESG is monitored regularly, reported to the Board, and published in our Annual Report.

Our CSR & ESG framework focuses on 5 pillars, around which we focus activities throughout the year, as well as tracking a range of KPIs to ensure we are improving our ESG posture over time. Our ESG pillars are:








Customers are our primary focus.


Results matter, create value everyday.


Energy is contagious, share it!


Developing our people makes us different.


Invent the solution, be proactive.


Together we can build the business.

Delivering a difference - How are we unique?

Women in Finance

A pledge for gender balance across financial service

What is the ‘Women in Finance Charter’?

The Women in Finance Charter was introduced following the 'Empowering Productivity' report into harnessing the talents of women in finance. It is a commitment by HM Treasury and signatory firms to work together to build a more balanced and fairer financial services industry. This review focused on the talent pipeline at the executive population below board level and found that in 2015, women made up only 14% of the Executive Committees in the Financial Services sector.

The Charter reflects the government’s aspiration to see gender balance at all levels across financial services firms. A balanced workforce is good for business – it is good for customers, for profitability, productivity, and workplace culture, and is increasingly attractive for investors.

The Enra Pledge:

In 2019 Enra Specialist Finance proudly signed the charter to underline its existing commitment supporting the progression of women into senior roles in the financial services sector.

We pledge to create diversity by:

  • Having one member of our senior executive team who is responsible and accountable for gender diversity and inclusion
  • Setting internal targets for gender diversity in our senior management
  • Publishing progress annually against these targets in reports on our website
  • Having an intention to ensure the pay of the senior executive team is linked to delivery against these internal targets on gender diversity

When we joined the Charter in 2019, we wanted to increase our gender diversity to 33% within the senior management population by September 2023. As of December 2022, we have 29% female representation in senior management.

We chose the target of 33% as we wanted a target that represented meaningful difference being delivered within the bounds of what is reasonable given the low turnover in the senior management group. Our target requires 2 existing male members of the senior management team to be replaced by females, or alternatively for us to hire 3 additional females into the senior management team by 2023.

This is possible but stretching, given the growth ambitions of the firm, and the low level of management turnover anticipated, but it would represent a meaningful difference to the status quo.

To achieve this we have already taken a series of practical steps to ensure the firm is measuring & monitoring diversity, actively seeking female candidates for shortlists when vacancies arise and seeking to bring our diversity policy into the heart of our business by establishing a colleague-led ESG forum.

We are committed to maximising the opportunity for all candidates and ensuring that Enra is a welcoming place of work for everyone.

Food for all

Food for All (Watford branch) is our local food bank and community kitchen located within 2 miles of our new office facility. When we moved into the local area, we made a commitment to give back to our local community and we found this amazing organisation.

Environmental Impact

As an office-based business trading within the UK, our overall environmental impact is already small.

However, we are committed to ensuring that we take steps to reduce our overall impact on the environment wherever we can. To that end, each year we measure our impact and report this in our annual report. The primary driver of our emissions is the energy consumption within our office, with a secondary driver being the emissions from our grey fleet. We are actively exploring ways to reduce our environmental impact, including increasing our recycling capability, paper-saving and power-saving options within the office, and car-pooling to reduce grey fleet emissions.

As a specialist lender we are also keen to promote more environmentally sustainable properties through our lending activities. To that end our Development Finance team regularly work with developers using cutting-edge sustainable building practices. Our Buy-to-Let and Residential lending teams also offer specialist products with incentives for properties with an EPC-rating of “C” and above.
