Recently, as a consultancy, we made the decision to decline an opportunity to work with a new customer because of their involvement in animal laboratory testing, within their buildings.
This was not the first time we have decided to take such a stance and the decision was made after careful consideration, but fundamentally felt the right thing to do. It was communicated in an open and professional manner and we were thanks for our honesty.
