Culture & Values

Corporate Responsibility

A company is more than the products it makes or the service it delivers. We’re passionate about this. How we conduct ourselves with people, with the community around us, with the wider world: these go to the heart of everything we do. That means treating people fairly and equally, actively seeking out ways to boost community involvement and using resources efficiently to minimise environmental impact. For us, Corporate Responsibility starts by believing that what we do matters – and applying the same exactingly high standards here as we do in the work we carry out for our clients.

We deliver that in a number of ways.


No business operates in a vacuum. We’re all connected to the communities within which we live and work.

We regularly provide extensive pro-bono support to local businesses, charities and community organisations.

We also actively encourage staff to involve themselves in community-focused causes.


Our staff take part in the Belfast Marathon each year in support of local charity, which for the past year has been Angel Wishes NI.

Staff also regularly participate in local volunteer days; and every year the firm raises funds and donates toys to the St Vincent de Paul and Salvation Army joint Family Appeal.

Environmental Policy

We acknowledge our responsibility to carry out our business in a sustainable way, and we continue to strive for best practice in terms of:

  • green energy purchasing
  • carbon and waste reduction
  • sourcing an ethical supply chain

There’s always more that can be done, we know. But we’re getting there.

Together we are Mills Selig

At Mills Selig we ensure that our clients feel very much a part of who we are.

Let’s work together
