Our economic impacts 2007-2008

Brook Lyndhurst is a private, limited commercial enterprise established and run to explore and understand the economics of sustainability and the nature of a sustainable economy, mainly through a mix of funded project work and some un-funded research.

Internally, the Director’s fulfil their legal obligations for financial probity; by conducting the company’s financial affairs in a fair, open and honest way; by paying all invoices promptly; and we are as open as possible about how the company’s income is distributed. Total gross turnover in 2006/2007 was £877,647.

We contribute to the wider economy by creating employment, paying taxes, entering into partnerships, fostering networks, contributing to debate and through our choice of work.
