Step 1


 
Please submit all four forms below to tell us who will be your company's contact for each of the four TTC roles:  
  • Senior Signatory Contact - This is the person who joins the TTC on your company's behalf.  We do not prescribe who that person is in your company, but recommend that it is someone who makes sense both internally and externally to be leading on the TTC commitments.
  • Principal Contact - This person is responsible for liaising with the TTC directly and will be included in all our communications with your company. While this can be the senior executive, companies are free to nominate another staff member to liaise with us.
  • Data Contact - This person will need to complete the annual data return in September which feeds into our Annual Benchmarking Report. This information is protected by NDA and will be aggregated and anonymised in our annual reports. For more information on our annual data submission requirement please see our FAQs.
  • PR Contact - this person is responsible for liaising with the TTC in relation to logos, quotes, press releases, social media etc.

IMPORTANT: Please submit a contact name for every role (even if this is the same person covering all TTC roles). Before submitting each form please ensure you have consent to share all details. Upon submission of each form below, a confirmation email will be sent to each person to welcome them to the TTC with a brief description of what the role involves.
