Being a responsible enterprise is crucial to our continued success. Over the years we have worked in partnership with many of the UK’s biggest companies, earning trust through our commitment and working practise.
Our Corporate Social Responsibility Policy reflects this and is an integral part of our business strategy.We therefore conduct our business activities in an economically, socially and environmentally responsible manner.
All employees adhere to a standard code, particularly when working on client site. This code of conduct is our way of articulating our responsibilities, obligations and the way we conduct business.
We have a strong and robust People Strategy. Whether in the office or out in the field, our knowledge management system allows all staff to have access to best practice, drawn from the knowledge and experience we have all gained from working with others.
We are introducing environmentally friendly selection criteria to outsourced products and are extending our current recycling policy to include a wider range of materials. We are committed to increasing the awareness of the company’s existing environmental policies.
We endeavour to support local businesses through our purchasing. We also have three official charity affiliations, one global, one national and one local. We have included further details on our Charity Support, below.
Where possible we purchase supplies from ethical sources as a visible contribution to the wider community.
This year, we are committed to supporting the following charities…
WaterAid is an international NGO dedicated exclusively to the provision of safe domestic water, sanitation and hygiene education to the world’s poorest people. These basic services are essential to life, without them vulnerable communities are trapped in the stranglehold of disease and poverty.
