We are committed to our corporate social responsibility and understand the importance of conducting our business in a sustainable, equitable and community-focused way that has social, economic and environmental benefits. We are accredited with ISO9001 and ISO14001.
We are concerned about the environment and ensure that good environmental management is an integral and fundamental part of our business strategy.
We endeavour to carry out our business activities during normal working hours in order to limit the impact of noise pollution, dust pollution and CO2 emissions. Basic principles of no revving up, not leaving vehicles idle with engines running and adherence to speed limits are adopted.
Our vehicles meet the required low emission zone standards and are all regularly serviced. All routes and modes of transport are planned carefully in order to minimise costs and improve efficiency.
We support local sourcing of products and services and encourage a ‘cradle to cradle’ approach to procurement.
We are an equal opportunities employer and do not tolerate any form of discrimination on the grounds of sex, race, nationality, ethnic or national origin, religion or belief, marital status, sexual orientation, age or disability. 85% of employees live within a 5 mile radius, all have full employment contracts (no zero hour contracts) and are paid above the living wage.
We are committed to ensuring that our activities do not have a negative impact on the environment, community or its employees and business associates. In line with its responsibility as an employer, purchaser of goods and services and a manager of transport, energy, water and waste, we actively review our systems and policies so that our sustainability goals are maintained and/or improved.
