Environmental, Social and Governance

Environmental values

Focus for the future

We are conscious that, through our working practices, we utilise carbon and generate waste. It is our firm commitment to keep both to an absolute minimum. For this reason, we have an Environmental Management System certified to ISO 14001:2015 standards and that is subject to external audit at least annually.

Planting trees for a greener future

To mark the anniversary each year of every employee, we plant a tree. We believe that this is a great way to say thank you, to give back to the environment and to raise environmental awareness.

It is our plan to plant 1,620 trees each year, with this increasing year on year as our organisation grows.

So far, we have planted 360 trees.

Recycling 1 tonne of paper saves 17 trees
17 trees supply enough oxygen for two people to breathe for a year.

Health & safety

We have a dedicated Health & Safety Team and are committed to maintaining the highest standards at our offices, on site and anywhere we work.

Equality, Diversity & Inclusion

We treat our employees, clients and stakeholders fairly and with respect, and work collaboratively without discrimination.

We are committed to the personal and professional development of our people, helping them to acquire the skills they need to reach their full potential. We aim to be a place where people want to work, where they can have fun and still provide clients with a great service.


Wellness is an important part of our life at Silver. We hold regular in-house events to promote good health and wellbeing, on subjects including Movember, breast cancer, the menopause and RevivR training provided by the British Heart Foundation.


We hold wellness days covering a range of topics chosen by our colleagues and led by experts. These images capture the essence of our commitment to well-being throughout the year.

Supporting charities, communities and schools

We actively support local communities, businesses and charities. This includes helping with community initiatives, providing work experience for schools and colleges, supporting local employment and training, mentoring, charity events and sponsorship.
