Environmental, Social and Governance
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.
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.
