CSR statement of policy
Our Corporate & Social Responsibility Policy
As a responsible employer and contractor working in the built environment sector, we believe that the long-term future of the company is best served by respecting the interests of all our stakeholders. That includes customers, staff, suppliers and the wider community both at home and aboard where appropriate.
Our Managing Director, Eric Newman holds ultimate responsible for the implementation of the company policy. The directors and shareholders will further provide the necessary resources to operate and continue the development of the CSR. Participation of the staff in the successful operation of the Corporate & Social Responsibility policy is seen as the key to its success and this is achieved by providing information, consulting and training.
We look actively for opportunities to improve the environment and to contribute to the well-being of the communities in which we trade. Our CSR policy (document) sets out the principles we strive to follow and the programmes we are involved in. They include:-
- Shared responsibility
- Sustainable progress
- The Environment
- Health, Safety & Welfare
- Standards of Business Conduct
- Honesty and accountability
- Demonstrable compliance
We review our policies and procedures in a regular ongoing manner that will result in improvements of our performance.
