We operate our business to achieve the maximum possible “social value”. This means trying to achieve the maximum social, economic and environmental well-being in everything we do, and avoiding causing harm. We do this by:

  • Procuring local goods and services where possible and practicable.
  • Using public transport as standard, and only using our own vehicles when public transport is not a viable option; using technology to prevent unnecessary travel, such as video conferencing.
  • Recycling and using recycled products, for paper, packaging, glass, printer ink cartridges, batteries, etc; procuring socially-responsible goods such as certified Fairtrade and Ecocert Solidaire.
  • Using energy efficient devices and bulbs, and ensuring that unused items are switched off and not left on standby.
  • Paying more than the living wage to all our associates & support staff.
  • Using tools like ChromeLens to ensure our digital presence is accessible to those with visual impairments
