Corporate Social Responsibility
We take our Corporate Social Responsibilities seriously.
Our philosophy is based on the belief that, if we are to be a worthwhile firm, we must have a purpose for our existence. Not only the everyday purpose to earn a 'just' profit, but beyond that, to improve in some way the quality of the community in which we live and work.
We hope that, through the quality of our products and services, and the manner in which we conduct our day to day contacts, with truth, justice and fairness, we do, in some way, communicate that these qualities are renewable each day, making for a better firm, better citizens and better communities.
We strive to serve our customers, our communities and each other to the best of our abilities.
So, we work in partnership with the community, in which we operate, wherever we can.
We encourage innovative approaches and continuing development and application of best practice, so that we can offer truly worthwhile products and services.
We ensure we have high levels of performance in areas such as health and safety, the environment and equal opportunities, so that we are acting responsibly at all times..
We encourage increased awareness, open constructive dialogue and trust with people wherever we can.
We try to create a policy framework which encourages and enables responsible behaviour at all times.
We support the strategy for sustainable development, effective protection of the environment, prudent use of natural resources and stable levels of economic growth and employment to ensure a better quality of life for everyone.
We try to 'buy locally' wherever we can and to use local skilled labour, local subcontractors and to appreciate the importance of local knowledge for the benefit of all.
