Corporate Social Responsibility

CSR

As a maturing company, we understand that our actions have an impact on social, environmental and economic levels beyond our four walls. Through being mindful of these impacts, we believe we can both improve the quality and performance of our core organisational processes, whilst also making a positive contribution to society. A strong sense of Corporate Social Responsibility is to the benefit of those both within and outside of our business. 

Our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) policy focuses on and monitors three main areas with the aim of improving our environment whilst contributing to the well-being of the communities in which we operate.

Wellbeing 
  • Diversity & Inclusion – providing training and awareness for all staff. 

  • Establishing and maintaining suitable work conditions for all. 

  • Championing a supportive and respectful environment. 

  • Encouraging and providing structured development opportunities both personally and professionally . 

Environmental – Cornwallis Elt ‘Green’ Policies
  • Driving Green initiatives – through technology as well as processes.  

  • Extensively using recycling facilities. 

  • Focusing on energy efficiency. 

Community/Charity 
  • Making annual company charity contributions . 

  • Regular sporting and charitable events – examples include the Standard Chartered 5k Great City Race, London Marathon, Go Sober October/Stoptober, Veganuary, The National 3 Peaks and Yorkshire 3 Peaks hikes.

Some charities we have supported recently include: Futuremakers, a global initiative to tackle inequality and promote greater economic inclusion for young people in our communities, The Media Trust, a charity working in partnership with the creative industry to give marginalized groups a stronger voice, Alzheimers Society and The Prince’s Trust Mentoring Scheme, helping young people into education, training or work.
