  • Health & safety

    We are committed to preventing work-related injury and ill health among our employees and visitors to our premises and to providing a safe and healthy working environment. We consider that health and safety is a responsibility at least equal in importance to that of any other function of our business activities. Our aim is that we can fully engage all colleagues in developing and maintaining a robust health & safety environment so that they always go home safe.

  • Ethical trading

    We are taking steps to improve the working conditions and rights of the people in our global supply chains. We are committed to ensuring all aspects of our trading are ethical.

  • Business continuity

    Committed to ensuring business-critical operations continue during a disruption, we have fully assessed the risks to business continuity and have developed effective control measures and robust disaster recovery plans.

  • Supply chains

    Our goal is to be the best provider to our customers and the best customer to our providers. To ensure we can remain our customers’ preferred supplier, we will develop a supply chain which has sufficient breadth and depth to remain sustainable for the long-term.

  • Quality

    In order to remain as a supplier of choice for our customers we need to ensure that the products we buy, the work that we do ourselves and the way we deliver to our customers all meet a consistent and high level of quality. We ensure this through our quality accreditations including IS0 9001, ASEN 9100 and ASEN 9120.

Ethical behaviour underpins our sustainability activities We want to look after both our business, the planet and our communities for future generations

Companies can play a key role in accelerating the transition to a climate-neutral and more sustainable economy. To play this role, however, they need governance practices that ensure they understand the impact of their activities on the world around them, and take society and the environment into account when making business decisions.
