Our aim is to minimise the impact of our business on the environment, have a positive effect on society and seek to work with other organisations who embrace these objectives. We aim to use natural resources responsibly, work with community projects and encourage and educate our employees in these goals. We value diversity, fairness, justice and equality throughout all our engagements both internally and externally.

In the community

We donate to Crash and other Charities to tackle homelessness
In the office
We recycle office materials (paper, print cartridges etc) wherever possible
Travel is a necessity in our business, but we monitor all business travel and offset the carbon produced at carbonfootprint.com In 2015 we travelled 51476 miles creating an estimated 15.4t of CO2 and offset 16t by planting trees. We aim to reduce the mileage per employee per year.
As holders of the Work Place Wellbeing Award we are aware that keeping our staff members hydrated helps them to perform at their very best throughout the work day. As a result, we decided to invest in watercoolers from AquaAid.
Our unique relationship with AquAid has also given our company the opportunity to help those less fortunate than ourselves, because with each purchase an automatic donation is made to the Africa Trust. These funds are used to build ‘Elephant Pumps’ - a modified version of an age old Chinese rope pulley system. One such pump is currently being installed in Africa on our behalf and it will be a much needed source of clean and fresh drinking water for many.
Our company’s name will be proudly displayed on our well and we look forward to adding some photos and letters of thanks from the villagers to our site in the near future. To date AquAid have built over 5,000 such Elephant Pumps across parts of Zimbabwe, Malawi and Liberia; and have donated in excess of £10 million to charity.
