With the growth of our business and the increasing importance that we are placing on sustainability, we have formed a Sustainability Committee. Chaired by the Chief Executive, it comprises members of the management team and the Company Secretary. It meets quarterly to define objectives, agree strategies and review progress. We have a robust Sustainability Policy which is reviewed annually by the Board and is available here.
We encompass the core strands of sustainability – environment, social and economic performance – within a bespoke management system which includes the basic elements of a policy, identification of risks and opportunities, measurable objectives and targets, an audit programme and reporting.
We base our sustainability strategy on the core factors of community, stakeholders, environment, suppliers and employees.
