We further demonstrate our commitment to CSR through our customer care policy, supply chain relationships, people development, safe systems of work and environmental practices.

We continue to deliver health and safety standards that protect all who are engaged or affected by our work, through a programme of training and the provision of safe systems of work, which are monitored at all management levels.

Environment
We are committed to reducing our impact on the environment arising from our business activities. We operate an effective environmental management system to minimise our impact and continuously looking at new opportunities to drive long term sustainability.

Customers
We recognise that our business is dependent upon our customers so we conduct our business relationships with integrity and reliability and honour our trading commitments. We always aim to build long term relationships, and to work together to improve our ability to meet customers’ needs.

Supply Chain
We work closely with our suppliers to ensure ethical procurement and work together as partners to optimise environmental performance and customer service. In addition, where possible we source products and services from local suppliers and contractors.
