Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)

Our Impact Score Card

Environmental Impact

We are passionate about our environment - it's the only one we've got. Our efforts and aspirations for People & Planet are summarised in our CSR strategy below.

We have gone the extra mile to re-use and recycle wherever possible and have measures in place to reduce our waste to landfill and recycling centres and decrease our carbon footprint.

Our current estimated annual figures are:

  • 600 kg - recycled waste
  • 400 kg - to landfill

Carbon footprint: all our staff lives within 15 miles of the office, which helps reduce the impact of commuting.

Our aim

  • Reduce kg of waste/recycling by at least 5% in 2020
  • Promote a Cycle/walk to work scheme

Business with purpose

We have always sought to do what we can to assist purpose-driven organisations. In 2018, charitable, not-for-profit, governmental and public-owned organisations accounted for approximately 18% of our business and wherever possible we have taken into account the limited budgets typically available to them. We are happy to have provided technical training for charities and other beneficial institutions such as UNICEF, Welcome Trust, OECD, SafeLives at reduced rates.

Our aim

  • To continue to work with more social enterprises, not-for-profit and charitable organisations in 2020.
  • To set up a volunteering programme for our staff to positively impact the local community.

CSR

We will always give more weight to eco-friendly products and services over price. For example: we recently switched to a green printing company for all our course materials - such as having our notepads printed on 100% recycled paper, with a water-less process.

Furthermore, our web-hosting and energy providers are both 100% green energy suppliers.

Our aim

To continue monitoring our supply chain for environmental impact and people, in line with our CSR ethos - and to hopefully inspire others on the way.
