At Sweett Group, we recognise that our operations and services we provide have a significant impact on the communities and environments in which we operate. Our strategy of long-term, sustainable growth is directly linked to our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) efforts.
Being a good corporate citizen also involves creating an environment that facilitates staff participation in charitable and community related activities – both in their professional capability and in their spare time.
The Group's CSR efforts focus on four main areas:
Our clients work with us because of the quality of our staff and the added value their expertise and knowledge represents. We see our CSR work as a mechanism for boosting morale, fosteringteam spirit and encouraging healthy living, all of which contribute to creating happier, healthier members of staff.
The construction, maintenance and operation of property and infrastructure developments accounts for a significant portion of the world’s annual carbon emissions. Our consultants play an important role in reducing these emissions by working with our clients to minimise the environmental impact of projects throughout their lifecycle.
We also work across our own estate of offices and fleets to ensure energy and water consumption is kept to a minimum and recycling takes place where possible, minimising our waste to landfill.
Operating within the built environment we have a responsibility to ensure we engage with and play an active role in the local communities in which we operate. We do this through the development of the services we offer our clients and by building long-term relationships with key local stakeholders through our community outreach and charitable activities.
The Group and its staff have supported a number of charities across the world, covering causes such as cancer care, men’s health and animal welfare. In January 2012, after a significant staff consultation process, the Board of Directors adopted the theme children and youth in the community as the Group’s global charitable cause.
