Hambleside Danelaw’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) policy sets out the framework under which we interact with all stakeholders: employees, customers, suppliers and other parties. It embraces every aspect of operating our business today: economic, environmental and social, demonstrating our values, beliefs and commitments.
Our CSR policy applies throughout the Hambleside Group and governs our approach to all activities.
Hambleside Danelaw Limited’s Board of Directors is responsible for monitoring compliance with the CSR policy.
We are committed to ensuring that we always conduct our business according to rigorous ethical, professional and legal standards. This extends beyond the manufacturing process to the technical expertise we share and our overall high levels of customer service.
We always aim to provide a competitive, fair and safe working environment within which all staff have equal opportunity to develop and advance their careers. We will not tolerate bullying, discrimination or harassment.
We appreciate that our continued growth is dependent upon our customers’ satisfaction with the products and services that we provide. As such, our goal is to offer the very highest standards of quality as competitively-priced as possible.
Our policy is to minimise, wherever practicable, the impact on the environment which arises as a result of our manufacturing and distribution operations. We actively encourage environmental responsibility amongst all of our stakeholders.
We are committed to achieving continuous improvement in health and safety performance. Every member of staff receives full training and undergoes regular health and safety assessments to minimise the risk of an accident occurring at any stage of the manufacturing, distribution or installation processes.
We consider our suppliers and associates as ‘partners’, and work with them to comply with Hambleside Danelaw’s environmental, quality and customer policies during the production and distribution of our products.
While we will always operate in a competitive manner, we will do so fairly and always in compliance with best practice and legal requirements.
We seek to deliver sustainable growth through effective and prudent use of the Group’s assets.
We comply with all applicable laws, including the relevant accounting standards, to ensure our financial integrity.
We are committed to being a responsible corporate citizen and encourage our stakeholders to conduct themselves in a similar manner. We understand that our business activities may in varying degrees have a direct or indirect impact on the local areas in which we operate, but we work hard to manage that impact responsibly.
It is our policy to conduct all of our business in an honest and ethical manner. We take a zero-tolerance approach to bribery and corruption. We are committed to acting professionally, fairly and with integrity in all our business dealings and relationships, wherever we operate. We have implemented and enforced effective systems to counter bribery.
We uphold all legislation relevant to countering bribery and corruption, bound by UK laws such as the Bribery Act 2010, in respect of our conduct both at home and abroad.
This policy applies to all individuals working at all levels and grades, including senior managers, officers, directors, employees (whether permanent, fixed-term or temporary), consultants, contractors, trainees, seconded staff, homeworkers, casual workers and agency staff, volunteers, interns, agents, sponsors, or any other person associated with us, or any of our subsidiaries or their employees, wherever they are located.
