Corporate Social Responsibility
"I am proud to sponsor Indesser’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) strategy, policy and activity. CSR, and the Social Value it delivers, are core to what we do. Not only is it the right thing to do, but there are important expectations of suppliers to the public sector to deliver Social Value. We passionately believe that focusing on economic, social and environmental wellbeing in our work creates direct benefits for our business, the communities and regions we work in, our people, and our suppliers.
As part of our commitment to CSR and Social Value we wanted to make our CSR policy available to view by our customers, stakeholders and suppliers. The Indesser Board is committed to this activity and we have dedicated resources to it, including appointing a CSR committee to coordinate our efforts. The committee meets monthly to drive forward our activity and reports progress and outcomes to the Board every quarter.
We recognise that Indesser is a relatively small business, directly employing around 20 people. As a result, our direct social impact can only go so far. However, our supply chain is significant in size, is geographically spread across the UK, and has the power to deliver greater impact in the communities in which we work. So a key focus of our CSR activity is collaboration with our partners to amplify our social impact.
It is of course impossible to ignore the impact that COVID-19 has had on our daily lives – on running businesses, on our families, and on the communities we live in. Now more than ever the importance of organisations playing an active role in the communities that they serve is paramount.
I look forward to sharing our progress with you and the social impact that we are delivering.'
