We take our responsibility to the environment and the communities in which we work very seriously and have a dedicated team who are responsible for safety and our impact on the environment.
We're an ISO 14001 (Environmental Management System) accredited company and believe that working ethically, safely and in an environmentally conscious way makes a tangible difference to our customers, staff and shareholders.
Carbon Trust Standard for CO2 reduction
We're thrilled to have achieved the Carbon Trust Standard for CO2 reduction. Figures following the Carbon Trust assessment have shown a 15% turnover reduction up to 31/12/2014 across all of our UK operations including all sites.
Customers and the marketplace
We fully comply with the Bribery Act. We take a zero tolerance position on unethical behaviour and complying with our ethical trading policy, we work with our suppliers to ensure products we bring to market are ethically sourced and sustainable.
We are fully registered and compliant with all the government agencies regarding carbon emissions, waste and environment - we are a low risk polluter and low carbon output business. We manage our deliveries using route optimisation software and are continually upgrading our fleet of HGV vehicles using efficient engines to deliver low emissions.
Our ethos is simple, that our employees should work in a safe and healthy workplace. We are proud to be fully accredited to the OHSAS 18001 standard (The International Standard for Health and Safety Management).
Our teams across the country support a number of local and national charities (chosen by our employees) and we support them by matching their contributions. We are very conscious of the communities that live around us and so we work closely with our landlords and local authorities to minimise our impact on the surrounding communities.
All companies working in the alcoholic drinks industry should take into account the impact that the products that they sell may have on individuals and society at large. We clearly understand our responsibilities towards alcohol consumption and are a member of the Portman Group as well as being registered with the Drink Aware scheme.
