ESG PLEDGE

Rapid Relocate is all too aware that no organisation operates in isolation. Indeed our business prides itself on the relationships it builds, and interaction it has, with employees, clients, customers, suppliers and stakeholders. Our ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) plan, summarised below, is about managing these relationships to produce an overall positive impact on society, whilst adding value to the business and those involved with it.

Introduction

Environmental and social issues sit at the heart of modern life, from our impact on the planet, to our place within our local communities, and to our health and wellbeing. Within the workplace, these issues extend to how a company is run: its governance, its values and its transparency. Having a straightforward and effective plan in place to manage the risks and opportunities presented by ESG, is a springboard for future growth and helps us to positively contribute to the world around us. 

Risks and opportunities

Aligned with the three pillars and key themes of ESG, we have carefully analysed the threats we are exposed to if we do not take action – and the opportunities afforded us if we do – and developed a table (linked here) to help inform our ESG strategy. We have then devised a plan for how we can address each pillar.

Environmental

Our goal:

To minimise any adverse effects of what we do and how we operate that these subsequently may have on the environment.

Our commitment:

  • To minimise our CO2 emissions from our operations through adoption of green and renewable energy throughout our business and fleet. 

  • To reduce the waste we send to landfill by both increasing our recycling, and educating our people to make better choices about purchasing, re-use and responsible disposal of all consumables and assets. 

  • To ensure that all physical technologies and electronic devices are disposed of in line with Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment recycling (WEEE) protocol.  

  • To increase our purchasing from social enterprises and sustainable suppliers.

  • To maintain a dedicated team within the company to both address and drive our ‘Green’ agenda.  

Social

Our goal:

To delight our stakeholders by continuously improving our working, ethical and social practices.

Our commitment:

  • To maintain our IIP Gold approved employer standard and be recommended as a great place to work.

  • Promote an inclusive work place and be seen as an employer that embraces our responsibilities with regards to employee wellbeing, sustainability and diversity

  • Provide our staff with a work place that is not only professional but fun, whilst encouraging personal development and innovation.

  • To maintain a dedicated, appropriately trained team within the company to provide mental health and wellbeing support to our people.   

  • Be noticed by our clients and customers for our excellence in customer service and innovation to continuously add value.

  • Drive awareness on sustainability and sustainable options to all of stakeholders, our customers, staff and our suppliers both through our own efforts and achievements and also through education.

  • Be seen as a “giving” organisation to our local community and wider charitable organisations

Governance

Our goal:

To ensure we lead the company with transparency, integrity and compliance. 

Our commitment:

  • Ensure all of our policies are up to date and reviewed annually in line with new ethical practices

  • To file all accounts and documents of incorporation with Companies House to required deadlines. 

  • Annually review our key suppliers’ social and environmental practices to ensure they remain in line with our overall company commitment framework

  • Lead our company with a diverse and open management structure 

  • Ensure all staff are paid in according to National Living wage and all can participate in a reward programme when the company over achieves 

  • To complete regular and formal analysis of the macro and micro business environment of potential business risks and opportunities.

  • To embed our DELIGHT values throughout the company to both ensure a consistent approach to all aspects of our business, and to help achieve support for our ESG commitment.
