Sustainable behaviour means taking an eco-friendly approach to the way we work, think and interact with communities. The Group behaves sustainably to reduce our carbon footprint.
As part of our sustainable behaviour we:
- Encourage all of our employees to adhere to sustainable working practices
- Use recycling facilities, a waste-conscious printing system, and hot-desking to encourage paperless offices

Our youth engagement programmes that give young people the chance to learn first-hand about the workplace and their training options.
At present we run two UK-based youth engagement programmes: Apprentice Connect and our work experience programme.
Apprentice Connect is a chance for young people to speak directly to apprentices to learn about their experiences of taking an apprenticeship.
Our work experience programme gives young people an insight into the world of work through placements in a real workplace and open days.

We first started awarding bursaries in 1999. Today, we award approximately 60-80 bursaries every year to people wishing to study for a City & Guilds or ILM qualification, but who are otherwise unable to afford it.
Bursaries open up opportunities by covering course fees, living costs, childcare, travel expenses and any extra hardship costs.
Each bursary is considered on a case-by-case basis where the applicant must:
- Demonstrate genuine financial need
- Reside in the United Kingdom

We work with a range of community engagement programmes and organisations, including Business in the Community and City Action. Giving our employees (including our international employees) the opportunity to volunteer, allows us to further help the communities we interact with and impact.
Maintaining our responsibility to these communities, through volunteer work, is an important part of putting our social purpose into action.
