Social Value

We are committed to ensuring that good practices are part of our everyday business behaviours

Salisbury Group is committed to good corporate social responsibility and sustainability. We intend to continuously improve the positive impacts of our business activities on the communities in which we work, the environment, the wider marketplace and the workplace.

We are passionate about delivering excellent service outcomes to our clients and customers and always acting in line with our company values of Professionalism, Integrity, Passion, Safety.

We are strongly committed to social value and making a difference in the diverse communities in which we work. Our Social Value Committee comprises representatives from across our business and reports directly to the Group Managing Director. It is responsible for putting corporate social responsibility at the heart of our operational practices.

As a company that puts partnership into practice, we work with our clients and supply chain partners to collaborate and enhance our joint impact.

Social value pillars

Community

We actively play a role in community engagement through the involvement, skills, knowledge and expertise of people within our business. We believe that giving opportunities to learn or be supported by Salisbury in development provides the community with long-term sustainable support.

Environment

Our organisation works to maximise sustainability and minimise the impact of our operations and that of our service partners and suppliers on the environment.

Marketplace

We treat our service partners and suppliers respectfully and with honesty and we collaborate with them to enhance social value. We make purchasing decisions that take into account social and environmental issues.

Workplace

We care about our people and we are proud to be a diverse organisation. We actively support our employees and are committed to treating everyone equally, fairly, respectfully and honestly.
