Jongor's CSR Strategy Summary:
Our corporate social responsibility program is an important part of our day-to-day operations and the key elements of the agenda are:
- To reduce our energy requirements and environmental impact
- To support local community organisations and charities in our areas of employment
- To ensure all employees are treated equally, with respect and without any form of bullying or harassment at any time
- To provide and maintain a clean, healthy and safe working environment for our colleagues
- To work with other businesses which adopt responsible business practices
We manage our environmental impact by having:
- Clearly signed recycling stations in use in key areas at all locations for paper, card, plastics, metal, glass, wood, printer cartridges and waste oil
- A vehicle route planning process to reduce unnecessary vehicle miles
- LED lighting in all warehouses and external areas
- 80% of non-warehouse lighting, such as office and rest areas, controlled by movement activated sensors
- A chemical management plan in place for the use of chemicals in the equipment cleaning process
- An HGV fleet that comply to Euro 6 emissions standard
- Cycle to work scheme for permanent staff, with bike storage facilities
