Sustainability is a crucial factor that the Directors recognise as influential in the worldwide corporate domain, particularly in the motor industry. This is driven by six key themes; Climate Protection & Air Quality, Resource Conservation, Liveable Cities, Traffic Safety, Data Responsibility, and Human Rights. The Company recognises three enablers for these themes, which focus on key stakeholder groups. The firstly, Integrity, which is achieved by strengthening trust and relationships by remaining compliant with laws and regulations. Secondly People, the Company promotes diversity and equality as well as successfully allowing employees to address the challenges of a digital world. The final enabler is Partnerships, enabling a clear and reliable platform of communication, using what we call a 360⁰ process, which takes internal and external expectations into account.
On the local side, the electricity contract for the local head offices is sourced from 100% UK renewable energy, and in addition will be supplied by carbon neutral gas from August 2020.
