Corporate Social Responsibility
Please read the following for information on our CSR activity; or click here to go to the DCC website for information on our parent company’s CSR activity.
Certas are proud to have a number of accreditations in areas such as Environmental Management, Quality Management and Energy Management.
Business accreditations give assurance to a variety of stakeholders that the business is meeting high standard in various parts of its operations. These accreditations are not legal requirements but they are being increasingly demanded as an externally verified confirmation of confidence in the way that Certas operates.
Certas Energy has achieved the following and continue to monitor and improve based on recommendations:
• ISO 14001 (Environmental Management)
• ISO 9001 (Quality Management) Renewal
• ISO 50001 (Energy Management)
• BITC Corporate Responsibility Index
We recognise the importance of all our colleagues, and that their health and well-being is vital to the success of the business – this has culminated in our Safety F1rst initiative. We will make sure that all our workplaces meet the Health and Safety Executive’s standards.
We promote equal opportunities for all staff, regardless of age, disability, gender reassignment, race, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity.
We actively support the professional and personal development of all our colleagues. They receive clear information on career progression information and have clear personal development plans, supported by a range of learning and development opportunities.
We aim to have a positive effect on the local communities we work in.
We support a variety of local and national charities. We also actively encourage colleagues to do volunteer work, which brings a number of benefits to local communities and also the personal development of our people.
