Our Commitment to ESG
Shearwater Group (SWG) recognises its corporate and social responsibilities towards customers/clients, employees, shareholders, suppliers, regulators and other stakeholders. We appreciate we have an impact on the world we operate in and our Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance responsibilities are therefore central to our business. Our approach to ESG reflects Shearwater Group’s commitment to high standards of integrity and ethical conduct.
We are fully committed to the principle of responsible business and aim to ensure that no relevant policy decisions are made within the business, without first evaluating the potential ESG impact.
Shearwater provides equal opportunities both to job applicants and existing employees. We are committed to the equal treatment of all employees, with a particular focus on areas including equal pay, fair treatment and employee opportunities for a diverse workforce. The Group offers flexible working arrangements where practicable to help employees achieve a positive work/life balance.
Shearwater provides workplaces of a high standard for the benefit of our employees, customers and clients, with equally high standards of adherence to health and safety requirements.
The Shearwater team supports its local communities in several ways.
Regionally, specific company time is offered for our employees to contribute to worthwhile causes. In addition, employees regularly take part in raising money for worthy campaigns or projects of their own choosing. These are promoted through the company so that the good work undertaken can be recognised. Shearwater also commits to an annual donation of a product license to charity.
SWG seeks to minimise the environmental impact of its activities. We are committed to minimising pollution, minimising waste from our workplaces and adopting exemplary environmental management practices. We seek to improve the efficiency of our use of resources by conducting activities and operations in line with current environmental legislation and best environmental practices. SWG’s robust environmental management system is integrated into all business processes. SWG works with suppliers that share our own high environmental standards.
Carbon Initiative Program
As part of our environmental commitments, SWG launched a zero carbon program in March 2020. Since then, SWG has evolved these efforts further in partnership with DODO, a specialist carbon reduction consultancy.
Why are we doing this?
We are committed to a sustainable and low carbon future that improves the social, economical, and environmental wellbeing of our employees, clients, data, and the wider community. Find out more about the program and the incredible projects we are supporting via the buttons below.
