Britannia Transworld’s sustainability policy is a business commitment and a strategy to achieve long term sustainability. Our sustainability vision is to supply quality products and services to customers.
Our sustainability strategy is to maintain high ethical standards in carrying out business activities. We value the importance of social responsibility in our business and the contribution it makes to our success.
It is our aim to encourage and promote the sustainable performance of suppliers and the sustainability credentials of the goods and services that we purchase. The sustainability strategies are summarised as:
- Sustainability integration into business activities.
- Identify customer specific and good practice sustainability initiatives.
- Supply quality products that are sustainable.
- Provide a working environment where colleagues can work safely.
We are committed to promoting good sustainability practice through the efficient use of resources by reducing pollution and the environmental impact of our operations and products.
A separate health and safety policy has also been implemented to ensure a safe working environment which satisfies health and safety standards set by law in the workplace as well as products and services used.
