The Glendale Group is committed at all times to conducting our business in a responsible and sustainable way. We are committed to behaving in a way that is beneficial to our environment, the wider community and all stakeholders.
We recognise 5 key areas that contribute to corporate social responsibility: our customers, our people, our local communities, our suppliers and our environment.
We supply customers who operate in several market sectors and aim to provide them with cost-effective plastic injection mouldings. We continually strive to provide the best service for our customers through all stages from development through to logistics.
We respect and value the things that make our staff individuals and we’re committed to creating a culture of inclusion and diversity.
We provide access to training for all staff to put them in the best position to do their job well, and fulfil their potential.
Our local communities
We believe in and support our local communities.
We’re keen to support colleagues who volunteer or fundraise for charity and can provide time off and company support to facilitate time in the community.
Our reputation is very important to us and to help protect this, we won’t knowingly do business with any organisation that doesn’t share our commitment to dealing with stakeholders fairly and ethically. Our approach to procurement is based on the principles of competitive tendering and dealing with suppliers in a fair and open manner.
We believe in the principle of caring for the environment and continually strive to incorporate environmental good practice into our workplace, taking a sustainable approach to waste management and minimising our use of resources across the business.
We are focussed on improving our energy efficiency, manging our wastage responsibly and reducing our carbon emissions. Having taken large steps in our commitment to delivering a paperless office, minimising business travel is also an important part of our work and we provide teleconferencing facilities to help colleagues reduce the need to travel for meetings.
We recognise our responsibility to do business in a manner that protects and improves the environment for our future generations.
Operation Clean Sweep
As we are participants in the Operation Clean Sweep scheme, we are very conscious of plastic granules entering the drainage systems and have preventive measure in place to avoid this.
The vast majority of the plastics we process are recyclable and we also suggest where relevant to use recycled plastics.
Where possible we recycle plastic waste in house to reduce our waste.
Biopolymers and compostable can be processed on our injection moulding machines.
