Corporate & social responsibility.

Claremont is committed to developing its business practices in a socially responsible manner.

We recognise that our activities have a direct impact upon the wellbeing of our employees, customers, suppliers, and the wider community. We also understand that our purchasing practices will impact on communities regionally, nationally and globally.

Our commitments:
  • Promoting an environmental policy which aims to minimize the impact of our business on the environment. By attaining the ISO 14001 accreditation, Claremont is taking active steps to measure and reduce its carbon footprint and has committed to offset the remaining footprint by 110%
  • Promoting an ethical purchasing policy and giving preference, as far as practicable, to suppliers who share our commitment to social responsibility, good labour and environmental standards, and fair trade
  • Treating employees and customers openly and fairly, and with respect and professionalism
  • Working with the local community and charities to protect our environment and support good causes
  • Communicating policies clearly to customers and suppliers

We strive for continuous improvement in our performance by providing training and raising awareness among employees, listening and responding to stakeholders, and actively supporting and taking part in social responsibility projects and initiatives. We encourage our team to get involved in our local community, through fundraising events and awareness campaigns. We continually monitor and report on our social responsibility performance to ensure we consistently exceed our statutory obligations on employment, health and safety and the environment.

Anti-slavery and human trafficking policy

Slavery and human trafficking remains a hidden blight on our global society. We fully support international efforts to promote ethical principles and practices related to the prevention of the exploitation and abuse associated with modern slavery and human trafficking. Pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015, our full anti-slavery and human trafficking policy can be downloaded here.

Fundraising and the local community

Over the years, we have supported a number of charities through a variety of fundraising activities and events. In 2017, we supported two charities; Coffee4Craig, a charity that provides support and outreach services to homeless people in Manchester, Salford and Cardiff. Our London and South West team nominated the Julian Trust, a charity which provides night shelter for homeless people every night in Bristol.

In 2018, Claremont has again chosen to support two charities. Our team in the North West has nominated the Walton Lea Partnership, a charity that provides supported employment for adults with learning disabilities, mental health problems and mobility issues. They offer all kinds of work such as woodwork, floristry and conservation work. For more information, see their website.

Our team in London and the South West has nominated Children’s Hospice South West. They provide care and support to families living in the South West, who have children with life-limiting conditions. They offer specialist palliative care, respite for the whole family, a sibling service, emergency support, end-of-life care and a bereavement service for as long as is needed. They have operated for over 25 years, enriching the lives of children and their families. For more information, see their website.

We have a number of exciting fundraising activities planned over the course of the coming year, including some sport-inspired initiatives, which our charity team will be tackling throughout 2018.
