Environmental and Corporate Social Responsibility Statement

Introduction

 

We are Falconer Print and Packaging Ltd, manufacturers of printed folding cartons. The prosperity of our business and of the communities within which we operate requires a commitment to the sustainable management of our activities. We have developed a policy that affects and enhances all areas of our business. We wish, therefore, to adopt and commit to the principles and practices set out below.

 

Staff/People

 

We are committed to the well-being and continual development of our people and to training our workforce, where employees are appreciated, valued and given regular feedback so that each employee has a clear understanding of their role and how they contribute to the business.

We operate a meritocracy, where all employees are recognised and rewarded on the basis of their performance, effort, contribution and achievements.

 

We expect our employees to act with integrity towards one another and exercise a high standard of business practice and workmanship.

 

We support diversity, fairness and equal opportunities and aim to involve and consult regularly with employees as to the direction of the business.


Customers

 

We aim to build long term relationships with all our customers and other stakeholders by understanding their objectives as they evolve over time and meeting their needs.

We aim to give fair value, consistent quality and reliability.


We aim to have the highest professional and ethical standards and will be honest, open and transparent in all our dealings with customers.


Suppliers

 

We aim to create and maintain strong relationships with key suppliers and contractors.

We aim to choose suppliers that share our ethos in relation to employment practices, quality and environmental controls. This will be communicated to all suppliers and potential suppliers.

Health & Safety

 

We aim to achieve and maintain the highest standards of health and safety and provide a safe and healthy working environment for all our activities.

We have a current and effective written health and safety policy that is regularly reviewed and updated.

 

Environment

 

We have implemented an environmental policy appropriate to our business. Which is set out and contained within our quality manual.
