Exel Contracts Ltd

Corporate & Social Responsibility

We want to be a responsible business that meets the highest standards of ethic and professionalism.

Exel Contracts social responsibility falls under two categories:  Compliance and Proactiveness.

Compliance refers to our company commitment to legality and willingness to observe community values.

Proactiveness is every initiative to promote human rights, help communities and protect our natural environment.

As a company we accept that corporate social responsibility (CSR) is important.  We are committed to ethical and sustainable business practices.  This means we take account of our social economic and environmental impact.  CSR is good for the planet, our employees, customers and communities.

There are 4 main stands to our CSR activities:

1. Environment (estates and environment)

We are committed to reducing our direct impact on the environment by actively managing our waste, emissions and consumption of natural resources.

2. People (human resources, health and wellbeing)

We aim to create a workplace that encourages diversity and equal opportunities for all. We actively encourage professional development by encouraging and supporting career development and  supporting employee health and wellbeing.

3. Procurement (finance and purchasing)

We seek out the most advantageous procurement route for the life of a project. This means 90% of our supply chain contracts are through government frameworks, where suppliers have been tendered, audited and checked against important criteria like financial stability and environmental compliance.

4. Community (volunteering, skills matching and fundraising)

To play a positive role in society, we’ve built a culture that promotes employee volunteering, skills matching and fundraising. We actively support local businesses and the communities in which we operate.
