It’s Environment, Social and Governance Week at the Joseph Ash Group

Following World Environment Day at the weekend, the Joseph Ash Group has designated the first week of June to be ‘ESG Week’. During this week, we’re raising awareness of the environment and social and governance issues affecting our colleagues, clients, and suppliers.

This is the first year for our new annual event, and so far this week, we’ve delivered presentations on ‘What is ESG?’. We’ve also provided resources (posters and links to activities) to team members to help them understand some of the terminology used (e.g. ‘Carbon Neutral’, ‘Net Zero’, ‘Carbon Offsetting’). Plus, we’ve shared advice on being more energy, waste and water conscious both at work and at home.

Later this week, we’ll be conducting safety tours to reinforce the importance of health and safety in the workplace.

Here are some of the important topics we’re covering:

Environment

  • Compliance with all environmental legislation
  • Minimise all negative environmental impacts from our operations – emissions to air, water and land
  • Minimise our resource usage and support a circular economy
  • Reduce our carbon emissions and work towards achieving Net Zero carbon emissions.

Social

  • Managing the risks to the health, safety & wellbeing of our colleagues and other stakeholders
  • Improve the talent and diversity of our colleagues and create a value-based culture within the business
  • Positively engage with our local community by providing support to local initiatives and charities
  • Supporting apprenticeships.

Governance

  • Effectively identifying, mitigating, and controlling business risk
  • Operating in compliance with all applicable legislation
  • Ethically conducting business and working with integrity
  • Using reputable suppliers and working with customers that support our values
  • Ensuring all decision-making is carried out with our values, strategy and impacts considered.
