For EnviroVent corporate social responsibility is about how we conduct business and build relationships with the world in which we operate. It is about our commitment and responsibility in terms of what is most important to us - our shareholders, employees, customers, suppliers, environment, community and ethics at the heart of our business. It is our quest to minimise any negative impacts on our activities in continuing to strive for positive outcomes, which enables sustainable development for both EnviroVent and the wider world around us.
Our corporate social responsibility is set out in the underlying policies which relate to:
The EnviroVent Way is a set of guiding principles that reflect who we are, how we do things round here and where we want to be.
We make a difference and are passionate about providing solutions that improve people’s health and homes.
We value our people; encourage their development and equip them with skills, experience and confidence to be the best they can be. 1/3 of people currently employed have been promoted within EnviroVent.
We operate as a team with trust and integrity, sharing our skills, knowledge and experience irrespective of position to deliver the best results and celebrate our success together.
We are enthusiastic, positive, proactive and driven. We show initiative and a can do approach to work. We are accountable for making it happen.
We listen. We are open, honest and straight forward and treat customers how they would like to be treated.
Our business and livelihood depend upon our customers. EnviroVent’s purpose for being in business is to listen and understand their needs and then exceed their expectations before, during, and after the delivery of our product and service, and to do it better than any other company in our industry.
We are constantly improving our reputation as a specialist, caring company by providing “added value” for our clients at every opportunity. We aim to further develop state-of-the-art technology to serve the quality and delivery needs of our customers.
EnviroVent has over 200 employees operating in a wide number of fields both internally and externally, from engineers and installers to production personnel, office-based staff and field sales teams. EnviroVent recognise that our employees are the drivers in enabling us to grow and be successful. We are greatly committed to enhancing skills, development and motivation with the aim of building the best team that achieves our goal of becoming the market leader.
Everyone has a part to play in welcoming diversity and opportunity. We do not discriminate against employees on the basis of gender, age, sexual orientation, ethnicity, marital status or religious belief. By valuing our diverse workforce, we enhance our creativity, ability to adapt to change and increase our performance.
We strive to create a working environment where employees are informed and involved in company activities.
EnviroVent recognises that offering the right rewards help us to attract, motivate and retain the best people.
EnviroVent strives to promote shareholder value by working actively to achieve our long-term goals and market leadership. This will enable us to deliver sustained returns for all our Shareholders. We seek to anticipate future scenarios, new regulations and market trends to ensure the development of our future business.
EnviroVent’s ethos revolves around delivering sustainable products that are built to last the life cycle of a building. Not only do our products minimise environmental impact but our business processes do too.
At the heart of every product in the Lifetime Range® lies the EnviroVent Ultra Low Watt DC/EC Motor. This eco technology allows fans to operate using the lowest possible energy, generating efficient power and thereby reducing carbon emissions.
In order to reduce the impact of plastics going to landfill, EnviroVent has taken the responsibility to recycle old, existing traditional extract fans when they are replaced by our products. This involves the products being ground down and remoulded into plastic parts for other ventilation products within the Lifetime Range®, such as heat recovery units and whole house ventilation systems. By carrying out this process, EnviroVent is ensuring that these plastics should never end up on landfill sites.
All Lifetime Range product packaging is already 80% recycled, stamped with clear instructions to return it to the factory to be recycled/reused or to recycle it themselves. We are committed to reducing our carbon footprint by encouraging staff to recycle using the recycling bins provided in every department.
Our suppliers play a vital role in EnviroVent’s production and services. As a UK manufacturer we recognise that local sourcing has a great impact on supporting the local economy and community. With this in mind we endeavour to choose local suppliers, which in turn help to reduce our carbon footprint. We are committed to working with suppliers who ensure the welfare of workers and exceed recognised standards.
At EnviroVent we believe that our business partnerships are long-term commitments and are a fundamental part of the way we do business. Through building ‘value-chains,’ we work to support suppliers and subcontractors so that we can improve the way we do business.
Safety and security is a highest priority at all times for employees and customers. We strive to provide a safe, healthy and secure working environment and are committed to continuous improvement in Health and Safety policies and training.
EnviroVent works with over 500 Housing Association Bodies and communities on a daily basis – all of which are recognising the clear benefits brought by installing EnviroVent products. In addition, we support the local communities in which we operate through employing local installers and engineers. We also educate Tenant Management Organisations in solving condensation problems and promoting health. We are committed to supporting various charities including St Michael’s Hospice and MacMillan Cancer Research.
