Our approach to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) involves sharing ideas with colleagues and customers which result in activities that have a positive impact beyond our daily business activities.
We believe in delivering business results in a responsible way. We also believe in applying our technology and expertise to social and environmental issues. Continuously improving the energy efficiency of our data centres is one way in which we deliver on our commitment to being a responsible and sustainable company. Encouraging our colleagues to volunteer and support local communities means we take responsibility for the impact our business has on the wider community.
Our CSR activity is focussed on 4 key areas:
We aim to create a great working environment for our employees. We believe that a diverse, motivated and values- driven workforce achieves more for themselves and those around them.
Customers and suppliers
We help our customers reduce their impact on the environment by creating/demanding more environmentally friendly, low emission alternatives.
We work hard to ensure our activities are sustainable and help to make Colt a low carbon company. We have saved over 15,000 tonnes of carbon between 2010 and 2012 through a best-in-class energy efficiency programme.
From access to education to donations and volunteering, we merge people, skills and ideas to provide genuine help and support to those projects which fall under our theme of “Children and Education”. Every Colt employee is encouraged to take up their two paid volunteering days per year.
