We recognise that our social, economic and environmental responsibilities to our stakeholders are integral to our business. We aim to demonstrate these responsibilities through our actions and within our corporate policies. Our Chief Executive Officer, Albert Ellis, is responsible for the implementation of this policy and will make the necessary resources available to realise our corporate responsibilities. The responsibility for our performance rests with all our employees.
Brightwork has been independently reviewed and certified by international assessment bodies that aim to improve environmental and social practices of companies by leveraging the influence of global supply chains. We were first certified by Sedex in 2014 followed soon afterwards by Ecovadis in 2016, in recognition of our ongoing efforts and commitment to sustainability and ethical business practices. We continue to work closely with these partner organisations to maintain a programme of monitoring and improvement of our practices.
We take our responsibility to promote a healthy working environment, ensuring everybody’s safety, minimising our environmental impact and striving for continual improvement in quality very seriously. To this end, Brightwork has focused on developing and effectively managing our business systems to a level where they are formally validated through a number of HSEQ supplier approval platforms. We currently have certified membership to Alcumus (Safe Contractor), Arava Hellios (RSQS) and Achilles (Services Community).
