One of our core objectives is to contribute positively to our local community.
Here at Actons, we aim to fulfill our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme by creating and developing a good working environment for the personal growth of staff, minimising the impact our business has on the environment and supporting initiatives in Nottingham, the wider East Midlands and nationwide.
Our involvement covers a wide range of sponsorship support and fund raising.
We are a long term supporter of Macmillan and carries out a number of fundraising initiatives for the charity, including taking part in the annual nationwide Macmillan Coffee Morning. Over the many years we have supported Macmillan, we have raised in excess of £20,000 for the charity and continue to support its excellent work.
We work closely with Age UK Notts and supports their brilliant efforts with service users across the county. Fundraising events for the charity include making festive food hampers for the elderly to receive during the Christmas period.
We have worked with and supported Framework Housing Association for many years. In the past events have included enabling service users to hold a week long art exhibition of their work at the View From The Top Gallery, sponsorship of the Framework AGM, support sponsorship of the very popular Human Table Football Fundraising event, supporting and participating in day long Golf events, holding raffles and participating in the Big Sleep Out.
We work hard to ensure that our business has minimal impact on the environment. We recycle our waste including paper, cardboard, glass, plastic, cans, toner and printer cartridges and use recycled products where we can. Our Corporate Social Responsibility committee meet regularly to monitor performance and each team has a ‘Recycling Champion’ to aid in implementing our recycling policy. Our confidential waste shredding company recycles all of the paper it collects. The taxi company we use, Cloud Cars Ltd (www.cloudcarsltd.com) is an environmentally friendly taxi company using only electric cars which minimises our carbon footprint.
Many of our solicitors and other members of staff individually take part in many charitable projects and each regularly raise money and spend a lot of their spare time volunteering for various charities.
