Corporate Social Responsibility

Together PEL wants to make a difference.

Together with business owners, County Councils and Local Authority project partners, PEL will develop an agenda for sustainable development that will leverage a combined position in the war against waste.

PEL’s Corporate Social Responsibility commitments are built upon three pillars:

  • Social Community.
  • Economic Contribution.
  • Environment.

 

Social Community

The Social Community pillar demonstrates how PEL interacts with local communities. Building trust and developing strategic partnerships within communities is essential to the growth of PEL’s global agenda for securing long-term sustainability. Through this pillar, PEL has conducted talks in schools, given continuous support across communities, and provided support and protection for victims through the implementation of the ‘Modern Slavery Act, 2015’.

Economic Contribution

Our pillar of Economic Contribution refers to the creation of job opportunities within local communities. PEL strives to provide business support and employee engagement that stimulates both professional and personal development, within an inclusive and diverse workplace. PEL also engages with local schools by providing work experience. Our management and team work hard to provide educational work placements so students can gain an insight into the manufacturing industry. Learning outcomes of students include a dynamic insight into business relations and a breakdown of department roles, workshops across R&D, as well as hands-on experience shadowing personnel on the manufacturing lines.

Environment

The final and most important pillar, is our care for the Environment. At PEL, we recognise that our activities have an impact on the environment. It’s our responsibility to minimise that impact by contributing to the sustainable development of the economy and protecting the natural environment. By acknowledging this pillar, PEL is optimising its current practices, creating greater energy efficiency across councils and businesses. For example, by making recycling and route planning more effective, we are reducing carbon emissions.
