Building Futures

CSR

CCG recognise that the promotion of our corporate social responsibility across the company, our people and via our involvement in the communities in which we are present, is key to our future strategy.

We are committed to the elevation of Corporate Social Responsibility values amongst our staff, customers and stakeholders as well as the wider communities in which we operate and we will approach it with the same commitment and dedication which we apply across all our business.

CCG’s aim is simple – to embed Corporate Social Responsibility into everything we do and to be a responsible business.

Our core objectives are set out below:

  • Conserving the environment
  • Sustained management and support of our people
  • Employing good practice toward local communities in the form of community benefit contributions

The CCG CSR Policy is approved by the CCG Board of Directors and is reviewed annually to ensure that we respond to clients, business strategy, legislation and any standards or codes of practice determined by the market.

In order to ensure that CCG employees and our supply chain adhere to this policy we will:

  • Ensure all employees involved in procurement decisions have access to training and guidance in responsible procurement principles and practices in order to be able to manage sustainability risks and opportunities in the procurement process.
  • Be responsive to any concerns about our supply chain raised by stakeholders or by our business partners through our procurement and supplier management process.

CCG commit our business to implement this policy across our supply chains and are thankful to all of our partners at sustaining this approach.

 

CCG Fundraising

During the month of September 2017, CCG and our supply chain partners raised £30,000 for the St Andrew’s Hospice Capital Appeal after hosting an ‘It’s a Knockout’ fun day at Strathclyde Country Park, contributing to a £100k + in charitable donations for the year.

The fun day involved teams of 10 made up of companies from within the CCG Group and those who work with CCG across the supply chain battling against each other across large, inflatable assault courses whilst trying to avoid falling into large pools of cold, murky water.

St Andrew’s Hospice is a specialist palliative care facility located in Airdrie, North Lanarkshire. The charity is raising £9 million through the Capital Appeal to raise funds for the extensive refurbishment works that were recently completed by CCG.

After the success of the event last year, CCG hosted our second ‘It’s a Knockout Day’ but this time, rather than one charity, our competing teams were invited to raise a minimum of £500 for their own chosen charity whilst CCG staff participants were invited to raise a minimum of £50 for a charity of their choice as well.

The It’s a Knockout Day is took place on the 19th of August in partnership with M&D’s at Strathclyde Country Park and a total in excess of £15,000 was raised and split between 25 charities.
