Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) refers to business practices which benefit society. They usually relate to two distinct areas with some overlap. Ecological or external CSR includes environmental policies, sustainability, and ethical sourcing. Social or internal CSR relates to staff development, ethical hiring, and safe working practices. Most large companies have a CSR policy to influence their company values.
As a large-scale aluminium manufacturer and supplier, we adhere to a detailed CSR policy: The Automatic Door Company CSR Policy Our main external aim is to provide a professional service with value for money to all our customers. Where possible we use environmentally friendly practices to reduce our carbon footprint and use environmentally sustainable materials.
At The Automatic Door Company, we use high performing sustainable aluminium. At our high-tech factory, we fabricate our aluminium windows, doors, and curtain walling using the latest CNC machinery. This provides accuracy, enabling us to minimise waste and maximise efficiency. We employ strict processes across the business to ensure that fabrication is as streamlined as possible.
At The Automatic Door Company, we value our workforce. We want to ensure that every member of our team achieves their full potential. Our workforce regularly undergo training to ensure that they stay up to date with the latest industry developments. We adhere to rigorous health and safety regulations to ensure a safe working environment for all employees.
When employing new team members, we promote equality on all levels. We have a zero-tolerance policy on discrimination and always hire the best person for the job regardless of age, background, gender, and ethnicity.
A big part of CSR is community and charitable work which benefits society as a whole. Community projects combine aspects of both ecological and social CSR. The Automatic Door Company have excellent working relationships with several local councils and regularly work on schools, colleges, and community buildings. By providing our industry expertise to these projects, we are helping to build a more positive environment for everyone involved.
