Corporate Social Responsibility
Our commitment to operating
as an ethical, socially responsible
company in everything we do
At Exponential-e, we are passionate about
protecting our planet and conserving its natural resources
for future generations.
We recognise the impact our business can have on the environment and have been working
continuously since 2014 to reduce our carbon footprint in every way we can. We believe it’s our obligation to leave the world a better place than we found it and, to this end, have set specific objectives to ensure we achieve our CSR goals. Our Mission Statement - declared in 2002 - was to be publicly recognised as a ‘world-class company’, and we constantly strive towards that goal. However, we also recognise that our goal cannot be achieved unless we operate globally as good corporate citizens.
Exponential-e has a long-standing responsible approach towards balancing social, environmental and commercial factors to maintain a sustainable planet and a thriving business. Our social responsibilities embrace many areas such as the fair and equal treatment and support for our staff, inclusivity, diversity, and how we work with the local communities and what we give back to them. Additionally, our wider contribution to society through partnerships with selected charities, local authorities and good causes has been part of our culture, ethos, and values since our inception in 2002.
Responsibility to Our Staff
We are committed to helping our staff fulfil their potential in and out of work and offer a range of online and in-person training programmes to this end, with employees’ successes celebrated at our quarterly Pride Awards.
Our People Engagement Networks and Women’s Network offer staff friendly, open forums to discuss day-to-day life at Exponential-e, where they can freely share their concerns, challenges, and ideas, driving new initiatives to help make us a supportive, exciting place to work.
We also offer a range of benefits to boost staff’s overall health and wellbeing, including life assurance, Medicash cover, and private medical health cover.
Our Five CSR Pillars
Our five CSR Pillars represent the different ethical obligations that are deeply embedded in our everyday business.
We believe that even the smallest action can make a difference to the planet, and so reducing impact on the environment is something we care deeply about.
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle are principles that are baked into our company’s DNA.
Diversity and inclusion
We are committed to recognising talent regardless of background and eliminating discrimination at work.
Fairness, diversity, and inclusion have been embedded in our business from the very beginning.
Health and wellbeing
With high levels of stress and uncertainty, it’s more important than ever to ensure our employees get the best support for their emotional and physical health, and so we offer a number of programmes and initiatives in this area.
Local community support
We strive to make a difference in our communities, with our People Engagement Networks organising numerous charity events throughout the year, and our employees enjoying time off to focus on their own voluntary work.
Exponential-e is dedicated to sustainable, ethical and responsible business practices. We look for the same high standards when choosing suppliers and partners, who must demonstrate a clear commitment to data protection and supporting human rights.
