Our people and giving back
To care about our team and local community. Developing skills and diverse talent that will support our business and sector, now and in the future.
Our employees are core to everything we do, and we want them to be fully engaged with the Group and feel a strong sense of belonging and ownership. Supporting our team, through an environment that helps them flourish is part of our purpose, and it is critical to our long-term success as a business. This is delivered through continued involvement in our communities and to develop the skills of our people providing a broader talent pool to meet the needs of our business and sector, now and in the future.
We will continue to champion engagement across the Group, encouraging behaviours that align with our values. Our training and development will ensure people feel comfortable and secure in their roles, are treated respectfully and can operate with autonomy. We will value inclusivity and recognise performance through both our reward and career development programmes. We will also continue to encourage employee share ownership across the Group.
We will prioritise employee wellbeing, adapting to the changing social and economic backdrop. We will also continue to support the communities where we operate.
Our environmental performance
To manage and reduce emissions and energy consumption in our own business and influence key impacts in our supply chain.
Our primary goal is to manage and reduce our carbon emissions and energy consumption in our own business. We want to do the right thing for the long-term sustainability of the environment, and we will do this through a focus on improving our facilities and logistics activities.
To promote AV solutions that help people to communicate, collaborate and work more efficiently.
Our goal is to champion the use of AV technology and solutions to deliver positive benefits to both our customers and wider society.
In the year ahead we will continue to invest in our specialist teams and experience centres to be able to demonstrate the creative solutions that AV can deliver.
This is where we are seeing technological advancements begin to offer sustainability benefits through new ways of working. We will continue to work with our vendor brands and customers, proactively engaging in discussion on sustainability improvements as part of their new product development, such as ‘eco modes’.
In addition, we will champion AV channel education for sustainable best practice when proposing technology as part of a solution and by delivering key notes at leading industry events on topics aligned to sustainability, where installers and content creators gather ideas to adapt to building a more sustainable offering to their end user clients.
To support a sustainable value chain to ensure its long-term success and maximise collective benefit.
Our goal is to support a sustainable value chain to ensure the long-term success of our business and, by working with our vendors, customers and end users, influence and support their environmental goals. Many of our global vendors are large corporations who have their own ambitious plans to reduce their environmental impact.
Continuing to work with industry bodies and leading experts to play our part in the future formulation of channel sustainability. This coming year, the AVIXA Sustainability Task Force is about research and understanding, looking into the feasibility of what can be done and we commit to continuing to be a part of this.
Our long-standing relationships with partners throughout the AV channel provides us with the perfect opportunity to influence, therefore our commitment will be to continue to involve ourselves and add value on sustainability in the channel.
We will continue to support the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment recycling (“WEEE”) regulations and similar environmental programmes in other geographies.
