Launch of CSER report announced

08 February 2017

Details of Bartlett Mitchell's first formalised Corporate, Social and Environmental Responsibility (CSER) report have been released.

In addition to outlining its targets for 2017, the Fruitful World also looks at the company's achievements over the previous year.

This follows a growing trend for increased focus on this topic in various areas of the FM sector, which has led to Partners in Corporate Social Responsibility category being included in this year's PFM Awards.

Details of the Bartlett Mitchell CSER report included its achievement in reducing food waste by 17.5% through tailored workshops for chefs, a 20% reduction in site deliveries by allowing contract managers to handle these directly and the provision of over 12,000 training events for team members, assisting in achieving the company's Investors in People Gold Award.

Further to the above, sponsorship of water pumps in Malawi, in association with Thirsty Planet, saw 43 pumps built that provided water access to 5,000 people, funded by the sale of bottled water at the company's sites.

The report is intended for use as a benchmark to drive further CSER initiatives, including increased use of fairtrade coffee, adopting more beehives from the British Beekeepers Association and increased use of sustainable packaging.
