Integrity is at the heart of our business and we treat customers, staff, suppliers, partners and the environment with dignity, honesty, and respect at all times.
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is at the very core of our business in terms of employee recruitment, retention, reputation and brand. Importantly, our CSR activities have significantly contributed to making MAXX a happy place to work! In late 2021, MAXX was awarded the GOLD standard CSR Accreditatation, underlining our commitment to the importance of CSR.
We are working with the innovative environmental organisation, Ecologi.com, who are currently planting 214 trees a month on our behalf. By the end of 2022 this will result in our own forest of 2,568 trees!
Each month MAXX’s tree planting programme saves 15 tonnes of carbon which is equivalent to:
MAXX is also committed to the target of zero waste to landfill as well as being carbon neutral.
1. Environmental CSR
Having recently moved into new offices (and with the help of Covid-19) we have reduced our energy use and car journeys by 78%. We will continue to minimise any negative impact on the environment through energy saving, recycling and encouraging positive supply-chain operations.
2. Community-based CSR
We partner with community initiatives, education and the Arts to enrich, support and learn from our local community. Many of our team members are involved in community initiatives which we often support.
3. Workplace CSR
We support diversity and inclusion as well as encouraging our team to develop personally. We have a very loyal team, several have worked with us for over 10 years.
4. Philanthropic CSR
We offer reduced rates and/or help-in-kind for charities and not-for-profit organisations, as well as donating to charities and good causes. Our Head of Business Development, Will is an Ambassador for Time to Talk (West Berkshire Mental Health Charity) and is a founding member of The Chee Foundation (providing vital grants to small charities).
