Sustainability

Sustainability at the core of our business

For Excursions Ltd, sustainability and social issues are central to our business strategy and activity. They shape and influence our activities as we strive to become an organisation that people wish to interact with, whether they are clients, employees or suppliers.

Responsibility therefore sits at the heart of everything we do. We aim to achieve best practice in employee relations, workplace standards, training and development, diversity and disability as well as environmental policies for our staff. Our Responsibility is about ensuring that we take into account the social, community and environmental consequences of all of our activities.

The Company seeks to protect and enhance in particular, the environment and the wellbeing of its staff, clients and members of the public with which it engages during the conduct of its business. It requires all its offices and staff to comply with our Sustainability and Environmental policy.

We aim to follow and to promote good sustainability practice, to reduce the environmental impacts of all our activities and to help our clients and partners to do the same.

Our commitment, therefore, is a proactive and anticipatory approach, which embraces:

  • Sustainable development in all our activities
  • Conservation of energy, both in the office and whilst site based
  • Use of renewable resources and the sustainable management of resources
  • Recycling of resources wherever possible to a higher standard than that required by UK law
  • We are aiming for the reduction of waste production and encourage all staff to consider and comply with 'the four Rs' when disposing of waste – Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Responsible Disposal in order to reduce the amount of waste produced and sent to landfill
  • Compliance with UK and EU legislation as a minimum, relating to the protection and preservation of the environment, transfer of waste, prevention of pollution to the environment, preservation of trees, plants and wildlife
  • Prevention and removal of nuisances which affect the quality of life of the end users and the public in general
  • Assessment of the environmental impact of our proposed actions upon the end users and society as a whole
  • Value our workforce and, by recruitment, fair pay, selection and development of employees, contractors and suppliers, ensure they are appropriately skilled and competent to carry out their roles
  • Not discriminating on account of gender, race, age, disability, ethnicity, religion/ beliefs of sexual orientation and actively encouraging employment opportunities for people with special needs
  • Refuse child labour and all forms of forced and compulsory labour
  • Reject business related to activities such as illegal trafficking, illicit substance use, sexual harassment, sexual exploitation of children
