Acting responsibly is of course the right thing to do, but at Home Retail Group we believe it makes good business sense too.
Our five areas of focus
We measure our corporate responsibility performance and explain our strategic objectives and actions using five good business principles.
We've listened to our customers to find out how our responsible approach can help them save money, save resources and live more sustainably.
How we are shopping for tomorrow
We encourage colleagues to support their local communities through volunteering - and have developed our benefits package, incorporating new offers suggested by colleagues themselves.
How we're building a great place to work
We've beaten our fundraising targets for our national charity partner again and also provided support through volunteering and gifts in kind. We've also developed our community policy to improve its impact at a local level and engage our colleagues and customers.
How we're being a good neighbour
We've reduced our landfill waste, increased our recycling rates and introduced innovative reusable packaging. We have continued implementing energy efficiency measures across the Group.
How we're keeping clean and green
We know that customers want us to source timber and paper products responsibly - and we want to reassure them that ethical standards are met and no natural resources are wasted in making our products.
How we're sourcing with care
To support the Homebase Installations Certifications to ISO9001-2008 & ISO14001-2004 it is necessary to make the policies available to colleagues and interested parties.
