An important part of our company philosophy is that each of our employees feels individually responsible for making a positive contribution towards the environment, to the communities in which we operate and to charitable causes.
arvato supports a wide range of charitable organisations across the UK. In 2014, arvato UK became a Patron of youth charity The Prince’s Trust (registered charity number 1079675), which helps disadvantaged young people to change their lives. In addition, our teams’ fundraising efforts support nominated local charities.
The Prince’s Trust gives practical and financial support to disadvantaged young people around the country, helping them to develop important employability skills, as well as confidence and motivation, enabling them to fulfil their potential.
How we’re supporting the Prince’s Trust:
Our employees have also generously supported many other local and national charities including Alzheimer’s Society, YKids, Thames Hospice, Slough Food Bank, South Sefton Food Bank, Cancer Research UK, British Heart Foundation, Ashgate Hospice, Ruby’s Fund, RNLI, Diabetes UK and Marie Curie Cancer Care.
Citizenship is one of our core values and it’s not just a word; we donate our time and resources to support local groups.
How we are good citizens:
Thinking globally, acting globally:
In 2008, arvato’s parent company, Bertelsmann, became a member of the United Nations Global Compact, which encourages businesses worldwide to adopt sustainable and socially responsible policies and report on their implementation.
By acting locally, we can play our part in improving the environment globally. We consider the environment in our decision making, not just because it’s the right thing to do but because it makes sense from an efficiency perspective too.
