Corporate and Social Responsibility

Our commitment

CSR : Shard is committed to making a positive impact on ethical behaviour and sustainable economic development. Our aim is to improve the quality of life for our workforce and their families, the local community and society at large.


We are proud to be operating in an industry that has the power to create wonderful opportunities for our people, clients and communities. To ensure these opportunities remain we understand that it is important we promote sustainability in all our endeavours, considering both environmental and community issues in a responsible way.

We will continually work to reduce and mitigate out environmental impact; we aim to do this by:

  • Reducing our consumption of resources
  • Managing energy consumption and performance
  • Encouraging a higher level of reuse and recycling
  • Working with our supply chain to reduce waste to landfill
  • Reducing carbon emissions
  • Reducing water consumption
  • Selecting materials and equipment which have minimal environmental impact
  • Engaging with suppliers who share our values and can contribute to achieving our goals
People and Diversity

We believe the best way to ensure we are successful and attract the best people is to promote diversity in the workplace. To this end we seek to ensure that our workforce reflects the diverse communities we serve and that every employee, supplier and client is treated fairly during the whole of their working life. We aim to take action to eradicate discrimination and inequality when delivering services and when employing or partnering with others to deliver services on our behalf to our clients and the wider community.

We want to be a company that creates opportunity, nurtures talented people and provides a safe and comfortable environment to work in


Shard actively encourages and promotes participation in community projects, both at home and in the communities we work. We aim to expand our involvement in community schemes, sponsorships, fund-raising and other initiatives as we grow.
