Delivering Sustainable Solutions
As a company, we are committed to doing the right thing, the right way, and to ensuring that the highest standards are maintained across our business in areas such as health & safety, sustainability and social responsibility. We value our reputation as a forward-thinking and innovative operator within the marketplace and recognise that CSER underpins our overall values as a business, particularly as the scale of our operations continues to grow.
We are fully aware of our environmental responsibilities. In a spirit of openness towards our staff, customers, local authorities and administrative bodies, we have embarked upon a policy of continuous improvement that aims to minimise our impact on the environment and create a sustainable business model for the future. Monitoring and measurement of live operations is continually undertaken in order to assess our on-going influence on the environment, and to seek areas where any effect can be reduced.
Health & Safety
People are the most important asset of any business, and the health, safety and welfare of our colleagues, visitors and customers, is of prime importance. As part of Culina Group, we are fully committed to provide and maintain a healthy and safe working environment across all operations and activities. Safety is an essential element of a successful and sustainable business. Great Bear takes its responsibility to protect employees, visitors and contractors very seriously.
We operate large scale logistics activities based at a number of our customers’ warehouse and
manufacturing facilities and we can demonstrate our commitment to working with them to help
continuously improve performance:
Developing safe operating processes
Sharing best practice
Providing modern equipment
Involvement in forums
Great Bear recognises that in order to achieve the highest levels of safety performance it is vital
to engage its employees at all levels across the organisation. We do all we can to keep our
workplaces safe and healthy. It is an area in which we aim to improve continuously and
measurably, year on year – we make this happen by putting employees’ well-being at the heart
of our culture.
Corporate & Social
We are committed to conducting business in an ethical manner and continually review our processes to ensure we act responsibly. Great Bear regularly engages with its suppliers to seek mutual benefits in areas such as sustainability and the environment. Our business approach is based on developing long-standing relationships with our suppliers; therefore, our anti-bribery policy ensures those responsible throughout the company remain committed to conducting business with the utmost integrity and honesty in line with our Company values.
