From cycle loans to Investors in People to social welfare projects, being responsible is a core value at William Reed Business Media – towards one another, our customers, the community and the environment.
We’ve consciously highlighted the issues that are important to us and set out the steps that can bring those goals to life.
Our active support and close relationships with our community and local charities set us apart from other businesses. Charity support is important to our company and our employees. Through the William Reed Charitable Fund, we provide financial support to social welfare projects in conjunction with charities and community groups based in Sussex and the surrounding areas. We work in partnership with the Sussex Community Foundation who help us to choose suitable projects and distribute the money for maximum benefit.
Our staff are also encouraged to raise money for their chosen local and national charities, through the William Reed Charitable Fund. In acknowledgment of employee fundraising efforts, our match-funding scheme supports their activities by means of a corresponding company donation.
We strive towards environmental sustainability and resource efficiency. We have active programmes to reduce our carbon footprint through recycling and by lowering our consumption of energy, paper, glass and plastic. Certification under the Chain of Stewardship programmes operated by the Forest Stewardship Council and the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification recognises our commitment to the use of responsibly sourced paper. We believe that every one of us can make a difference and help reduce environmental impact in the workplace.
