Corporate Social Responsibility Statement

Our Commitment

Teepee recognises that integrating social, environmental and ethical responsibilities into the governance of businesses ensures long-term success, competitiveness and sustainability. Further, CSR makes business sense as companies with effective CSR have the image of socially responsible companies, achieve sustainable growth in their operations in the long run, and their products and services are likely to be preferred by customers.

Teepee aspires to be a forward thinking and responsible business with its employees, the local community and the environment at the forefront of its day-to-day activities.

To achieve our CSR ambitions we have formulated a strategy which includes the following:

• Providing support for the wellbeing and development of our employees.
• Minimising our impact on the environment.
• Improving the positive impact on the communities we live and work in.
• Developing our partnerships with suppliers.

Employee Relations

Teepee will ensure that employees are treated fairly and with dignity and consideration for their goals and aspirations, and that diversity in the workplace is embraced.

Teepee will strictly adhere to the Government’s policy on equal pay and the minimum living wage.

Teepee is committed to providing equal opportunity in all aspects of employment and will not engage in or tolerate unlawful workplace conduct, including discrimination, intimidation, or harassment. Teepee will not tolerate human rights abuses and will
not engage or be complicit in any activity that solicits or encourages human rights abuse.

Environment Health & Safety

Teepee is committed to protecting the health and safety of all individuals affected by our activities, including our employees, contractors and the public. Teepee will provide a safe and healthy working environment and will not compromise the health and safety of any individual. Our goal is to have no accidents and mitigate impacts on the environment by working with our stakeholders, peers and others to promote responsible environmental practices and continuous improvement.

Teepee is committed to environmental protection and stewardship.

Teepee recognizes that pollution prevention, biodiversity and resource conservation are key to a sustainable environment and will effectively integrate these concepts into our business decision-making.

All employees are responsible and accountable for contributing to a safe working environment, for fostering safe working attitudes, and for operating in an environmentally responsible manner.

Community Investment

Teepee is committed to recruit its employees from the local community, which provides opportunities for local people to enjoy working within close proximity to their homes, cutting travel times and additional costs.

Teepee is also committed to supporting the local community outside its business activities. It sponsors the playing kit of a local amateur football team and supports a local children’s hospice through charitable events.

Supply Chain

Teepee will advise its partners, contractors, and suppliers of its Corporate Social Responsibility Policy, and will work with them to achieve consistency with this policy.

Teepee will ensure its suppliers complete a questionnaire to assess supply chain CSR risk.

Teepee is aware of the Modern Slavery Act and will ensure to the best of its ability that modern day slavery is not taking place in the business or its supply chains.
