Corporate Social Responsibility

At Bell Ingram Ltd we believe that we have a duty to enhance the positive and minimise the negative environmental, social and economic impacts of our activities.  We are committed to embedding our corporate responsibility into our values, professional practice and procedures for the benefit of our clients, colleagues and many other stakeholders.  We have produced this policy to help all staff conduct their day to day activities in a manner consistent with the Company's values and aims as a business.  The policy sets out how we expect our staff, members, suppliers, business partners, contractors and customers to be treated and to behave towards each other, our community and the environment. 

The policy covers all areas of our operations and is explained under four broad categories of impact:

  • Workplace
  • Marketplace
  • Community
  • Environment

We have developed the policy with reference to the relevant Codes of Corporate Government and best practice, including specific policies, such as our Environmental Policy, which the Company covers in more detail in separate documents, available for all staff and customers.

 

Environmental Policy

Bell Ingram takes very seriously the commitment to reducing, as much as possible, our impact on the environment.  We were one of the first land agency company’s to adopt a rigorous approach to environmental issues and have been offering clients specialist advice on small and large scale renewables for many years.  That advice extends to our own operations and our key commitments are listed within the Bell Ingram Environmental and Carbon Reduction Policy.

Bell Ingram is committed to: 

  • Complying with all relevant environmental legislation, regulations and approved codes of practice.
  • Protecting the environment by striving to prevent and minimise our contribution to pollution of land, air and water.
  • Seeking to keep waste to a minimum and maximise the efficient use of materials and resources
  • Managing and disposing of all waste in a responsible manner maximising on recycling.
  • Reviewing and continuously improving our environmental performance.
  • Reduce Bell Ingram’s Carbon Footprint for each individual office and as a whole, detailing and recording annual figures for energy/resource use.

Our Policy Statement is drawn up with the clear objective of providing a climate conscious approach to all aspects of work carried out by Bell Ingram. With the increasing pressure of  climate change and the need to conserve and replenish existing fuel and material resources, this document aims to ensure that our working practices demonstrate a realistic degree of responsibility towards preserving the environment.

Bell Ingram has achieved ISO14001 certification - the most recognised international environmental standard

We feel that our approach to work is now naturally energy efficient, using email and telephone wherever possible instead of lengthy journeys to meetings. With our wide coverage of offices (7 in Scotland and 3 in the north of England) we are able to cover large areas using our experienced teams based across the country, thus minimising travel and environmental impact.

The Company will take appropriate steps to ensure that the potential environmental impact is considered at all levels of their working procedures from the provision of professional services to the operating and maintenance procedures of its offices.  It will also advise staff of the potential areas available to reduce the amount of energy wasted in our day to day business and in the buildings we occupy, in order that we can reduce our Carbon Footprint in line with the targets set out in the Company’s Policy.
