Corporate Social Responsibility


What does Corporate Social Responsibility mean to Brown & Newirth?
Essentially an umbrella to encapsulate how we impact and engage with employees, the community, suppliers and the environment.
Brown & Newirth commits significantly to our four pillar policy, highlighted below;

  • We value our Employees

Brown & Newirth is an inclusive organisation committed to fairness, equality of opportunity and diversity in all its employment practices, policies and procedures. We are committed to ensuring we have a healthy and educated workforce whose views are listened to and respected. We nurture ambition and ensure that all employees can develop relevant skills and knowledge to enrich their contribution and carve their own career path.

  • We value our Community

We are committed to building mutually supportive relationships with the wider community including local and national concerns. At Brown & Newirth we are actively involved in charitable contribution (time and money) and encourage our staff to engage in this process.

  • We value our Suppliers

We have committed to ensure that all our suppliers have excellent business ethics and meet our high standards of ethical behaviour and practices. We aim to develop relationships built on shared trust and communal responsibility.

  • We value our Environment

We have committed to ensure that we reduce our environmental impact and continue to improve our environmental performance as an integral part of our business strategy and operating methods. At Brown & Newirth we believe that organisations are responsible for achieving good environmental practice and should operate in a sustainable manner and we will encourage our stakeholders to do the same.
