CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

We genuinely care about the welfare of our people, the quality of our work and the standards of service we offer our clients. At the same time, we recognise and embrace our responsibilities to the wider community and the environment. Wherever we have the opportunity to make a positive difference, we take it.

Brighter for our people

We hold the internationally recognised ISO 9001:2008 (quality) and ISO 14001:2004 (environment) accreditations, providing a solid foundation for ethical, sustainable and quality driven business growth. We look after our people and make sure that everyone is involved and has an input into achieving shared goals. We support flexible and remote working, run an apprenticeship scheme, encourage social and team activities, and regularly survey our staff to see where we can improve and what we can do better. Because we recruit very carefully, we have the confidence in our people to offer them a structured career path and a programme of continuous personal development. This inspires them to stay with us longer and to achieve more.

Brighter for our clients

We believe in building honest and open relationships with our clients based on integrity, transparency, good communications and ethical business practices. We also work closely with our clients to help meet specific environmental objectives. With a free Green Audit, we can offer an alternative choice of environmentally friendly products and services without compromising cost or performance. In addition, our team advises on waste disposal in accordance with the WEEE Directive, sets up waste collection services for recycling a range of office products and offers closed loop recycling. We can also advise on energy and light-saving solutions for your work environment.

Brighter for our partners

Our preferred suppliers and specialist business partners are chosen not just for their service capabilities and price competiveness, but also for their ethical business policies, health and safety compliance and ability to source environmentally responsible products. We ensure our suppliers adhere to the guidelines and operational standards set by bodies such as the International Labour Organisation and Sedex and we are committed to driving improvements in responsible and ethical business practices throughout our supply chain.

Brighter for the community

MBM Omega supports a variety of charitable causes through a programme of fundraising events and product donations. We also operate a cartridge recycling initiative that raises funds for charity as well as benefitting the environment.

Brighter for the environment

We hold the rigorous ISO 14001:2004 certification and this supports our on-going commitment to identifying, controlling and improving the environmental impact of our activities, products and services. It’s a commitment that’s documented in our Environmental Policy and is reflected in every area of our business. Our environmental performance is monitored by a system of regular audits and backed by a programme of continuous development.

We help our clients make environmentally responsible buying decisions by highlighting and advising on the environmentally friendly product and service options within our range and we are continuously expanding our choice of greener alternatives. We encourage clients to order online and consolidate purchases to reduce unnecessary deliveries and packaging. To minimise waste, recyclable and reusable packaging is used wherever possible and all waste is disposed of responsibly.

Our warehouse and logistics team use sophisticated planning techniques to ensure efficient delivery processes and our modern vehicle fleet complies with EU directives on low fuel consumption and emissions.
