Astrimar was founded on strong principles of mutual trust and responsibility to its employees, clients, the wider community and the environment. Our Corporate Social Responsibility policy outlines our commitment to society as part of this and is underpinned by a number of company policies and procedures, including our Code of Conduct and Ethics. We are committed to ethical and sustainable business practices and take account of our social, economic and environmental impact in everything we do
We are committed to reducing our direct impact on the environment by actively managing our waste, emissions and consumption of natural resources, for example through proactive recycling and purchase of low energy equipment. We also encourage assessment of environmental risk as part of our work with our clients.
We are committed to a strong health and safety culture within the company and with our clients. We aim to create a workplace that encourages diversity and equal opportunities for all and are never influenced by issues of gender, race, creed, colour, age or personal disability. This is evident by the diversity across the whole company from our internship placements to our management team. We actively encourage professional development through our accredited CEPD scheme.
Contracting and Procurement
We are committed to ethical working and always conduct our own services honestly and honourably, and expect our clients and suppliers to do the same. We will always conform to relevant law and have strict procedures in place to ensure transparency and to monitor ethical practices.
We actively support learning and sharing of knowledge with industry, for example through our free webinars, mentoring and volunteer support. In 2020 our Managing Director was awarded TechX mentor of the year by OGTC. We also support the wider community through team fund raising challenges, donations and support for employees undertaking volunteer work. Our Inverurie office provided essential support for food banks during the Covid-19 pandemic.
