Corporate Social Responsibility

CSR - Children gardening - compressed

Centor is passionate about running a profitable business but we are just as passionate about our mission to be a socially responsible business.

We have always taken a very broad view of who our stakeholders are. They include shareholders, employees, suppliers, society and the environment. This means that when making decisions about how we do business and who we do business with, shareholder value is not the supreme consideration but is one factor among many stakeholder interests. This is one of the reasons we became a certified B Corp, which you can find out more about here.

Being a good corporate citizen is an essential part of how Centor does business. We have strong and longstanding links with charities large and small. We care passionately about them and we have a continuing commitment to helping and supporting them whenever and however we can.

Our corporate social responsibility strategy starts at home – with our staff and managers and the way we run our business.

Our commitment to our employees and to wider society is part of our fundamental business philosophy.

We live and breathe our CSR principles in everything we do.

  • Community – volunteering, giving, donating and teaching
  • Environment – energy consumption, sustainable travel, green procurement
  • Workplace – diversity, equal opportunities, work-life balance, fair reward
  • Marketplace – ethical procurement, supporting local business and supplier diversity

Being a good Corporate Citizen is a key ingredient of the Centor Difference.

Here’s how we do it:
