Marshalls knows that sustainability counts and that it can be levered for competitive advantage by those organisations which are innovative, fully engaged, trustworthy and there for the long haul. Guided by our brand values of leadership, excellence, trust and sustainability Marshalls’ team is empowered to make the right sustainable choices for our business day-in and day-out.
Marshalls has continued to make a rich contribution throughout 2016; engaging with governments both in the UK and overseas, collaborating with United Nations partners, working with regional & local networks and partners globally, developing innovative products which respond to environmental challenges, working to prevent modern slavery through education, and elevating transparency in our global supply chain.
We know too that by working effectively with our global supply chains we have the opportunity to make a significant impact in promoting human rights, fair labour practices, environmental progress and anti-corruption policies. While we’ve been doing this long enough to know that it can be challenging and complex, we remain passionate, dedicated and undeterred. It helps that we see our supply chain
as an extension of our workforce and community.
We have much to be proud of in terms of our work and efforts to uphold the UNGC principles throughout 2016 and yet much more to do as we press on further still. Marshalls won the 2016 PLC Award for Corporate Social Responsibility which acknowledges leadership, innovation and commitment in taking responsibility for the impact a company has on environmental and social wellbeing; a good and independent indicator of the progress that we’ve made.
