• Midwich launches CSR commitment with new programme

        • Midwich has launched its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme. On Friday 16th August, Mark Lowe, Managing Director of Midwich (UK & Ireland), launched the initiatives to Midwich’s 250+ staff members based at the head office in Norfolk.

          Midwich‘s internal CSR team, consisting of eight staff members from across the business, alongside ongoing feedback from other employees, created the new CSR programme which covers four key areas and initiatives: people, environment, community and charity.

          To ensure Midwich and its employees remain committed, they have created pledges within each area:

          People

          Throughout 2019-20, Midwich is giving their employees the opportunity to volunteer their time during working hours to take part in worthwhile community initiatives.

          Environment

          By December 2019, Midwich will be eradicating the use of non-recyclable cups at their head office which is home to over 250+ employees. In 2019-20, Midwich committed to ensuring our marketing material is 100 per cent recyclable. At the same time, reduce the number of printed literature distributed to stakeholders.

          Community

          Throughout 2019/20, Midwich will be supporting local worthwhile community projects, as voted for by employees.

          Charity

          Throughout 2019-20, Midwich’s employees and their in-house charity committee are committed to raising between £40,000 to £50,000 for their chosen charity, Mind.

          Mark Lowe, Midwich Managing Director (UK & Ireland) said, “we take great pride in listening to what’s important to our people and wider stakeholders. With this in mind, we’re delighted to launch our CSR programme and show how committed Midwich is to the community we operate in, to reduce the negative impact we have on the environment and by supporting local worthwhile charitable initiatives that are important to our staff.  

          “We have a responsibility to ensure we look after the world we live in; we still have a very long way to go but this is a positive start and we are committed to ensuring a long-term sustainable approach.”
