Our hands-on approach to CSR
At CBS our commitment to hard work and helpfulness extends to our wider community. This means playing an active part in community initiatives and offering real practical assistance to charitable projects in the area.
The whole CBS team is involved in these activities. Not only do we benefit from a feeling of satisfaction and achievement, but we’re able to make a real difference to the projects we support. Much of our work is delivered through our involvement with Connect Reading, which has helped us to achieve a Pride of Reading award.
Examples of our projects include the Ascot News Annual Toys and Tins Christmas Appeal and donation of furniture and services to charities such as The Beale Park Charitable Trust, Launchpad, Reading Voluntary Action and Berkshire County Blind Society.
We are also passionate about our environmental responsibilities. We always try to work with suppliers who use sustainable materials and we have conducted an internal audit to help us develop an environmental policy statement covering areas such as energy use, waste management and recycling. This document also provides us with a baseline as we work towards ISO14001 accreditation.
