Corporate & Social Responsibility

Our Commitment

Dinstock recognises that integrating social, environmental and ethical responsibilities into the governance of businesses ensures long-term success, competitiveness and sustainability. Further, CSR makes business sense as companies with effective CSR have the image of socially responsible companies, achieve sustainable growth in their operations in the long run, and their products and services are likely to be preferred by customers.

Dinstock aspires to be a forward thinking and responsible business with its employees, the local community and the environment at the forefront of its day-to-day activities.

To achieve our CSR ambitions we have formulated a strategy which includes the following:

  • Providing support for the wellbeing and development of our employees.
  • Minimising our impact on the environment.
  • Improving the positive impact on the communities we live and work in.
  • Developing our partnerships with suppliers.

Employee Relations

  • Dinstock will ensure that employees are treated fairly and with dignity and consideration for their goals and aspirations, and that diversity in the workplace is embraced.
  • Dinstock will strictly adhere to the Government’s policy on equal pay and the minimum living wage.
  • Dinstock is committed to providing equal opportunity in all aspects of employment and will not engage in or tolerate unlawful workplace conduct, including discrimination, intimidation, or harassment.
  • Dinstock will not tolerate human rights abuses and will not engage or be complicit in any activity that solicits or encourages human rights abuse.

Environment Health & Safety

  • Dinstock is committed to protecting the health and safety of all individuals affected by our activities, including our employees, contractors and the public.
  • Dinstock will provide a safe and healthy working environment and will not compromise the health and safety of any individual. Our goal is to have no accidents and mitigate impacts on the environment by working with our stakeholders, peers and others to promote responsible environmental practices and continuous improvement.
  • Dinstock is committed to environmental protection and stewardship.
  • Dinstock recognizes that pollution prevention, biodiversity and resource conservation are key to a sustainable environment and will effectively integrate these concepts into our business decision-making.
  • All employees are responsible and accountable for contributing to a safe working environment, for fostering safe working attitudes, and for operating in an environmentally responsible manner.

Community Investment

  • Dinstock is committed to recruit its employees from the local community, which provides opportunities for local people to enjoy working within close proximity to their homes, cutting travel times and additional costs.
  • Dinstock is also committed to supporting the local community outside its business activities.

Supply Chain

  • Dinstock will advise its partners, contractors, and suppliers of its Corporate Social Responsibility Policy, and will work with them to achieve consistency with this policy.
  • We do not, and will not, engage indirectly in or otherwise encourage bribery. We are committed to the prevention, deterrence and detection of bribery. We have zero- tolerance towards bribery. We aim to maintain anti-bribery compliance “business as usual”, rather than as a one-off exercise.
  • Dinstock is aware of the Modern Slavery Act and will ensure to the best of its ability that modern day slavery is not taking place in the business or its supply chains.
