CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

We are committed to excellence in our approach to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), both in terms of what we do and how we communicate it. We ensure that business practices are socially responsible and environmentally sustainable across the business.


Doing the right thing for the environment, community and our people forms an integral part of the way we work at BCM.  We support a full CSR programme to ensure we can deliver fantastic products to our customers in an ethical and sustainable way.

 

Community

Our teams are committed to raising funds for the European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer Research Fund (EORTC Cancer Research Fund) and we support the SPECTAcolor Biobank, which is an initiative within the framework of the research program of the EORTC. The EORTC is a pan-European non-profit research organization whose mission is to improve survival and quality of life of patients with colorectal cancer.  All of our sites also support charities and causes local to our operations.

Environment

We consistently strive to minimize the impact of our business on the environment and have strategies in place to reduce water consumption and our carbon footprint.  We are focused on waste reduction by avoiding landfill and improving our recycling process.

Marketplace

BCM is committed to providing consistent and high-quality products to its customers. This requires diverse, class-leading and responsible suppliers who are committed to providing high-quality, innovative, sustainable and value for money products and services throughout our relationship with the supplier.

Workplace

We value our colleagues and have our 'BCM Stars' program, a monthly recognition scheme in the UK, which recognizes and rewards those who go above and beyond.


The results of our annual 'Your Voice' employee survey in the UK help to build team action plans, so that we address what matters to our colleagues.


Health and safety is also paramount to us and we believe that everyone's behavior contributes to a safe and healthy BCM. We continue to support our people through training and development, so that they can successfully meet the challenges of our industry.
