Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Statement

At ThirtyThree, we are dedicated to making a positive impact on our community, environment, and society. Our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives are integral to our identity and operations, reflecting our commitment to ethical practices, community support, and environmental sustainability.

Supporting Our Communities

We believe in the power of giving back to the communities where we live and work. Our efforts include:

  • Volunteering and Fundraising: We support our communities through various volunteering and fundraising activities, encouraging our colleagues to tackle local socio-economic issues by sharing their skills and experience.
  • Paid Volunteer Day: Every employee is entitled to one paid day per year to volunteer for a cause they are passionate about, promoting active community engagement.
  • Matched Funding and Payroll Giving: We offer a matched funding scheme and payroll giving scheme (UK only) to enable our employees to support causes close to their hearts, amplifying their charitable contributions.

Charity Partnership with St Luke's

We are proud to partner with St Luke's, a community hub in south Islington providing services, activities, and events for local residents of all ages, including after-school clubs, employment support, and community cookery classes. Through this partnership, we aim to make a meaningful difference in the lives of those in our community. Our efforts include:

  • Fundraising Events: Organizing and participating in various fundraising activities, such as charity runs, auctions, and community fairs, to raise funds for St Luke's.
  • Volunteer Work: Encouraging our employees to volunteer their time and skills to support St Luke's initiatives, from administrative support to hands-on care, tea dances and Christmas phone calls to those alone.
  • Branding and Support: Using our expertise in employer branding to create compelling campaigns and provide comprehensive support that raises awareness about the vital services St Luke's provides.

Environmental Stewardship

Sustainability is at the forefront of our operations. We are committed to understanding and thinking about how we can use our resources wisely and deliver our services to clients in an environmentally sustainable way. Our key environmental initiatives include:

  • Performance Monitoring: We measure, manage, and monitor our environmental performance to continually improve and maximize our positive impacts.
  • Compliance and Prevention: We comply with all relevant environmental legislation and regulations, seeking to prevent pollution to air, land, and water wherever possible.
  • Promotion of Responsibility: We encourage all our businesses and clients to be environmentally responsible, relying on our people to work in an environmentally sustainable way.

Commitment to Human Rights

We are dedicated to running our business in alignment with the principles of human rights as set out in the United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UNUDHR) and the International Labour Organisation (ILO) fundamental conventions on labour rights. This includes:

  • Ethical Practices: Ensuring fair labour practices and respecting the rights of all individuals within our organization.
  • Support and Education: Providing ongoing training and resources to our employees to foster a culture of respect, inclusivity, and ethical behaviour.

Community Engagement and Impact

In addition to our partnership with St Luke's, we strive to be active members of the London and Bristol communities. Our community engagement efforts include:

  • Local Sponsorships: Supporting local events and cultural initiatives that enrich our communities.
  • Educational Outreach: Collaborating with schools and universities to provide mentorship, internships, and educational resources for students, with an emphasis on young people from less advantaged backgrounds.

At ThirtyThree, our CSR initiatives are a testament to our belief that businesses have a crucial role in creating a better world. We are committed to continuing our work in these areas and making a positive, lasting impact on our communities, our environment, and our society.

By embracing these CSR principles, we hope to inspire others to join us in our mission to create a more compassionate, inclusive, and sustainable world.
