Fighting climate change

Fighting climate change

How we will reduce environmental impacts. Our business is ISO14001 accredited, in addition we have recently produced and published our Carbon Reduction Plan which underpins our commitment to achieve Net Zero by 2050. This runs in tandem to our existing commitment to the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) which we signed up to in February 2021. Throughout contract delivery our objectives are:

• To raise awareness on environmental issues internally and work to reduce our carbon footprint by considering environmental impacts in all we do.
• To comply with the law, relevant standards, client requirements and best practice to minimise our environmental impacts as far as reasonably practical.
• To ensure our EMS is continually improved and meets and exceeds stakeholder expectations.
• To provide processes, training and mentoring (where needed) to enable the technical delivery of solutions to our clients with minimal environmental impacts.
Covid-19 recovery

Covid-19 recovery

Creating employment, re-training and return to work opportunities for those left unemployed by COVID-19 (MAC 1.1).
Throughout the global pandemic we have continued to offer employment opportunities to both graduates and to those whose livelihoods have been affected by COVID and who wish to work in the engineering and technology sector. Over the course of the last year, we recruited 177 (Jan - Dec 21) individuals, of whom 45 were graduates. We expect to recruit a further 200 full time staff over the course of this FY (143 perm / 168 including placements already accepted and due to start) with a target of 51 graduates, 16 summer students and 9 year in industry placements.

Supporting organisations and businesses to manage and recover from the impacts of COVID-19 (MAC 1.2).
Under the ‘Business Heroes’ scheme, we are one of three companies sponsoring membership of Devon & Plymouth Chamber of Commerce. Through this scheme we fund the membership of Social Enterprises operating to the benefit of communities right across the county of Devon.

Improving workplace conditions that support the COVID-19 recovery effort (MAC 1.5)
In response to Covid-19, our business moved swiftly to remote working, providing industry-leading tools to aid communication and collaboration during this period. We continue to engage with colleagues at all levels of the business through both informal channels like team meetings and more formal mechanisms such as employee surveys in order to gauge what support is needed to create a safe and enjoyable workplace that is sustainable and will support the COVID-19 recovery effort.
Tackling economic inequality

Create diverse supply chains (MAC 3.1)
We believe diverse supply chains hold the key, not only to promoting innovation and value, but also flexibility and resilience within our supply chain. A significant number of our approved suppliers are SMEs. As the Prime Contractor for the MoD’s ‘Serapis’ Lot 6 we have helped Dstl reach new suppliers, small and medium-sized enterprises and academia.

Support to innovation and disruptive technologies (MAC 3.2)
We have extensive experience of supporting innovation in our supply chain and pride ourselves on our track record of collaboration with SMEs and Academia, working at the cutting edge of technology.
As a supplier to the Government Office for Science’s ‘Futures Framework’ we regularly collaborate with academia and SMEs to help public sector clients identify and capitalise upon opportunities presented by innovative and disruptive technology.

Identify and manage cyber security risks in the delivery of the contract and the supply chain (MAC 3.5)
We are a Cyber Essentials Plus (CE+) accredited organisation; we actively work with our suppliers to ensure they either have, or are working towards, CE as a minimum. Currently 50% of our Supply Chain hold a valid CE certificate. For those suppliers who don't hold CE, we offer advice and support to help them build cyber resilience into their business.

Our team of over 60 dedicate Cyber and Security professionals can help you understand, mitigate and manage potential cyber risks associated with this contract and to drive cyber resilience in your supply chain.

On behalf of Dstl, we undertook an extensive research study on improving the resilience of organisations to cyber-attacks from a people and process perspective. We would be delighted to share the findings and the resultant ‘PREPARE’ model with you and your wider Supply Chain in raise Cyber Awareness throughout the duration of this contract.
Equal opportunity

Equal opportunity

We conduct regular Equality & Diversity surveys of our organisation to understand exactly how we are doing against our diversity targets. Alongside this, through our Health and Safety processes, we conduct an annual survey of our staff to understand any challenges they might be facing and what changes we can make to our infrastructure, processes and tools that will ensure an inclusive and accessible working environment for all our employees. To deliver on out commitment to Equal Opportunity we offer:
• Inclusive and Accessible recruitment. All our recruitment literature carries a clear pledge to adapt any part of our process as necessary to ensure that our recruitment and retention practices are inclusive, accessible and meet the needs of those with a disability.
• Working conditions that promotes retention and progression. We are a ‘Time to Change’ employer, committed to treating physical and mental illness on an equal footing. We use a professional Occupational Health provider to advise us on adaptations we can make to our business to meet the needs of colleagues with disabilities. We also support our staff through corporate membership of a private healthcare scheme in recognition of the fact that most disabilities are acquired through an individual’s working life.
• Equal Pay and Progression. Our HR team conduct regular equal pay audits and review promotion across the business unit to ensure we are meeting our commitment to equal pay and progression.
• In-work progression and the development of skills – To support the development of digital skills in our business, we have committed to an investment of £1.5m over the course of this Financial Year. For staff members with disabilities, we will engage specialist service providers to tailor the learning package to the specific needs of that individual’s disabilities.


Support health and wellbeing in the workforce (MAC 7.1)
We are committed to supporting the wellbeing of our staff. In addition to the private healthcare cover available to all our employees (and their dependents if they so choose) we are signatories to the Time to Change Pledge which demonstrates our commitment to mental health.

We are rolling out mental health awareness and training across the business. We have also put in place a number of mental health ‘champions’ to provide a network of support available to all. As a result, we are better able to monitor our staff wellbeing and have seen minimal disruption to our ability to deliver our projects.

Our wellbeing strategy focuses on 5 pillars of wellbeing:

• Physical - Making healthy lifestyle choices that help you have the energy for work and life.
• Financial - Knowing when your money is coming in and going out and being prepared for current and future financial obligations.
• Emotional - Coping with normal stresses, handling life’s ups and downs and realising your potential. Additionally, as a ‘Time to Change’ employer we treat mental and physical health issues with parity, actively supporting and engaging in discussions around mental health.
• Social - Engaging in meaningful relationships and connections with individuals and the community.
• Personal - Having a sense of accomplishment and achievement in your home and work life
