eXPD8’s Commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)

At eXPD8 Field Marketing, we recognise the importance of corporate social responsibility (CSR) and are dedicated to making a positive impact on the environment. Our commitment to reducing our ecological footprint is reflected in various initiatives aimed at promoting sustainability and ethical practices. Here are some of the ways we strive to protect our planet:

Local Recruitment to Minimise Travel Emissions: Our model is inherently green. We recruit team members who live close to the stores they serve, thereby reducing travel miles. This approach significantly reduces travel emissions and our carbon footprint.

Responsible Disposal and Donation of IT Equipment: We adhere to certified processes for disposing of IT equipment, ensuring that these items are handled in an environmentally responsible manner, rather than contribute to e-waste.

We have previously donated tablets & other IT equipment to Southmead Hospital’s Children’s
Ward – North Bristol NHS Trust, which was well received by the staff and
children alike.

Mark Thurgood, Director of eXPD8 says,
“As part of our CSR objectives, we are always looking for ways to decrease our waste output and increase our community engagement, so donating digital tablets to schools is a good fit and we are always on the lookout for initiatives like this in the future.”

Promotion of Virtual Meetings: To minimise the need for travel and reduce our carbon footprint, we encourage virtual meetings wherever feasible and relevant. This practice not only decreases emissions but also fosters efficient communication within our team.

Recycling and Sustainable Energy Use: We are committed to recycling and reusing materials as much as possible. Moreover, we ensure that our energy suppliers are ethical and sustainable, further reducing our environmental impact.

Use of Recycling Bins Around the eXPD8 Central Office: We have implemented the use of recycling bins for paper, glass, and plastic throughout our central office. This initiative encourages our team to dispose of waste responsibly and supports our broader recycling goals.

Digital Documentation and Communication: In an effort to cut down on paper usage and waste, all our briefs, document signing, and communications are conducted digitally. This transition to digital operations helps us conserve resources and operate more efficiently.

In-Store Recycling Initiatives: We actively participate in various recycling bin merchandising activities in stores. Notable efforts include makeup recycling and toy recycling programmes in partnership with Wastebusters, demonstrating our commitment to supporting circular economy practices.

Comply with Supply/Partner Standards: We work closely with our global supply chain risk management experts, Achilles, to ensure compliance with the highest standards of ethical and sustainable practices. This collaboration helps us manage risks and maintain integrity across our supply chain.

Regular Review of Environmental and Ethical Sourcing Policy: We regularly review our Environmental and Ethical Sourcing policy to ensure it remains current and effective. This ongoing evaluation helps us adapt to new challenges and opportunities in sustainability, ensuring that our practices continue to align with our commitment to the environment and ethical standards.

While we acknowledge that there is always more to be done, we remain steadfast in our dedication to reducing our impact on the planet. At eXPD8, we believe that every small step contributes to a larger movement towards sustainability, and we are proud to be part of that journey.
