At Speedy, our goal is to become one of the most respected support services businesses.
We are working with our employees, our customers and our suppliers to ensure that sustainability sits at the heart of everything that they and we do. This means a commitment to reducing carbon, increasing efficiencies, trading safely and ethically and ultimately helping our customers become the organisations they aspire to be. Were doing this because we understand the world has to change to meet a new set of social, economic and climate challenges. At Speedy, we are ready to play our part.
What is One Plan?
One Plan is an inspired direction for the way we do things; quite simply it embodies our commitment to respond to the changing world we live in.
Speedy has established a pro-active approach to the sustainability agenda through our corporate responsibility activity. Our first corporate responsibility report was published in 2006 and we have publicly reported non- financial KPIs since 2007. However, this year we are raising the bar once again with our ambition of becoming one of the most respected support services businesses. One Plan is the overarching programme which brings together all of the activity that we are engaged in, whether that is with our customers, suppliers, employees, the communities in which we operate or with our wider stakeholders.
One Plan offers practical solutions and advice to help you make improvements. It’s about listening and understanding customers’ needs and opportunities, identifying market challenges and using our expertise and relationships to find more responsible, sustainable solutions. Most importantly, One Plan recognises that sustainability is about more than simply protecting the environment. It balances the importance of green issues with Health & Safety and long-term commercial success. From efficiency to productivity, to protecting both human and natural resources, One Plan looks at the bigger picture to help you operate more effectively, efficiently and sustainably.

Were not just talking about change, we are bringing about change; with what we do and how we do it. Part of this ethos is to educate our employees and make suppliers aware of the issues with which our industry is faced, therefore inspiring everyone to consider their actions and the impact of those actions, and encouraging them to act responsibly. By engaging with all of our stakeholders, we believe that we can provide our customers with an unrivalled range of products, services and total solutions to help them to meet their sustainability objectives.
Our commitment to responsible and sustainable business practice can be found in our One Plan Report 2012. And, our primary and secondary KPIs for 2010 - 2015 can be seen in our Responsibility Roadmap.
