The United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals 2030 (UNSDGs) act as a blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all, with a view of addressing poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace and justice. For businesses, strong corporate governance plays a vital role in this agenda, which is something that Speedy are committed to.
As a business we strive to maintain high standards, reporting with accuracy and transparency and maintaining compliance with the laws, rules and regulations that govern our business, which is also of key importance to us as a publicly listed company.
We have been awarded "ISS ESG Prime Status" as an ESG leader in Support Services. This is awarded to companies with an ESG performance above the sector-specific Prime threshold, which means we are fulfilling ambitious absolute performance requirements.
Our business has robust governance controls and processes in place covering structure and oversight, code of conduct, reporting and the integrity and security of systems. This enables us to make effective decisions, comply with relevant law, rules and regulations whilst meeting the needs of our external stakeholders. We also believe in promoting equality and diversity within the workforce and we work hard to foster that culture within all areas of our business.
We work to leading industry certifications and accreditations to ensure best practice, while maintaining the standards our people, customers and suppliers demand.
Our current certifications include:
- ISO 9001 for quality management
- ISO 17020* for the operation of various types of bodies performing inspections
- ISO 27001 for information security
- ISO 14001 for environmental management
- ISO 50001 for energy management
- OHSAS 18001 for health and safety management
