Our commitment to a more sustainable future
Xynomix is proud to support the United Nations’ Global Goals and integrate this into our day to day working practices. We have identified the following Goals as most relevant to our business:
- 3 – Good Health and Well-being,
- 4 – Quality Education,
- 8 – Decent Work and Economic Growth,
- 11 – Sustainable Cities and Communities and
- 13 – Climate Action
Currently we help to drive these goals by:
- Encouraging employees to recycle paper, plastic and glass to support Sustainable Development Goal 13.
- Using cloud based portals for document storage, in favour of hard copy filing. An example of which is by using electronic signatures for our legal documentation, both with employee and customer on boarding. Contributing to Sustainable Development Goal 13
- Encouraging equality and diversity throughout the organisation to support Sustainable Development Goals 4 and 8, with 40% of the senior management team and 22% of the technical team being women. We also have 30% of the workforce with ethnicities other than white British.
- Giving our employees multiple training days per year to broaden their knowledge and bridge any skill gaps, with access to technical training portals. Adding to Sustainable Development Goal 8.
- Supporting the health and wellbeing of the employees and subsequently Sustainable Development Goal 3 a Mental Health First Aider has been appointed.
In addition to what we’re already doing, Xynomix aims to:
- Support the local schools in science and IT learning requirements in order to future proof the industries, providing to Sustainable Development Goals 4, 8 and 11.
- Continue to raise money and awareness for the causes that our employees feel connected to; for example Macmillan Cancer Care and Mind in support of Sustainable Development Goal 3.
- Build climate and community guidelines into the supplier management policy to assist in contributing to Sustainable Development Goals 8, 11 and 13.
- Build practices into the work travel policy to help reduce the carbon footprint of the business in support of Sustainable Development Goal 13.
- Continuously educate the employees and our supply chain to help drive these initiatives outside Xynomix.
