For Future Pipe Industries Sustainability is about making a difference and being accountable for the impact of our operations on the environment and the wider community. We are committed to sustainable development to ensure a better quality of life for everyone now and for generations to come. We embrace the principles of Sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) as laid down in the United Nations Global Compact. These principles are reflected in our strategy and the mechanisms and practices enabling us to achieve it.
We have a defined Sustainability structure and clear roles and responsibilities. Sustainability is the responsibility of every employee at Future Pipe Industries and we encourage, support and recognise contributions to it.
We are realistic. We understand that we must make improvements gradually and continually whilst sustaining and growing our business and working within our sphere of influence. We achieve this by setting and reviewing long, medium and short term goals and maintaining control of our operations. This policy along with a number of other Future Pipe Industries policies work together to deliver our Sustainability goals, e.g. QHSE Policy and our Future Pipe Industries Operating Framework.
We focus on 4 key areas,
Stakeholder and CommunityBuilding strong relationships for the good of the business, our customers, partners, employees and the wider community is part of the way we do business. We have identified our stakeholder groups and engage with each of them in ways which help build mutual understanding and benefit.
People & CultureWe believe in people and put them first in all we do. It is only through the actions of people that we will realise our three other Sustainability goals. We will build the relationships and culture needed to enable people to be productive, satisfied and dedicated corporate citizens.
EnvironmentalThe nature of our business means that we need to understand and carefully manage our impact on the environment. We also have a major responsibility and opportunity to convert the world’s pipe systems to the longer term, more environmentally friendly composite pipe.
EconomicWe conduct and grow our business ethically and build value by operating and growing responsibility guided by our Policies, procedures and governance. We hold ourselves accountable for environmental, social and economic impacts of our operations and have appropriate policies and control to manage them to ensure our growth is positive and enhancing to the industry we work in and the world around us.
Above all, Future Pipe Industries looks to take the right action for all stakeholders while delivering our Corporate Purpose – to deliver water and energy to the world in the most efficient and sustainable way.
