At BBSA Associates we believe that building partnerships with our Stakeholders are the best way to serve our long-term future. By nurturing relationships with our clients, suppliers, third-parties and other commercial partners, we can positively influence the communities in which we operate.
BBSA’s corporate interactions are driven by our belief in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). We set high internal standards, and our CSR policy continues to guide the development of programmes focussing on areas where we can make a significant difference.
Our take on CSR
At BBSA we firmly believe our responsibilities to the communities we work in are more than purely commercial. We will always look at ways we can improve our social and environmental impact when dealing with our Stakeholders.
BBSA are committed to sustaining and improving our performance. We continually review the latest technical developments, changing scientific evidence, as well as costs, customer concerns and expectations. This continuous cycle of feedback and review steers the development and implementation of our social and environmental policies and procedures. We constantly monitor our performance, set new objectives for improvements and report our progress to Stakeholders to deliver the high standards expected of BBSA.
How we do CSR
At BBSA we undertake to comply with (or exceed) all relevant corporate legislation. However, we won’t stop there. In situations where there is no existing legislation, we will strive to lead the industry by raising the bar in the development and implementation of new standards in best-practice.
Honesty and accountability
At BBSA we take pride in the manner in which we conduct our commercial operations. Integrity is at the heart of how we communicate our policies, objectives, and performance
to our Stakeholders and others with interest in our activities. To positively shape our business, we actively seek the views and opinions of our Stakeholders and we invite them to communicate openly with us.
BBSA will always conduct our dealings with integrity, courtesy, honouring our trading commitments with Stakeholders. We aim to establish trusting, long-term relationships with our suppliers and provide work for locally based specialists and experts. We are committed to fair-trade with our suppliers and will continue to communicate our expectations to them in the areas of health, safety, worker welfare and good environmental practice.
In our operations, BBSA pledges to take all reasonable steps promote best-practice and to minimise our environmental impact. We continuously review our practices and performance, identifying ways we can improve our energy efficiency, water usage and waste disposal systems, lessening our impact on the environment.
BBSA’s priority is to build and maintain close relationships with our customers, suppliers and the local communities we are part of. We actively encourage our Partners to consider the needs of others and involve themselves in public service and worthwhile community projects. BBSA are enthusiastic about the role business can play in improving social and environmental conditions and welcome communication with our Stakeholders as we continue to shape our policies and improve performance.
