We are growing S⁴Capital in a responsible and sustainable way, for the long-term benefit of all, making a meaningful difference and leaving a light footprint.
We think that actual impacts and outcomes are more important than the lengthy tick-box approach of traditional sustainability reports. We’d prefer to spend time and resources applying our creative digital skills and knowledge to create modern solutions – for our operations, our clients and the wider world.
Nevertheless, we know that if we can’t see where the issues are within the Group, we won’t know if anything needs fixing.
As a relatively young enterprise, we are refining our sustainability and corporate responsibility approach, drawing on the practices already embedded in our businesses. For example, MediaMonks has been a member of the United Nations Global Compact since 2012 and reports annually, following GRI guidelines. We will begin reporting as a Group in a more formal way in 2020. In the meantime, our basic principles are set out below.
The Group aims to ensure that all our people work in an environment that supports diversity and fosters a culture of dignity and respect. It is committed to supporting employment policies and practices that support equal opportunities and non-discrimination, and that exceed mere compliance with relevant local legislation and accepted practice.
The Group’s policies and practices of equal opportunities and non-discrimination ensure that an individual’s ability, aptitude and talent are the sole determinants in recruitment, training, career development and progression opportunities, rather than their age, beliefs, physical challenges, ethnic origin, gender, marital status, race, religion or sexual orientation.
We will begin reporting gender pay data from 2020.
Our companies target specific Sustainability Development Goals where we can make the most difference. We support the Ten Principles of the UN’s Global Compact on Human Rights, Labour, Environment, and Anti-Corruption.
We are committed to our obligations to comply with the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
Our businesses make a difference in the wider world, by partnering with clients to amplify important social and environmental issues in award-winning campaigns, and through pro bono work, donations and local volunteering.
We will begin reporting GHG emissions from 2020.
