Environmental Social Governance
IBMG is committed to every single employee within our business, to the communities where our people live and work, and to the environment that we all share.
We are committed to operating responsibly and our Environmental Social Governance (ESG) plan is a key driver to becoming the leading merchant that is the best to work, best to do business with and a merchant that delivers the best returns.
Everyday we work towards being an employer of choice. We support the professional development of our colleagues through training programs and reward colleagues who contribute to our vision of being the best merchant in the industry. We offer support through Employee Assistance Programs & we have fully trained Mental Health First Aiders on hand to support our people when they need it most.
We have a responsibility towards the communities in which we operate, and we believe that every single person can make a difference. We actively encourage and support our employees in their efforts to make positive contributions through fundraising, donations and volunteering in the communities where they work and live. We have charities of the year in many of our local areas from the RNLI, Kent Air Ambulance & Teenage Cancer Trust.
We are obsessive about achieving the highest standards of Health & Safety. This commitment applies to every single one of our employees and anyone affected by our activities, including customers, suppliers, the communities in which we operate and the environment.
We believe that a strong HSE culture, is the result of active HSE management systems, visible leadership, and engaged employees. We measure this through our Colleague Engagement survey every year.
We provide an exclusive whistleblowing hotline for our teams to enable them to let us know if something isn’t up to standard.
