Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is an integral part of UK Power Reserve, aligned to the company’s Vision, Mission and Values. Our CSR strategy is built on the three pillars of People, Communities and Sustainable Development.
Our CSR strategy is aligned to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 2030. The SDGs offer a global framework for private companies, governments and public-sector entities that provide transparency and accountability. They have been adopted by the UK Government and key stakeholders, collaboratively working towards sustainable development. The eight priority SDGs most relevant to our business are depicted below.
Both our CR pillars and commitment to the SDGs are aligned to Sembcorp’s sustainability strategy, which incorporates an integrated approach addressing environmental, social and governance challenges and opportunities. In 2017 alone, more than 30 UKPR employees fund-raised for local, national and international charities, including the Sepsis Trust, Grapevine and UNICEF. UKPR matched these fundraising efforts.
From April 2018 – April 2019 we partnered with St Basils, a charity focused on youth homelessness in the West Midlands. We supported the organisation with fundraising activities and paid the electricity bill for their Solihull hub for 12 months – covering 21% of the total running costs – find out more about our year of partnership here.
