Environmental, Social, and Governance Principles

Orestone is resolutely dedicated to embedding Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) principles at the core of our strategic planning and operational processes. This steadfast commitment is far-reaching, impacting every aspect of our business model from conception to execution. By prioritising ESG values, we ensure that our operations not only comply with the highest standards of sustainability and ethical conduct but also actively contribute to the betterment of society and the protection of our environment.

Our approach involves a meticulous integration of ESG considerations into every decision-making process, reflecting our dedication to responsible business practices. This begins with the initial development phase of our services and products, where we carefully assess the environmental footprint, social impact, and governance structures. We strive to innovate and provide solutions that are not only efficient and effective but also environmentally friendly and socially responsible.

In the delivery of our services, Orestone maintains a clear focus on minimising environmental impact while maximising social benefit. We actively engage with stakeholders, including scheme managers, housing associations, and their residents, to ensure our solutions meet their needs in a sustainable and ethical manner. Our governance practices are transparent and accountable, underlining our commitment to integrity and ethical leadership in the security systems industry.

Orestone’s ESG commitment is a testament to our belief that successful business strategies should align with global sustainability goals and ethical standards. By integrating these values deeply within our strategic framework and daily operations, we aim to lead by example and make a positive, lasting impact on our community and the planet.

Here, we outline ESG’s significance and our approach to embedding these principles into the essence of Orestone:

The Pillars of ESG:

– Environmental Stewardship: Recognising the critical challenges posed by climate change, we focus on minimising our ecological impact, adopting sustainable practices, and pioneering in green technologies. Our aim is to safeguard resources for future generations while contributing to the fight against climate change.

– Social Responsibility: We prioritise the well-being of our employees, customers, communities, and other stakeholders, promoting ethical labour practices, diversity, inclusion, and community engagement. This commitment strengthens our stakeholder relationships, enhancing loyalty and our brand reputation.

– Governance Ethics: Our governance framework emphasises ethical conduct, legal compliance, and effective risk management, ensuring transparency and accountability. This foundation is crucial for maintaining trust and integrity in all our operations.

Broader ESG Implications:

– Financial Performance and Risk Management: Evidence supports that ESG principles contribute to financial resilience and risk mitigation, helping identify and manage potential threats to our business.

– Innovation and Competitive Advantage: ESG values inspire us to innovate, creating solutions that address environmental and social challenges while distinguishing us in the market.

– Regulatory Compliance and Attraction of Talent and Investment: Staying ahead of evolving regulations and appealing to conscientious employees and investors are key benefits of our ESG commitment.

Deepening Our ESG Integration:

– Environmental Responsibility:Beyond mere compliance, we lead in sustainability, focusing on reducing emissions, enhancing energy efficiency, and minimising waste across our operations.

– Social Commitment: We are dedicated to fostering a diverse and inclusive workplace, and our services aim to improve safety, independence, and quality of life for users.

– Governance Excellence: Transparency, integrity, and accountability are the cornerstones of our governance, ensuring our actions align with stakeholders’ long-term interests.

We transparently share our carbon emissions data, showing a commitment to reducing these year on year. Our initiatives for sustainability include setting ambitious targets for emission reductions and working with Local Authorities and Housing Associations in line with their commitments and seeing how we can work together to increase these even further.

Orestone’s journey towards fully incorporating ESG principles reflects our core values and vision for the future. Our approach goes beyond compliance, aiming for leadership and innovation in sustainability, social responsibility, and ethical governance. By embedding ESG values in every facet of our operations, we not only aim to generate a positive impact on the world but also secure the resilience and success of our business. We believe in the crucial role businesses play in promoting a sustainable and equitable future and invite all to join us in this transformative journey.
