Corporate and Social Responsibility
We strive to act ethically and be socially and environmentally responsible while conducting our business. Our CSR activities are around three key areas: our people, our communities, and health, safety and the environment.
We believe that having empowered people, who understand their responsibilities, who display sound judgement and who act in an ethical way, is key to the ongoing success and development of Abcam.
Our Annual Report and Accounts 2016 includes a summary of our 2015/16 activities.
We play a positive role in our local communities through charitable donations, partnerships and sponsorships.
Attracting and retaining the best talent is crucial to the success of our business. We provide employees with a positive and healthy work environment, where they are listened to and rewarded and recognised for their contributions.
Health, safety and the environment
We provide a safe work environment for employees and adhere to legal requirements and best practice standards. Global annual audits are undertaken at all sites using internal cross-site audit methodologies, supported, where appropriate, by external consultants. These audits ensure health and safety compliance, and we continue to make significant improvements to our offices to ensure all our employees have a safe and comfortable working environment. To minimise our environmental impact we continually look at new ways to increase the sustainability of our processes.
