Following a Group-wide review of corporate social responsibility (CSR) in 2014, we laid down a policy, and established a cross-department panel of representatives to champion our CSR policies and initiatives.
This formalised many principles which we had already followed for some time, and which reflect our fundamental ethics. People’s safety; looking after our employees; working to develop ever more environmentally-sound drainage solutions; supporting charity and local communities are at the heart of the Lanes Group.
- enterprise and community
- environment and sustainability
In January 2018, upon further reflection of all the actions we have laid out and enforced within our CSR policy we have updated our policy and laid out a new plan, taking the company to 2025 and beyond. Click here to download and print our latest CSR policy.
In May 2018 Lanes Group have put together a charity cycling challenge in order to help raise money for the 5 x 5 charities that Lanes have partnered with until 2023. The first event will take place at the Group's head office in Leeds on June 6th with other depots following in the weeks after. This is the start of what we hope to become an annual event used to raise money for the 5 x 5 charities as well as the nominated company charities there-after. If you would like to donate to one of our selected charities click here.
Lanes Group plc is working with the national charity Hand on Heart to donate a defibrillator and provide training on the unit, together worth £3000, to a school close to each of its depots across the UK.
The devices will be available to help save lives of anyone in the school or living nearby who suffers a sudden cardiac arrest.
