Social Value

Grafton Merchanting GB is committed to working to a set of business principles and standards which ensure the sustainability and improvement of both our company and the environment in which we conduct business.

Throughout the company we work hard to increase focus on the balanced consideration of economic, social and environmental matters.

Our sustainability model which is based around the well renowned three pillars of; ‘people, profit and planet’. When we break this down into 9 focal areas, it allows us to tackle sustainability across the business in a more manageable and succinct manner.

Targets are set within each focal area; these are reviewed and updated on an annual basis, to indicate whether progress is being made or if improvements can be made in specific areas.

Health and Safety

At Grafton Merchanting GB, Health & Safety is a key principle of our company. It is paramount that our policy is executed by all employees to provide a safe and competent workforce for all.

Policies, standards and strategies are developed by our Health, Safety and Environment team, which are then agreed and committed to by operational leaders.

Added Value

Not only do we work with our partners to drive down costs and explore innovative ways of working, we also deliver positive economic, environmental and social impacts in the places we operate.

Grafton Merchanting GB believe there is enormous social value in supporting and engaging with communities, partners and our workforce that go far beyond contractual requirements.

Our Added Value work achieves a lot, from helping apprentices develop skills, repairing a roof of a local church, to providing Christmas presents to the local Children’s Hospital.

Contrary to other local community funding, our Grafton Community Impact fund is set up during Partnerships with the aim of supporting multiple projects across the community.
