Our Commitment

At R G Carter we understand that Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) isn’t just about doing the right thing.

It is about behaving responsibly and encouraging our suppliers to do the same. We seek to gain respect from our clients, suppliers and the local community by building relationships and promoting our ethos of continuous development.

We want to protect communities of the future by using sustainable methods and materials where we can.

Many of our key clients are also working towards their own sustainable achievements and we believe that sharing values and methods can only enhance and improve the way we work.

Looking after the world we live in is a collective responsibility and we must work together within the business, within communities, and with clients to make sure we always strive to do so.

We are proud to be involved with many clients who are committed to CSR, such as the John Lewis Partnership, Tesco Stores, Aldi UK GmbH and Marshalls who are well known for their commitment to CSR which feeds through into customer services, sales and profits.

Throughout these pages we will explain why CSR is so important to us.
