Corporate social responsibility

Conducting our business in a responsible manner is important to ILG.
To do this we focus our CSR activities in three key areas:

Our people

ILG’s ability to deliver depends on a talented and engaged workforce, keen to go the extra mile to provide first class services. We work hard to ensure our employees are recognised and rewarded for their contribution and share in our success. Training and development opportunities sit at the core of our people management policies and focus particularly on providing apprenticeships and internships for young people. We involve everyone in the management of our health and safety policies and our commitment to providing equality of opportunity.

Our community

We strongly believe that giving back to the community is important and engage with local people through a charity-focused programme of activity. Each year we select a charity from nominations suggested by our employees. Our charity of choice for 2020 is The Lucy Rayner Foundation, which raises awareness of the signs and symptoms of depression and mental health problems in young adults. Throughout the year we are raising funds for this charity, as well as supporting our second charity, Aldingbourne Trust WorkAid, by providing employment opportunities for people on the autistic spectrum or with a learning disability.

Our environment

As a fast-growing fulfilment and delivery business, we have a responsibility to mitigate the environmental impact of our operations. We measure our carbon footprint, establish challenging reduction targets and set out our commitments in ILG’s Environmental Policy. None of our waste is sent to landfill and all our packaging is made from recycled material and 100% recyclable. We are switching to green energy tariffs, making our warehouses and offices as sustainable as possible, and encouraging our staff to make more eco-friendly choices. Read our Green Promise here.
