Corporate and Social Responsibility at P+S

Doing good for people, the environment and our community.

A corporate and social responsibility initiative, also known as a CSR initiative, helps keep companies accountable for conducting their business in an ethical way. It means considering the social, economic and environmental impact of what you do, and considering human rights.

CSR might involve a range of activities. From working in partnership with local communities, to developing ethical relationships with employees, clients and suppliers; from environmental protection and sustainability to socially responsible investment.

At Proctors, it means always doing the best we can. For people, for the environment and for our community.

Our Mission Statement

At Proctors, we’re driven by real purpose. We want to do the best we can for the people inside our business and outside it. And that means we don’t just say: we do.

It might be little things, or grander gestures. Internal business policies, or our outward-looking relations. But by remaining accountable to our purpose, we’ll continue to make the biggest impact.

So, whether it’s composting our leftover lunches, donating time and talent to local causes, educating the next generation or running an eco-efficient building – our pledge is to do good, create good.
