Supporting Our Society is important to us as we meet the challenges of the modern world we live in to address our corporate, social and environmental responsibilities. We aim to make a positive social impact wherever we operate in the world, and because of the way we are structured – we do not have to reward shareholders – we can donate money to charity and community causes and reinvest in R&D in order to continually develop improved technology that will benefit people and the environment.
We regard profit as just one of the measures of business success, necessary to sustain Scott Bader but also a means by which we can fulfil our social purpose.
In support of our 2036 Vision, our charitable giving and volunteering will focus on our local communities and in particular:
- Education and Legacy – investing in the education, training and development of our colleagues and local people.
- Social and Environmental Impact – responding to the most pressing social and environmental needs, especially to young people and those facing poverty, disability, and disadvantage.
- Foundation and Incubation – leveraging our skills, resources and networks to assist science and socially-driven organisations.
A focus on education, young people and the future ensure we build on our heritage and the hopes of our founder Ernest Bader.
