Corporate Social Responsibility
Hazel 4D is committed to operating in a responsible and sustainable manner,
recognising the economic, social and environmental impact of our activities.
Charity and integrity are two of our core business values.
Charity fundraising and volunteering
Hazel 4D donates to many local and national charities every year and we frequently take part in fundraising activities.
Over 70% of our staff members contribute to charities regularly. Read Diane’s fundraising story here.
Here are some of the charities we’ve supported recently:
The Hazel 4D head office has super-efficient lighting and a heat pump exchange unit to minimise energy use. Our processes are paperless.
We have ‘dry mixed recycling’ bins on each floor to recycle our paper, cardboard, plastic, cans and clean, empty food containers.
100% of the waste produced at our head office and distribution centre is diverted away from landfill.
We also help our clients improve their waste management processes.
We recently helped a large telecoms manufacturer improve their inefficient and costly waste management system by installing balers so they can bale their own waste. Their baled waste is then recycled by Recycling Lives, a waste management company that employs ex-offenders and helps homeless people find work.
Hazel 4D reports monthly on the amount of waste recycled and give our client a rebate for the amount their waste is worth. They now recycle around 50 tonnes of plastic and cardboard per month, have an additional revenue stream from recycling and their new waste management process is 89% cheaper than their previous system.
We encourage staff to car share where possible and travel together on business trips.
Our car fleet is fuel efficient and only includes diesel and hybrid electrical vehicles.
Customer satisfaction forms a huge part of our quality management system at Hazel 4D.
We’ve worked with consultancy firm, TXM, to drive continuous improvements to our operations and our in-house 4DIS system focuses on streamlining our transactional processes.
As well as focusing on our own improvement, we also work with our customers to drive continuous improvements to their packaging and business processes.
We’re ISO 9001:2015 certified and comply with all relevant statutory and regulatory requirements.
Health and Safety
We comply with the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and all other relevant health and safety legislation.
We update our health and safety policy annually and share it within the business and regularly provide full team training on health and safety and emergency procedures.
We actively seek and align ourselves with a conscientious supply chain.
We carry out due diligence checks throughout our supply chain to make sure they’re manufacturing and sourcing responsibly.
