Corporate Social Responsibility
Hazel 4D is committed to operating in a responsible and sustainable way, recognising the economic, social and environmental impact of our activities.
Charity and integrity are two of our core business values.
Always giving more
Delivering on every promise every time
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 and even actively raise funds for charities regularly. Read Diane’s fundraising story here.
Here are some of the charities we’ve supported recently:
We’re committed to reducing our impact on the environment actively by providing packaging solutions that put a lower ecological burden on the planet. Not only do we offer some great products, like the Surf all-paper mailing envelopes and eco-friendly void-fill systems, but we’ll always be inventive and smart about finding ways of working that minimise waste, cost and harm, too. Our Intelligent Load Stability system and our packaging consultations are designed to balance performance with reduced packaging and waste.
The Hazel 4D head office features super-efficient lighting and a heat pump exchange unit to minimise energy usage.
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 customers 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 could bale their own waste. Their baled waste is 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 gives them a rebate for the amount their waste is worth. Our customer now recycles around 50 tonnes of plastic and cardboard per month, has an additional revenue stream from recycling and their new waste management system is 89% cheaper than 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 TXM consultancy to drive continuous improvement in 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. We regularly provide full team training on health and safety and emergency procedures.
We actively seek and align ourselves with conscientious supply chain partners.
We carry out due diligence checks throughout our supply chain to make sure our partners are manufacturing and sourcing responsibly.
