This is Pro2col’s company ethos. As a small company, we are striving to make a big difference through positive decision-making in every aspect of the business. This involves working with our customers, vendors and partners to do good for the environment, the local community, charities and for our employees.
We've signed up to Support the Goals!
In 2015, world leaders agreed to 17 global goals - also known as the Sustainable Development Goals or SDGs - as part of a plan to build a greener, fairer, better world by 2030.
Pro2col has agreed to join the movement and focus our support on four of the goals as a business and as a team.
Life on Land
Our company culture is centred around doing the right thing. This fosters a team of healthy, happy staff who enjoy coming into work and feel they are a part of something. Three core attributes make a Pro2col employee…
Honesty: We’re honest and ethical with each other, our customers and our partners. This means doing the right thing instead of prioritising commercial gain.
Excellence: Each person within the organisation strives for excellence in every aspect of their work. Adopting a positive outlook and embracing change is at the heart of the Pro2col workplace culture.
Teamwork: ‘We’ is much more important than ‘I’ at Pro2col. A fun and collaborative workplace helps us to achieve our goals and build long-term relationships with customers, vendors and partners.
Responsible Consumption and Production
We are committed to protecting and preserving the environment. Pro2col employees have all taken steps to adopt green practices and genuinely care about the environment.
MD James Lewis is passionate about the environment and doing our bit to combat climate change – and because of that it’s a fundamental principle that runs throughout the business.
On our 18th birthday this year. we partnered with treeapp to organise a tree to be planted for every customer, partner, and staff member Pro2col has had over the years, which equates to 1000 trees! But we aren't stopping there.
Pro2col’s environmental policy focuses on 3 key areas:
We have made environmentally-minded decisions within our office, including switching to a green energy provider, utilising eco-friendly cleaning and office supplies and supporting local suppliers and independent businesses.
We are actively fighting today’s throwaway culture, recognising that recycling is good, reusing is better, but not buying at all is better still.
Inspiring the Community
Life below water
We are committed to playing a positive role in our local community and building relationships that last.
Pro2col has organized numerous beach cleans to preserve the natural beauty of Dorset’s spectacular coastline, the most recent collecting 2820 pieces of litter. We use local, independent suppliers and support local schools wherever possible.
Below includes some beach cleans organized by Pro2col.
Charitable giving is a key part of life at Pro2col, as well as being fully carbon neutral. We believe that small actions count. Many food banks across the UK were expecting an increase in demand so Pro2col decided to chip in and help those in need.
Throughout October 2019, the Pro2col team and neighbouring businesses collected supplies for the food banks St Joseph’s Church in Christchurch and Immanuel Church in Southbourne.
