Our CSR Journey
Dr. Neville Prior - Chairman
"We have an enviable past and together, a wonderful and sustainable future."
What does Corporate Social Responsibility mean to Cornelius?
"We are clearly on a journey at Cornelius with respect to truly engaging around a total corporate social responsibility reporting and measuring system at our company.
We have 80 years of history, which is the bedrock of our existence, the stage upon which we have played out our culture and values, and demonstrated what we can achieve and I am personally very proud of that history.
From small beginnings we have created a successful and respected business. We are known for innovation, for being an organisation to trust, and for creating strong propositions. We have reached beyond our home shores, interacted with communities, created technology, been entrepreneurial and helped customers in their strategic aims.
There are many stories that could be told, but the important thing is that our past is vibrant, it shines a light on how we can and have succeeded, and it paints the outlines of a great picture to come.
I believe we have many things to celebrate in terms of our social, economic and environmental performance but I would like to think that even after 80 years of successful business, we still have a lot to learn and develop. We have an enviable past together and I believe a wonderful and sustainable future".
At Cornelius, we have a number of policies to ensure that we offer a rich environment for our employees
We support the local community through Trusteeship, Governorship and work experience. We support local charities and the ambitions of our employees involved in local projects. We also support the UK University system via workshops, student sponsorship, guest lecturing and active mentoring.
In our own brand Cornelius+ business we reinvest a proportion of our profits back into our supply locations and communities where we act, in order to support ethical and sustainable sourcing.
In addition, we manage our supply chain to the highest standards of safety and quality to ensure that we minimise our impact on the environment. We are third party verified to the Chemical Industry Responsible Care® Programme and will be actively supporting the "Together for Sustainability" initiative established by a number of large European chemical manufacturers.
Finally we work with our partners in accordance with communicated ethical business standards.
