Recycling Lives’ work with BAE Systems has led to another valuable partnership.
MG Barkers, a Liverpool-based company providing workspace solutions and who subcontract for BAE, have given Recycling Lives the opportunity to work with them in office removals across a number of BAE sites as part of their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) agenda.
MG Barkers range of activities also includes design and build contracts, furniture procurement and installation, and moves management services.
Organisations working alongside Recycling Lives can enhance their CSR agenda in a variety of ways and with a depth of involvement to suit them.
Simply working with Recycling Lives in a commercial setting helps to support the Recycling Lives charity, providing opportunities to some of the most vulnerable and disenfranchised members of society.
The benefits of an active CSR agenda are widely acclaimed.
Customers and consumers are increasingly concerned about the impact of businesses they engage with and a reputation as a socially responsible organisation can generate new business and yield competitive advantages, while enhancing a business’s reputation and trust and improving customer loyalty.
Many CSR activities can directly lead to cost savings and increased efficiency, such as cutting energy and heating bills through reduced carbon emissions.
Businesses depend upon the communities they serve and any work to make your local community a better place will undoubtedly benefit your company in the long term.
Recycling Lives Chief Executive, Charles Jackson, said: “We are delighted to be working alongside such an established and progressive company as MG Barkers, and we hope this will be the first of many activities we undertake together.
“Recycling Lives is a company dedicated not only to its own CSR agenda, but also to helping other companies see the benefits of engaging in Corporate Social Responsibility and helping them find ways to do so, generating benefits to themselves and their communities.”
