EV Cargo Global Forwarding was founded and has operated on the guiding principle of absolute customer focus and being a respected service provider in our industry. As a global business our aim is to expand our network and enhance our offering and as such, we have a responsibility to play our part to protect our planet and recognise our obligation to operate our business as sustainably and ethically as possible.
Our customers can rely upon us not to be a part of any corrupt, unethical, unsafe, insecure or illegal activities and to do all we can to protect the environment.
To ensure we meet these requirements, our policies are derived from the requirements of legal, international standards and relevant accreditations. These include Anti Bribery and Corruption; Security; Safety, Health, Environmental & Quality (SHEQ) and Single use Plastics Policies.
Our Anti Bribery and Corruption policy not only applies to all our colleagues but also partners, associates, subsidiaries and sub-contractors as a mandatory requirement. The EV CARGO GLOBAL FORWARDING Executive Board reviews Anti-Bribery and Corruption matters on a monthly basis, demonstrating the importance placed on our compliance with the policy.
Our SHEQ policy statement encompasses our environmental intent of which our aim is to absolutely and comprehensively reduce our carbon footprint. Having reviewed specifically our UK business activities and services, our significant environmental impacts are associated with the use of fuel, road traffic, energy usage and waste disposal. In order to reduce the negative impacts as much as practicable we commit to the following:
- Continually improving recycling and waste disposal
- Reducing carbon emissions and the consumption of energy and water
- Monitoring our activities and processes to ensure efficient use of resources and minimise waste generation
- Identify areas of business activity which may cause pollution and implement sufficient control measures to prevent pollution
EV CARGO GLOBAL FORWARDING recognises that in the areas in which we operate, pressure can be applied to our colleagues and third parties with whom we engage, by people whose standards do not match our own. To combat this, we operate a Whistle-blower policy, provided by a third party with the resources to deal with calls from a variety of countries and in many languages. This resource will allow us to protect and investigate issues across the globe to make sure our colleagues and third parties are safe and know that compliance with our policies is supported.
All EV CARGO GLOBAL FORWARDING policies have my full support and I would emphasise an absolute requirement if someone wants to work for, or with us. We impose a high standard to ensure high performance & quality in both our service and our colleagues, which is an area we cannot and will not compromise on.
