Rigorous procedures and audit processes
We consider the environmental implications of working conditions, health and safety, and ethical procurement. We have also developed explicit and detailed codes of conduct, procedures and audit processes designed to effectively manage and monitor a wide range of issues related to these concerns, and ensure our policies are embedded in everything we do.
Copies of our policies are available on request.

EcoVadis Sustainability Rating
In November 2020, Telent were awarded an EcoVadis Silver Medal in recognition of our sustainability achievements to date. Our score was in the 92nd percentile, meaning it was higher than 92% of other companies that have completed it, and among the top-scoring assessed. Telent will explore continuous improvement recommendations which came out of our recent EcoVadis assessment and set a plan to achieve a Gold rating in future.
We strive to play a constructive role in the local communities wherever we have an office base. For example by participating in raising awareness of engineering or health & safety issues in local schools or sponsoring after-school sports clubs.
Our Corporate Charity Partnership with Alzheimer’s Society
Telent and its employees have chosen to partner with Alzheimer’s Society from January 2019 for three years.
During this period employees, with support from their families and friends, will be actively involved in fund raising.
In 2019 we held lots of fund raising events including cake sales, bike rides in Chorley and Warwick on 19th July, a golf day on 5th September, raffles and other challenges which all went towards our total of £78,000 raised!
During 2020 our plans have had to change slightly due to COVID-19 but that hasn't stopped us organising fundraising events! We launched the Telent4Alzhiemer's challenge in August.
