Responsible business practices

Route 101 is committed to conducting business in an ethical and transparent manner through the promotion and education of honest conduct within our team.

Responsible behaviours are embedded in the Route 101 business model, and ensuring that our services and operations align with responsible behaviours commercially, ethically and socially is imperative.

Commercially, Route 101 is committed to the continuous development of high-quality solutions and services. Ethically, the business is always fair and truthful in its engagement with suppliers, stakeholders and customers.

Our charitable partner: CALM

As a socially conscious organisation, Route 101 takes an active role within the local community and further afield, supporting a programme of charitable activity.

The business is working with our chosen charity partner for the year, CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably) on a programme of fundraising, support and awareness generation.

The Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM), is a charity that is taking a stand against suicide. This means standing against feeling rubbish, standing up to stereotypes, and standing together to show life is always worth living.

As one of CALM’s corporate supporters, Route 101 will work to raise awareness and break down the stigma around mental well-being and suicide. It is extremely important to the business that we have a charity that resonates with our employees, and as a charitable partner directly chosen by our team, CALM’s work does just that.

Inclusive hiring

At Route 101 we are committed to ensuring equality and preventing discrimination in the workplace.

We work hard to create an innovative and collaborative work environment that encourages diverse perspectives and enables our employees to grow professionally and personally.

The business is committed to providing a safe and healthy workplace environment for our team and in creating an open and accountable culture which recognises achievement and applauds innovation. The Leadership Team is consistently exploring ways to support and guide employees, and hear feedback from across the business.

 


Approach to sustainability 

Route 101 provides quality service in a manner that manages, controls and wherever possible reduces our environmental impact and carbon footprint.

As a cloud systems integrator, we promote sustainability through the cloud-based services that we provide, which offer a much smaller hardware footprint and improved communication channels which leads to a reduction in travel.

Some of the key ways we drive environmental sustainability are:

  • Integrate environmental concerns into our decision making and resultant activities.
  • Dispose of electrical items either to the second user market or in accordance with current WEEE recycling directives where reuse is not possible.
  • Minimise travelling with the use of improved collaborative technology and complementary company policy. We also provide secure bike storage to encourage eco-friendly methods of travel.
  • Minimise waste and reuse/recycle as much as possible. We recycle on a weekly basis, with recycling stations in each room and kitchen within the office.
  • Recycle/reuse ink cartridges, using a charitable recycling service which benefits both charitable organisations and the environment.
