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.
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.
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.
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:
At Route 101 we recognise that reducing our carbon emissions is critical for addressing climate change. As a technology business, we have the opportunity to lead by example and demonstrate our commitment to sustainability by becoming carbon-neutral.
Alongside our commitment to sustainability, we have partnered with Carbon Neutral Britain to offset our carbon output by investing in worthwhile projects in Britain and around the world to reduce the amount of CO²e in the earth's atmosphere.
They focus on planting trees as the most sustainable way to absorb CO² and refract the earth's heat whilst also having a positive impact on wildlife, ecology and biodiversity.
Route 101 has been officially approved as a Cloud Software and Cloud Support supplier on the UK Government G-Cloud framework.
This framework assists public sector organisations with procurement, allowing them to find and compare services, reducing the need for a full tender process.
