Our ESG Impact

"Improving our impact is just as important as supporting our clients to improve theirs. Only by setting targets, implementing measures, and monitoring our failures and successes, we will be able to achieve the ultimate goal of protecting people and the planet."

Planet

At Kindred we are committed to reaching Net Zero by 20230. We are a small service based consultancy that is 100% remote, and our biggest area of emissions sit in our Scope 3 activities.

We have in place an Environmental Policy and Management System that records our energy consumption and waste, and we calculate our carbon footprint using Normative (through the SME Climate Hub).

We use 100% renewable electricity and have recently joined Ecologi to offset our carbon footprint through community projects, as well as funding wildflower meadows and wetlands within the UK.

this year we aim to work more closely with our suppliers to implement a sustainable procurement roadmap and assessment process.

People

Before founding Kindred CSR, our Director Ali spent most of her career working for Groundwork - an Environmental and Community based Charity in Northamptonshire.

From her experience and passion for people we want to provide services that approachable and professional, as well as support our local communities to be resilient and valued.

We follow a code of conduct, and have a "zero tolerance" for any bullying or harassment, modern slavery or child labour. 

This year we aim to improve our customer feedback process, and continue to volunteer and donate to causes close to our heart.

Governance

As an ESG consultancy company we need to demonstrate the highest levels of integrity and transparency.

As such, we do not accept any form of bribery or corruption, fraud or money laundering or anti-competitive behaviour.

This year we aim to implement a more robust Information and Cyber Security Management System to ensure we protect our client's confidential data.

Suppliers

At Kindred we have a range of different suppliers from global software providers to local SMEs.

These suppliers support our business to be successful, but we have a duty to ensure that our success isn't at the detriment to other people's health, safety, wellbeing and prosperity.

Therefore, we are committed to creating a balanced supply chain that:

a) protects human rights

b) is local or diverse

c) is environmentally friendly

As we work on our Sustainable Procurement roadmap, we expect our Suppliers to sign our Code of Conduct, and provide further information on their own ethical or environmental practices.
