SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
In common with our determination to help our customers manage and reduce the environmental and social 'footprints' of their IT resources - as cost effectively and realistically as possible - dataserv provides its own unique CSR policy, made up of a number of key initiatives.

These initiatives all contribute to our customers' assurance that they can cede total responsibility to dataserv for their environmental liabilities, as well as guaranteeing that there are no legislative risks to their business through redundant or unwanted IT resources. Many of these initiatives actually exceed the guideline specifications laid down by the BSI.

These key initiatives include:

  • Managing our own resources and staff to ensure ethical, environmental and behavioral compliance with all local and national legislation, as well as ensuring all our activities are carried out responsibly and have minimal impact on the environment.
  • Managing both upstream and downstream supply chains to ensure ethical compliance and behavior. We carry out audits on all key supply chain vendors and customers to ensure that they follow the correct standards and in turn, their own customers. For instance we audit all refining partners to ensure that equipment that has followed our prescribed recycling teardown process at our own recycling facilities does not turn up in other markets.
  • Ensuring transportation and logistics are run as efficiently as possible to limit pollution thereby reducing energy use.
  • Actively encouraging re-use, rather than breakdown and recycling, where appropriate. Combined with our radical breakdown processes, this means we are able to keep landfill from IT products to an absolute minimum.
  • Ensuring all employees and management are subject to regular review meetings where environmental and legislative issues are discussed and policies set. These reviews cover all our procedures and those of our suppliers that relate to our services.
