Community and Corporate Social Responsibility

DSD recognise the importance of contributing and giving back to the communities in which we live and work.

Our communities

we promote good community relations

By its very nature, new construction and road infrastructure has an impact upon the local environment, the end users and the wider community. We take a proactive stance in ensuring that our work causes the minimum of disruption to our neighbours and their communities.

Environment

acknowledging our responsibility to future generations.

We take all reasonable steps to manage our operations in order to minimise our environmental impact and promote good environmental practice. We acknowledge our responsibility to the natural environment and strive to minimise any negative impact from our operations.

Our people

we are committed to our employees

We recognise the need to be able to attract, recruit and retain employees with the potential, skills and experience necessary for the continued growth and development of our business. The commitments to our people are embodied within the following

Health, safety and wellbeing

Is a key priority for our business & we are committed to maintaining & continuously improving standards of occupational health & safety for all our employees, subcontractors & those affected by our activities (including the public).

Equality and diversity

We are committed to providing an inclusive working environment where all employees are treated with courtesy, dignity and respect and where everyone feels valued irrespective of gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, disability or age. We are committed to the principle of equal opportunities in employment and ensuring that no applicant or employee receives less favourable treatment.

Learning and development

We are committed to creating a learning culture and providing opportunities to ensure that our people are equipped with the skills and knowledge to maximise business effectiveness. We will also support our people in realising their potential while contributing to the development of the business and the achievement of its objectives.

Energy and resources

we will improve efficiency

Climate change is one of the key environmental challenges our business faces and we are committed to regularly reviewing our business practices and performance to identify how we can reduce our requirements for energy, transport and water usage. We will also promote good practice in respect of recycling and waste minimisation. Where possible we will use alternative materials and methods to optimise the use of resources in collaboration with our clients and suppliers.

Innovation

we innovate to find balanced sustainable solutions

Innovation is essential for the development of our business and for creating vibrant sustainable solutions in the built environment. We aim to stimulate sustainable solutions that balance economic, environmental and social issues.

We believe that by acting upon these commitments we are creating value for our customers, employees, shareholders and broader society.
