We are delighted to introduce our Fane Valley Group - Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Steering Committee, including our ‘TOGETHER’ Strategy with our Vision and Mission, as we move forward on our sustainable journey across all sites. The ‘TOGETHER’ strategy will simply be the brand for which all our Sustainable, Ethical and Charitable efforts derive.
Our ‘TOGETHER’ Vision is: Making a positive impact, TOGETHER.
Our ‘TOGETHER’ Mission Statement: “It is our mission that, TOGETHER, we will engage and empower our employees, customers, suppliers and neighbours to create positive, sustainable change within our environment, community and business. We will be an ethical, responsible and charitable employer who will act with care, honesty and integrity to ensure the continued well-being and advancement of our colleagues and our wider farming community.”
CSR Steering Committee members are as follows:
Fane Valley Head Office: Niall McCool (Committee Chairperson), Oonagh Chesney, Geraldine Maguire & Hannah Chapman (H.E.L.P Malawi Representative), Fane Valley Stores: Thomas Barnett, Fane Valley Feeds: Ronan McCanny, White’s: James Mathers, Hilton Meat Products: Mark Beggs & DFP: Suzanne Fulton
Corporate Responsibility is about doing business better, in a more sustainable, responsible way, while supporting our local community, and we are aware of the important difference our company can make, and we endeavour to operate responsibly in all we do.
The 5 key pillars in our ‘TOGETHER’ Strategy, are namely:
- Our Environment
- Our Colleagues
- Our Communities
- Our Agriculture
- Our Customers
Targets across the 5 pillars are being set to help focus our sustainability efforts, they range from onsite recycling, staff engagement and wellbeing, energy reduction, apprenticeship schemes and bursary awards, protecting and enhancing biodiversity and building upon local relationships with schools and the rural community while supporting local charities, clubs, events and organisations.
