Corporate Social Responsibility

Workspace Commercial Furniture has a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) approach.  Our approach is voluntary and is discussed and agreed at senior management level.

When companies assume responsibility, it’s not just employees and customers that benefit – the whole of society is involved.

We are delighted to announce that Workspace has been awarded the Silver rating for Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) for 2020. We show that our words are not just empty promises and that we turn our words into action and is confirmed by achieving a higher overall score than last year! We have increased our CSR performance from 56 to 62. This exciting result places Workspace among the top 25% performers evaluated by EcoVadis!

At Workspace, we use EcoVadis as one of the leading external references for continual improvement and we are determined to progress further in the future.
