CORPORATE RESPONSIBILITY >
At Celsa UK, we understand the effect that our operations can have on our local community. In order to minimise our impacts, we regularly consult and work with our neighbours through implementation of our local community action plan. This is reinforced by our commitment to the Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS), and our certification to the Eco-Reinforcement responsible sourcing standard.
Wildlife Trusts Wales
Recently Celsa UK has become a Wildlife Trusts Wales (WTW) partner. Our Gold membership status demonstrates our ongoing commitment to local and national biodiversity. Our membership supports a diverse range of conservation activities at both a local and regional level. We are also integrating the WTW’s Cardiff Wildlife Garden Survey initiative into our local schools engagement programme.
Local community groups
As part of our local community engagement strategy, we are actively involved in a number of groups and initiatives aimed at improving the local environment and the quality of life for members of our local community.
Celsa UK is an official partner of Cardiff Communities 1st; a Welsh Assembly Government flagship programme to improve the living conditions and prospects for people in the most disadvantaged communities across Wales.
We are also working with LEAF (Local Environmental Action Forum) to co-ordinate the Cardiff Garden Wildlife Survey (with local primary schools) on behalf of the Wildlife Trusts Wales. CELSA attends LEAF meetings and looks to develop partnership projects for the future. LEAF is part of Cardiff Communities 1st and is the local environmental action group.
Celsa works very closely with local education organisations. We have for many years, sponsored a PhD programme and annual awards for Academic Excellence in Civil Engineering with Cardiff University. We are also involved in a programme of initiatives with local schools. These initiatives range from educational competitions and workshops through to the sponsorship of specific activities and projects.
Whitchurch High School - EESW Project 2009
|Since 2009 Celsa has been involved with the Engineering Education Scheme in Wales (EESW) in partnership with the Royal Academy of Engineering. The aim of the scheme is to encourage the best talent in our schools to take up engineering as a career. The mechanism is to organise industrial based engineering projects for teams of talented 6th form students, which they will find both challenging and stimulating. Celsa have run projects in 2009 with Whitchurch High School and 2010 with Ysgol Plasmawr in Fairwater.|
Celsa UK are also working in partnership with the Carbon Trust to identify energy reduction measures which will help us to reduce our carbon footprint.
