We have in place an environmental management system and this impacts on our behaviour through using public transport and recycling as much of our waste as possible; including IT and communications equipment. We use cloud based computing and electronic files wherever possible to reduce physical footprints too. Working from home and telecommuting is encouraged to reduce travelling time and carbon intensity.
We aim to make a net positive social impact through supporting young people into employment. Youth unemployment is a major societal issue in Europe and SEC offers paid internships to young people on a regular basis, to provide them with much-needed experience and help them create better outcomes. Where we can we employ recent graduates or those who have struggled to enter employment after a break and we are committed to train them. SEC is a learning organisation and we invest in refreshing and building our people’s skills.
