CSR Policy

As a global business, Ocorian takes its role as a corporate citizen seriously. From supporting our local communities to nurturing tomorrow’s talent, we are working to positively impact all those directly and indirectly engaged with our business.

Key principles and scope:

  • Ocorian recognises that its operations inevitably have an impact on wider environmental, economic and social issues. These issues are an integral part of our quality management process and we believe that placing emphasis on them gives the right message to our employees, clients, suppliers and other key stakeholders, and demonstrates our awareness of, and concern for, the wider community.
  • We are committed to continuous improvements in environmental, economic and social sustainability.
  • We will comply with all relevant international laws applicable to environmental legislation, regulations, approved codes of practice and other external requirements applicable to our business.

 We will continuously develop our CSR policy by:

  • Measuring and reporting our performance
  • Identifying opportunities and taking action where practical to meet legal obligations and improve sustainability
  • Identifying adverse impacts and risks, and where possible mitigate these
  • Promoting our CSR policy and gain buy-in from all our employees and other key stakeholders
  • Embedding our CSR policy and practice into all our management systems, standards, processes and procedures.

 This policy applies to all employees of Ocorian.
