Corporate Social Responsibility

As the UK’s market-leading structural steel company, we know that any decisions we make can have a significant effect on the environment and people’s lives and communities.

We take this responsibility very seriously and are committed to good practice in all our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities. We work beyond compliance to consider how we can have a positive impact on communities, minimise risk in our operations and ensure the best health and safety performance standards.

Our Board takes regular account of the significance of social, environmental, ethical and health and safety matters to the Severfield business. A comprehensive risk management and internal control process is in place, including a CSR committee.

With our focus on people, we are passionate about providing excellent training and skills development opportunities that benefit individual members of staff and preserve our high working standards. We also support employment in local areas by taking on apprentices across Severfield each year, hiring our people locally wherever possible and providing opportunities for graduates across a number of functions including business support, quantity surveying, design engineering, site management and project management.

We have participated in the UK Contractors Group (UKCG) Open Doors Weekend – opening our doors to school children, showing them what a career in construction really looks like.
