ESG at Toolbox Marketing

Environmental

Environmental considers how we use energy and manage the environmental impact on the planet, not only for our business but the impact on our clients businesses. 

Factors considered are energy efficiency, climate change, carbon emissions, biodiversity, air and water quality, and waste management and responsible procurement.

Social

Social considers how we foster our people and culture, and how that has ripple effects on the broader community and our clients. 

Factors considered are inclusivity, gender and diversity, employee engagement, customer satisfaction, data protection, privacy, community relations, human rights and labour standards.

As well as showing support, helping raise awareness, collecting donations and more.

Governance

Governance considers our internal system of controls, practices, and procedures and how an organisation stays ahead of violations.

Factors considered are the company’s leadership, executive compensation, shareholder rights, bribery and corruption, lobbying, and whistleblower programs.

We have policies for all major governance factors.
