Corporate social responsibility programme

Our approach to corporate social responsibility

At DAS, we are committed to doing the right thing for our customers, employees, community and environment. We constantly strive to develop and improve our CSR programme, and pride ourselves on being a responsible business.

Our people

People are at the heart of DAS, and we work hard to create a great place to work. We prioritise the health and wellbeing of our people, and our WellWise programme is designed to help them lead a healthy lifestyle. We provide free exercise classes, discounted gym memberships and offer a range of wellbeing tips and advice.

Here at DAS, we believe passionately in the value of high quality training and development for our people. In order to truly be First For Justice, we understand that we need to support our people to enable them to perform their best. We therefore provide accessible learning and development opportunities, and promote internal progression.

Our people

Giving back to the community

Community means a lot to us. We believe that all businesses have a responsibility to ‘give back’ to the community that they operate in. We therefore get involved as much as we can! Our employees support a local primary school each week with their reading scheme, and we encourage various teams across the business to take part in community-focused team building activities.

Our active Charity Forum is in place to oversee regular donations to a range of different charities via the DAS Monthly Pot. We also support four main employee-nominated charities each year as part of our Quarterly Charity programme.     

In 2018

our charity donations topped

£26,800

Our commitment to the environment

Doing the right thing for the environment is extremely important to us. DAS has a well-established environmental programme, which has helped to raise awareness of environmental issues and reduce our carbon footprint.

We focus on three key areas – transport, energy and waste – and are proud to be 100% carbon neutral.

All of our people receive annual training on our environmental requirements through one of our mandatory learning modules, and we have an active Sustainability Forum in place to raise awareness, encourage action and ultimately reduce our negative impact upon the environment.

Environmental Policy
