Our corporate and social responsibility commitments
Business integrity and ethics
Our commitment to high ethical standards strengthens our reputation with customers, suppliers and other stakeholders.
Porvair prides itself on its people and their ability to provide innovative solutions for its customers. Porvair is committed to employing talented people and enabling them to reach their full potential. Porvair provides employment in a wide range of disciplines associated with the design and manufacture of filtration and separation equipment.
Health & Safety
Porvair recognises its clear responsibilities for the health and safety of its employees and to the communities in which it operates.
By managing and controlling health and safety, and reducing accidents and injuries, the Group benefits from increased productivity, lower absenteeism, reduced insurance and healthcare premiums and ultimately a safety record which holds the Group in good stead for securing future projects.
The Group’s insurers and insurance brokers carry out a rolling programme of reviews of the Group’s operations as part of their risk assessments and the recommendations of the consultants are generally implemented in full.
Many of the products developed by Porvair are used to the benefit of the environment.
The Group consistently considers methods of improving its environmental profile. Environmental impacts are managed in conformity with local regulatory requirements. The Group’s manufacturing processes have only a limited potential emissions impact. The Group uses solvents in certain of its processes, and has procedures in place for their control. Its Metals Filtration division manages the emissions from its kiln firing operations within agreed regulatory parameters.
Building strong relationships
Porvair is committed to building relationships with its customers, its suppliers and the local communities in which it operates.
