Corporate Social Responsibility

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is, in a nutshell, Playdale taking responsibility for our effect on environmental and social well-being. It’s all about ‘giving something back’ and promoting positive social and environmental change.

Our work in this area has two main focal points:

Ongoing environmental improvements

Playdale is committed to minimising the negative impact that its business has on the natural environment. In order to do this we has an Environmental Management System which is compliant with ISO14001 and includes consideration of the activities of both our supply chain and our subcontractors, ensuring we use sustainable FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) approved sources of timbers and minimising, as much as possible, the production of waste and use of fuels.

Demonstrating support for our community

Playdale is committed to providing volunteer support to the local community. Playdale supports local causes and initiatives through voluntary efforts of staff. We believe we serve our community better by providing skills and support from our team.
Each year Playdale staff members nominate good causes to support for the following year. These are then put to a company-wide staff vote and the top two choices then become our chosen good causes for the rest of the following year.
