Community Policy

In Critical Power Supplies our business strategy is for sustainable growth through a focus on Critical Power and Standby Power in the UK and internationally. We recognise that to achieve our strategy we must operate in a responsible way towards the communities in which we live and operate. We also recognise the essential role our communities play in helping us to deliver our business strategy. We have developed a community strategy to guide our work with the communities we serve, supporting our corporate responsibility commitment and adding value to our core business strategy. This is underpinned by our Community Policy.
