Newton's core values of exceptional performance, professionalism with respect and loving our people are of the utmost importance to us. They are a code we live by, guiding the way we work and the way we conduct relationships with clients, partners, external audiences and our colleagues.
Everybody at Newton shares the common goal of doing the best work at all times with the utmost integrity. We work with our clients collaboratively, side-by-side, uncovering the hard to get at opportunities and driving results. We are accountable, which is the essence of the trust our clients have in us and our work. Promising guaranteed sustainable results or no fee payable, we fulfil commitments and demonstrate our absolute belief in effecting real improvement.
At Newton, we're passionate about fundraising and volunteering, and we have a dedicated Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) committee to plan our annual programme and keep us on track. Some of our recent initiatives include the Race for Life, the Bacchus Half Marathon and the Great Gorilla run. We also work regularly with Engineers Without Borders, supporting, training and visiting EWB volunteers in deprived areas around the world as they work to remove barriers to development.
We take an active, responsible approach to reducing the impact of business operations on the environment – both within our own organisation and those we work with. The nature of many of our operational efficiency projects means we also help reduce energy consumption, emissions and waste. We also strive for excellence in every aspect of running our own business. We're committed to minimising any negative effects our operations may have on the environment and recently received our ISO: 14001 Environmental accreditation.
