LIMA’s commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility
LIMA’s culture is built around people: our staff, our customers and suppliers, and our community
We understand as a business our operations can have an impact on society, and we firmly believe this should be a positive one. Our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) policy is diverse, ranging from environmental initiatives to providing local employment opportunities and supporting local charities wherever possible.
“It is fundamentally important for LIMA as a company to take into account how our business activities impact the environment, the community and our employees.”
Lisa Thornton, LIMA Director
We focus our work in three key areas
LIMA is certified to ISO 14001 Environmental up to 15th September 2018. Protection of the environment in which we live and operate is part of LIMA's values and principles and we consider it to be sound business practice.
