Corporate Social Responsibility, Environment & Ethics
Domino endeavours to uphold best practice in the workplace by regularly reviewing health and safety, maintaining high employment standards and engaging our diverse workforce.
Domino's policy is to comply with all competition and trade regulation laws, promote ethical behaviour throughout our value chain and treat all suppliers and subcontractors fairly and honestly under clear terms of engagement.
Domino currently meets the Silver standard of EcoVadis’ 21 Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) indicators for reducing risk, driving innovation and fostering transparency and trust with our trading partners. The EcoVadis pillars by which Domino standards are measured are Sustainable Procurement, Labour and Human Rights, Ethics and Environment. Domino’s scores are above average in each category.
Similarly, as a Grade B member of Sedex’s (Supplier Ethical Data Exchange) Manufacture of Machinery and Equipment category, Domino drives supply chain improvements from several global sites. Domino’s processes are subject to the organisation’s regular independent ethical audits.
Domino not only values its local neighbours, but communities internationally too.
In 2017, Domino established a worldwide employee-participation programme to support the endeavours of SOS Children's Villages International. Its beneficiary was the Bhimtal Family Strengthening Programme in India – providing nutritional, educational and health support as well as vocational training, career counselling sessions and job placement support.
In the UK, Domino supports educational programmes in STEM subjects to school age pupils.
The 2017 installation of a Combined Heat and Power Unit at Domino’s Cambridge HQ is reducing the company’s CO2 footprint by over 22.8 tonnes annually. Similarly, sustainable lighting system will cut annual energy usage and CO2 emissions by 42,000kg.:
Domino's commitment to excellence is reflected by the ISO 9000 series of quality assurance accredited manufacturing plants in the UK, US and China as well as subsidiaries Spain, France and the Netherlands. Wiedenbach Apparatebau, a German Domino Group Company has also achieved ISO9001.
In addition to this, Domino's printer plant in China and fluid factories in the UK, China and the US have ISO14001 accreditation for environmental management and improvement. The accreditations were awarded as a result of continued achievements to reduce the plants’ electricity consumption without reducing production, and for cutting plant waste through recycling.
