Tangent International CSR

You are here:

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)

We are an international business operating in the global community – we take our responsibility to be a good corporate Citizen seriously. We try to direct our CSR programme to the areas where we might have a real impact. We want our CSR programme to be a dynamic one that develops with the company; we want it to become part of what makes us who we are, part of our DNA if you like.

We have defined four key areas on which to focus and have then added a fifth which measures our performance in those four key areas.

  • Leadership & Influence
  • Our People
  • Our Communities
  • The Environment
  • Measurement



Christmas Charity Update

In the run up to Christmas charity events run by a number Tangent staff in Billericay raised over £430 for Little Havens. One of the events was the 'inevitable' Christmas Jumper Day' when staff were able to dust down their seasonal knitwear (and other seasonal costumes) to brighten up the office.


Beard Shaving for Charity

After weeks of prevaricating Chris from the Tangent back-office finally went through with his promise to lose his beard if his colleagues donated to charity. So earlier in January he sat down and allowed some of his colleagues 'assist' him in the defoliation process raising over £70 for charity. Before and 'during' photographs are as below. Well done Chris - all for a good cause! Hope it wasn't too painful!


United Nations Global Compact (UNGC)

CSR/Sustainability - Tangent has a strong and positive story to tell about its CSR initiatives but we were delighted to receive the external measure of our Policies, Procedures & Activities through the Silver award we received from Ecovadis towards the end of 2015. Much of what we have built up around CSR follows the tenets (see below) of the UNGC but we had not formally signed up to join the UNGC movement.- this we have now done and are pleased to include the Commitment Letter from Simon Dear, our CEO stating our commitment.


Environmental stewardship

We take environmental stewardship seriously and were pleased to be able to continue our contract for a further year for office electricity generated from biomass when we renewed our supply contract in the summer. SEE CERTIFICATE

Huawei Regional Award

Friday 25th November. Tangent was delighted to have been handed one of only 5 Golden Awards at the Southern Africa Region Huawei Supplier event in mid November. Tangent was the only international resource supplier invited and these 5 Golden awards are selected from a supplier base that probably runs into the thousands of companies across 25 Countries, so it was a significant achievement and one we are very proud of.
