Advanced exists to make a difference

Our Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) strategy recognises the responsibility and opportunity we have to bring about positive change in the world. It is integral to everything we do. We are focused on helping to build a better tomorrow, using the power of technology to create a healthier planet, support inclusive and diverse communities and address inequity.

About ESG

We’re investing in sustainable practices because it’s the right thing to do, but also because we know our staff, customers and partners are looking for leadership and action on the issues that most affect society as a whole.

- Gordon Wilson, CEO at Advanced

SOCIAL AND COMMUNITY EMPOWERMENT

We strive to be a responsible and contributing part of society, seeking to build strong relationships and acting as a good neighbour. We also support and promote employees getting involved in individual fundraising activities. This includes giving them a paid day of Volunteering Leave each year to work with their chosen charity or schemes such as MatchIt! where we match up to £50 (or local equivalent) each employee raises, and Pennies from Heaven where our people can donate pennies from their net pay.

We are committed to building a better tomorrow for our staff, customers and wider community through outstanding environmental sustainability performance. We have a multi-step strategy including reducing our carbon footprint, looking into the environmental impact of our offices, supporting home working, developing a culture of sustainability, forging effective collaborative partnerships, exceeding regulatory requirements and delivering software solutions for our customers which support their environmental goals.

Cultivating a diverse workforce and inclusive culture is a priority for us. Diversity of experience, age, race, ethnicity, background, gender, sexual orientation and religion brings richer perspectives and a powerful frame of reference. Not only is it right to recognise and celebrate differences but creating a culture that is committed to a meritocratic workplace is important to our success. We want everyone to feel welcome and have the opportunity to realise their full potential.
