Corporate Social Responsibility
At ProSolve, we understand that a business’s measure of success goes beyond the bottom line. Over the past 40 years, we have grown our business to enable us to give back to society and act for the greater good, not just a greater profit.
We believe in the transformative power of our business, and we continue to work on delivering on the commitments we make. Whether that includes improving the sustainability of our operations, closely managing supply chains to eliminate reliance on unethical labour practices, or simply investing in methods to ensure we’re a responsible and inclusive employer where every member of our team feels valued and seen. All our Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives are underpinned by integrity, accountability, and positive working partnerships.
How Do We Do This?
CSR is no longer simply an ‘add-on’ to business, that is why we integrate social, environmental, ethical, consumer and human rights concerns into our business strategy and operations. In addition to this, we abide by the law.
Via continuous self-regulation of our actions and policies, we have been able to categorise our CSR efforts into three key areas:
At ProSolve, we are taking ownership of our impact on the environment. That’s why we continue to promote environmentally friendly practices which are aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions, pollution, waste, and natural resource depletion.
These practices include:
- Company wide recycling programme - Zero landfill
- Solar panelled HQ
- Regular energy consumption monitoring
- Material Handling Equipment - 90% Electric
- Growing hybrid company car fleet
- Sustainability review of consumables packaging
We aren’t perfect, we are human… that’s why we are committed to continuing to improve and grow the above areas to help contribute to a more sustainable world.
Our staff are the beating heart of what we do. It’s why we refer to our employees as “the ProSolve family”. The team is our biggest asset and ProSolve is proud to employ some of the best and brightest talent in the industry, don’t believe us?
“It is clear that you have a company with strong personable, family values when it comes to colleagues and customers and clearly the can-do attitude of your team at all levels of the business shines through.”

We strive to cultivate a close-knit family atmosphere through training sessions, group lunches and an open, positive mindset that feeds down from our leadership team. As a business that operates a zero-tolerance bulling policy, ethics and respect form the foundation of who ProSolve is.
Some examples of what drives us to be an ethically responsible business includes:
- Policies in place are applied to all employees fairly
- Promote a climate of fairness and equality via bonus schemes, holiday entitlement and sick pay
- Regular 1-2-1’s and training programmes
- Points of support / contact for mental health concerns
- Employees receive competitive pay and comprehensive benefits
Philanthropic ResponsibilityAt ProSolve, we strive to live by our values, this includes ensuring that we are good citizens in the communities in which we live and work. How do we do this? By giving something back…
