At Midlands Care, our commitment goes beyond providing exceptional care to our residents. We recognise the importance of sustainability and are dedicated to making a positive impact on the environment and our local communities. As part of our pledge to Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) strategy, we are dedicated to introducing sustainability initiatives that prioritise the environment and give back to communities. We actively engage in local initiatives and also support charitable causes, pathing waves of positive impact beyond the walls of our care homes.

Understanding ESG – What is ESG?

ESG stands for Environmental, Social, and Governance. It refers to the three central factors in measuring the sustainability and societal impact of an organisation.

  1. Environmental: Covers how a company performs as a steward of nature.
  2. Social: Examines how it manages relationships with employees, suppliers, customers, and the communities where it operates.
  3. Governance: Deals with a company’s leadership, executive pay, audits, internal controls, and shareholder rights.

At Midlands Care, we pledge to integrate these principles into our operations to ensure we are not only providing high-quality care but also contributing to a better world.

Our ESG Framework

ESG Policies: Our foundation begins with establishing the right policies and frameworks. We ensure that our corporate responsibility is clearly outlined and adhered to, reinforcing our commitment to ESG principles.

As part of our commitment, we have a robust action plan in place, ensuring that all parts of ESG are addressed. This includes our Tree Planting Initiative, where we plant a tree with the National Forest for every resident loss across Midlands Care, honouring our residents while contributing to reforestation. Additionally, our action plan includes but isn’t limited to our Paperless Agenda, Increasing Energy Efficiency, and above all, driving Customer Obsession. In total, we have over fifteen ongoing initiatives aimed at not only meeting but exceeding the expectations set for our ESG strategy. If you are interested in learning more about any of these initiatives, please get in touch with our Head Office on 0116 296 7744.

Our Commitment to the Future

These initiatives are just the beginning. At Midlands Care, we are dedicated to continuous improvement and innovation in our sustainability and community engagement efforts. We will regularly update our community on our progress and achievements, remaining transparent and accountable in our journey.

Quotes from Leadership: 

“Our commitment to ESG is a testament to our dedication not just to our customers, but to the world we live in,” says Shiv Raja, Director of Strategy and Business Development. “By integrating sustainable practices and actively engaging with our community, we aim to be industry-leading, setting a benchmark for care homes and organisations alike across the country.”

Resident and Staff Involvement: Our initiatives are a collective effort. Staff and residents are encouraged to participate in sustainability projects, making our care homes a true community where everyone contributes to a greener future.

Beyond the Policy: 

While the points outlined in this policy represent significant commitments and actionable steps towards sustainability, Midlands Care acknowledges that our journey towards environmental stewardship is not confined to these specific initiatives. This policy outlines our foundational commitment to ESG principles, but it serves as a starting point rather than a limit. We recognise the dynamic nature of environmental challenges and the evolving needs of our communities and the globe. Therefore, we remain open to exploring and implementing further innovative strategies, embracing new technologies, and collaborating with stakeholders to advance our sustainability efforts.

We invite you to join us in making a difference. Together, we can create a sustainable future and a thriving community for generations to come!
