At Alfa we believe that our actions should have a positive impact on those we work with and the communities around us. We are committed to making our environmental track record exemplary in our field and have set ambitious targets to help us achieve this.
We support dedicated Corporate Social Responsibility teams in each of the regions we operate in around the world. These teams draw from volunteers across the company and garner enthusiastic engagement from the wider Alfa community in all the activities we organise.
We align with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals to provide focus and consistency to our CSR efforts, with staff at all levels of the company proactively seeking to reflect our “Create a Positive Impact” value.
In 2021, our key focus is on developing a plan to implement carbon off-setting to achieve carbon neutrality.
Our teams and their missions
Alfa's Green Team works to ensure that we continuously improve on our environmental policies and activities, and maintain our commitment to sustainability. All team members commit a number of hours each week to Green Team activity, and seek to promote environmental issues amongst colleagues as much as possible. Alfa is aiming to become carbon-neutral by the end of 2021.
Alfa's volunteering scheme allows all employees three days a year to volunteer, and gives them a great amount of freedom to choose how and where they want to spend this time.
We have offered a variety of volunteering opportunities over the years, working with youth charities, building gardens, picking up litter and working with schools.
Last year we got involved with volunteering with Ministry of Stories, an organisation that aims to build confidence, self-respect and communication skills in local children. We have engaged in several clean-up initiatives around London, and have recently begun a mentorship program with a Brixton youth club.
In 2019, we raised over £17,000 for our charity partner, Alzheimer's Society. Fundraising is not limited to our partners, and we also raised thousands more for other charities, including payroll donations to charities personally selected by participating employees. Alfa supports anyone who has an idea to get their event up and running, and will match any amounts raised.
