Corporate Social Responsibility

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) as been at the heart of our business since the inception of Genuine Solutions some 15 years ago and despite the fact we are only an SME and not a corporate, we took the lead and played our part.

At Genuine Solutions we believe that our corporate responsibility is much bigger than just a few acronyms and a brochure.

We’re committed to be the driving force for positive change within our industry. By promoting sustainability through our own business operations and supporting our clients to fulfil their own sustainability goals.

We are dedicated in creating a working environment for our people to thrive, to deliver a healthy performance that we are proud of, support our local communities ensuring that they too benefit from our successes, and ensure we do everything in our power to protect our planet – not only for humanity now, but for the future generations ahead.

Setting the standard

As industry trend setters, we recognise that to run an effective and efficient organisation, our strategy must be built upon three fundamental pillars, and join many other progressive thinking businesses, who have also signed up to the ESG principles.

We choose to adopt the framework of internationally recognised and respected organisations to enhance our performance within each of these areas:

Supporting society

CSR remains an important part of our strategy which is why we place such a large emphasis on working with our community and the 3rd sector to play our part in improving the quality of life for everyone.

It is all too easy to take the lives we lead for granted. Yes, sometimes life can be overwhelming and the busy lives we entail can lead us to complain about the challenges we face as individuals. But in reality, if you actually take a moment to step back and take a look at the world around us, you will realise that there are those facing far more challenging lives than the ones we find ourselves living.

It is only when you take time to reflect on this, that you find yourself wanting to play your part in making a real difference to other peoples lives through the good of your own – we are all custodians of our future, so we rise to the challenge of making a difference and supporting those around us who are less fortunate.

Genuine Solutions have worked closely with several partners to recover + re-love unwanted mobile devices to raise money for charitable organisations, and also donate devices to those less fortunate, who are in need of reconnecting to the online world.

Below are some examples of successful partnerships and insights into some of the exciting projects we’ve delivered that have created great impact and positive outcomes to the community.

Genuine Solutions were able to raise an impressive £4,000 for the Mayor’s Charitable Trust through the recovery and re-love of unwanted mobile devices.
reconnected
Genuine Solutions + Three ‘Reconnected’ scheme helps some of the UK’s most disadvantaged people get connected to the digital world with free mobile devices.
