Social Values - Field & Lawn

Field and Lawn has a proud history of supporting local communities.

We are passionate about harnessing the power of our business to continue to generate benefits for the local economy and to address wider societal issues. We are also very conscious of our environmental responsibilities and are continually working to improve our impact, building on our accreditation as a carbon neutral company. 

Our mission: ‘to be the best that we can be’ has shaped our approach to Social Value, for our people, our communities, and our environment.

Being the best that we can be for our people

  • Accredited Living Wage Employer – we are proud to be one of the few companies in our market who have committed to paying our staff a wage that meets the costs and pressures of everyday life.
  • Comprehensive Staff Training – our staff receive an average of 9 days of training each year, which is significantly above the UK average, enabling them to expand their skills and develop their knowledge.
  • Staff Development – we believe in developing our people and providing opportunities. As a result of this, 60% of our supervisors and managers have been promoted within the company. Some have even been with us since we were founded in 1986.

Being the best that we can be for our communities

  • Supporting Young People to Thrive – Field and Lawn is passionate about supporting vulnerable young people to thrive. We are committed to a 3-year partnership with The Princes Trust to support them in their work to help young people build a better future for themselves and their communities.
  • As an Associate Partner – we will provide an annual donation as well undertake localised fundraising events throughout the year. Our target is to donate £10,000 per year. 
  • Supporting Community Groups – we have also been supporting local community groups for over 30 years, including The Edinburgh Cycle Club and Bristol Children’s Hospital Charity.

Being the best that we can be for our environment

  • We are a Carbon Neutral Certified Company – to reduce our carbon footprint, all emissions produced from UK wide operations are 100% offset through an accredited process that is independently verified.
  • Air Pollution Reduction – we operate a modern fleet, and all our larger vehicles are Euro 6 compliant. We have a plan in place to switch all cars, vans, and smaller lorries to electric and hybrid vehicles by 2030.
  • Safeguarding the Natural Environment – we continue to reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill and have been reducing this by 25% per year since 2015.
  • ISO 14001 accreditation – this international standard specifies our requirements to have an effective environmental management system in place.
