Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Policy

Cogent Blue is committed to operating in a responsible and sustainable manner. We encourage rewarding, long-term partnerships by understanding the needs of individuals, clients and partners, and conducting our business in a way that meets the highest standards of professionalism and ethics.

Our commitment to CSR is focused on the following key areas:

Team

Cogent Blue adheres to an equal opportunities policy that ensures all associates are treated with respect, regardless of disability, sex, marital status, ethnic origin, age, religion or sexual orientation.

Partners

We regard all suppliers and contractors as our partners, and encourage them to uphold our values of trust, transparency, responsibility and fairness.

Clients

We are committed to achieving high professional standards and aim to deliver the best possible experience for our clients by providing high-quality services and building partnerships based on transparency and fairness.

Business Conduct

We ensure that our business is conducted according to rigorous ethical, professional and legal standards.

When working with small business suppliers we commit to invoice settlement within 7 days of receipt of invoice and, for sub-contractors, within 7 days of receipt of client payment.

Environment

We strive to minimise the environmental impact of our business by actively seeking out and adopting cloud-based technologies and being aware of environmental best practice, including responsible waste management. We also seek to work with local suppliers located within a 10-mile radius of our business base, thus minimising our logistical impact on the environment.

Charity

From 2016 we have chosen to join Hospitality Action as a Corporate Support Member. We are fortunate to be part of a great industry yet have many colleagues who face times of crisis and this great charity is dedicated to supporting those in need in the hospitality sector.
