Reed Business Information works with clients across the globe every day providing them with data services, marketing solutions and lead generation services. We perform to the highest commercial and ethical standards as global leaders in our industries, while demonstrating a strong commitment to sustainable business practices. We invest in our communities and provide a positive, safe workplace that inspires our employees. Our customers know they can trust us.
We are committed to meeting environmental standards. Our global employee-led Green Teams work hard to reduce our carbon footprint with suppliers, customers and employees, through dramatically reducing waste to landfill, significantly cutting paper use, complying with environmental building standards and encouraging programmes such as cycling to work and car sharing. In the past year our team in Houston introduced a recycling programme for the first time and all our offices in the UK have a target to meet environmental standards set by the Government each year.
Reed Business Information is committed to investing in our communities. Each office supports local charities from The Royal Marsden in the South East UK to Streetlytes and Great Ormond St Hospital in Central London. We work with Good News Partners in Skokie and First Book DC in Washington as well as The DePelchin Children’s Centre in Houston. In Singapore our team provides funding for the Children’s Surgical Centre in Cambodia.
We use the power of our brands to support charities and communities. Flightglobal works with Médecins Sans Frontières through free subscriptions to its ACAS database and Salon International gives free stand space to charities such as the Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research Alternative Hair Show. Estates Gazette supports LandAid, helping provide young and disadvantaged in the UK access the buildings, skills and opportunities they need to achieve their potential, while Farmers Weekly support Send a Cow, a farming project in Africa.
Our commitment, through the Reed Elsevier Cares programme, to working with education for disadvantaged young people sees our brands support scholarship programmes and organisations across the globe. For example, our BankersAccuity team in Skokie, Illinois provides free advertising to professional networking organisation, Women in Public Finance while our ICIS US team supports the Southwest Chemical Association College scholarships.
We support our staff in their own charitable activities, by giving them two days off each year to work with a charity of their choice. Our in-house charity teams organise fund-raising activities locally, and also support our staff’s own fundraising efforts by contributing to sponsorship.
Reed Business Information is committed to an ongoing programme of improving our environmental impact, working with our communities and supporting charitable works.
