Social Responsibility

At Packetts we are committed to being a responsible business, both in how we work but also in terms of how we contribute to the wider community and the world around us, incorporating ethical initiatives into the core of our business structure.

Values such as contributing to the community and economy, educating future generations and making best efforts to preserve the environment are integral to local business practices.

We do this through a range of local enterprises and charity work by offering our time, expertise and resources to other local and community organisations.  This enables us to manage our contribution to our community and allows us to monitor that we have made a real and measurable impact to both the local community and our staff.
