Sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Policy
At Paradise Computing, we are committed to operating our business in a socially and environmentally responsible manner. We recognise that our actions have an impact on the planet, our employees, customers, and the communities in which we operate. As a UK-based company providing IT solutions, we strive to promote sustainability and corporate responsibility throughout our operations.
This policy outlines our commitment and the principles we adhere to:
1. Environmental Responsibility
- Energy Efficiency: We strive to minimise our energy consumption by utilising energy-efficient equipment, implementing power management practices, and promoting energy conservation awareness among our employees. We use an energy provider that is committed to ensuring a zero-carbon, lower-cost energy future. 100% of the energy we used came from renewable sources.
- Waste Management: We minimise waste generation, promote recycling initiatives, and strive to responsibly dispose of any waste produced in compliance with local regulations.
- Resource Conservation: We make efforts to reduce our consumption of natural resources, such as water and paper, by implementing efficient practices and encouraging digitalisation and paperless workflows wherever feasible.
- Carbon Footprint: We aim to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions by monitoring and optimising our transportation practices, promoting remote work and virtual meetings, and considering carbon offset initiatives.
2. Social Responsibility
- Employee Well-being: We are committed to providing a safe and inclusive work environment for all our employees. We will promote diversity, equity, and inclusion, and strive to offer fair wages, benefits, and opportunities for professional growth.
- Health and Safety: We prioritise the health and safety of our employees, customers, and partners by implementing appropriate measures, conducting regular risk assessments, and providing necessary training.
- Ethical Business Conduct: We conduct our business with integrity, honesty, and transparency. We comply with all applicable laws and regulations and uphold high ethical standards in all our interactions.
- Community Engagement: We actively support and contribute to the communities in which we operate. This includes using local suppliers where possible, participating in local initiatives, supporting local charities, and encouraging employee volunteering efforts.
3. Customer Engagement
- Product Sustainability: We will consider sustainability aspects when selecting software products and cloud services for resale, prioritising those with a smaller environmental impact and promoting their use to customers. You can find out more about our partner policies here: Sage | Microsoft

- Responsible Marketing: We will engage in marketing practices that are honest, transparent, and respect customer privacy. We will avoid greenwashing and ensure that our marketing materials accurately represent our sustainability commitments.
4. Continuous Improvement
- Monitoring and Measurement: We will establish mechanisms to monitor and measure our progress towards our sustainability goals. Regular assessments and audits will help identify areas for improvement.
- Stakeholder Engagement: We will actively engage with our employees, customers, suppliers, and other stakeholders to gather feedback, share information, and collaborate on sustainability initiatives.
- Innovation and Research: We will stay informed about the latest sustainability practices, technologies, and regulations in our industry and explore opportunities for innovation and research to further enhance our sustainability performance.
This Sustainability and Corporate Responsibility Policy will be communicated to all employees, suppliers, and stakeholders. We are committed to its implementation, continuous improvement, and regularly reviewing its effectiveness to ensure alignment with evolving best practices and societal expectations.
