PEOPLE PLANET PURPOSE
Our People and Planet pillars define how as a business we want to position ourselves on issues such as diversity and inclusion, sustainability, and community.
As a growing organisation our vision for the future is to be both an employer of choice and partner of choice to our customers and suppliers. We understand that by having a strong purpose in People and Planet helps to reinforce and grow our other strategic pillars of Customer and Performance.

By working with purpose, we hope to create the desire for our associates, our customers, and suppliers to choose to work with us daily, building a sustainable business and providing security for our families and our community.
As a company our success is closely tied to associate engagement, trust, growth and development and teamwork and to help us facilitate this we participate in different schemes and progammes. These include being affiliated gold members of the Mental Health Charter, charitable payroll giving and organising volunteering days.

Routeco continue to strive to support community causes with both time and funding per annum.
Routeco's purpose statement and metrics enable us to communicate our purpose, the outcomes, and the value this brings to our associates, customers, suppliers, and our community.
Our Purpose maturity assessment is new for 2022 and will be tracked annually and shared with our associates and here on our website to provide open and transparent updates on our non-financial measures.
Our metrics are reviewed quarterly at the board meeting where the data highlights opportunities to accelerate positive impact and mitigate negative impact and guides future decisions around where to allocate and invest in resources.
Routeco are fully committed to placing the planet at the core of our business activities and strive daily to reduce our carbon emissions to support the Sonepar Group’s aim to become carbon neutral by 2040.
We recognise the importance of protecting the environment and actively working towards putting environmental sensitivity at the forefront of our business decisions and operations.
If you want to join our team where we celebrate diversity, look for new ways to work sustainability, in a culture that engages with associates so they can adapt, dare, and learn,
Diversity & Inclusion
Community
We offer Charitable Giving via Payroll Giving. Payroll Giving Quality Mark awards are graded based on % of our associates giving from our total headcount. We are presented with our award status annually.
Our volunteering policy enables our associates to use a day a year to volunteer for a cause that is close to their heart. In addition, we organise corporate volunteer events during the year.
We support community investments and educational programmes, and our volunteering and philanthropy is driven through the People Operations team.
Routeco’s D&I policy is reviewed annually to ensure that we benchmark against best practise and advisory resources from Inclusive Employers
To help foster an inclusive workplace, we provide ongoing diversity and inclusion training to all employees, not just our management teams.
We understand that diversity and inclusion are not a one-time effort or training session, it is a commitment to continual learning, improvement, and action to do our part in ensuring that diversity and inclusion is an everyday reality.
Our open voices survey is completed every two years where we gain internal feedback from our associates on their thoughts and feelings on D&I through several defined questions.
We aspire to have a diverse and inclusive workforce because we understand that this moral imperative drives better outcomes for both our associates and our business.
We also believe that a more inclusive workplace, where people of diverse backgrounds, cultures and perspectives work together and support each other will enrich and create a better environment for everyone.
Routeco are committed to embedding diversity and inclusion across the whole organisation. We recognise and celebrate the value that a diverse workforce brings, and we are fully committed to the elimination of any unlawful and unfair discrimination.
Routeco have membership with ‘Inclusive Employers’. This prioritises our understanding the unique inclusion and diversity challenges within our organisation providing tailored, action-focused support from established leaders in the field.
We aim to place inclusion
at the heart of all we do.
To promote a culture of responsibility and giving across our company, we encourage our associates to participate in charity events where our we offer corporate contributions to individual and group fundraising activities.
We donate annually to the community foundation with our level of donation enabling a named corporate fund. This is reviewed annually with 2021 -22 being dedicated to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion focussing specifically on ethnic minority communities around social mobility among young people and development of professional careers.
