ISS UK & Ireland 2018 Corporate Responsibility Report highlights top ThinkForward@ISS achievements

cr-report-464
ISS delivers award winning savings in fleet CO2 emissions and pioneers a new volunteering initiative in the prevention of strokes as part of its ThinkForward@ISS strategy
ISS UK & Ireland are delighted to present their Corporate Responsibility Report for 2018.  The report highlights key achievements such as ISS employees delivering blood pressure sessions to support the prevention of strokes, and an award winning approach to reducing the carbon emissions of the ISS vehicle fleet

The report also shines a light on other achievements under the ThinkForward@ISS pillars of: Sustainable service performance; Enhancing customers’ purpose and People empowerment.

Matthew Brabin, CEO ISS UK & Ireland stated, “Our great people continue to be the engine that drives our success as a business. By embracing the ISS value and unlocking the power of the human touch, we have built strong and engaged teams delivering exceptional customer service all over the UK. We were once again recognised as the leading FM brand in 2018 and this stems from the difference that individuals make every day for our clients. It is these same great people who have energised our ThinkForward@ISS agenda over the past year.”

ISS’ internal network of CR Leaders has continued to grow this year and there have been many great examples of individuals coming up with their own ideas to raise funds for the Stroke Association, raise awareness on mental health, support Forces Leavers into employment, reduce plastics and much else besides. For that reason, ISS are profiling some of its CR Leaders in this year’s report and explaining why it is proud of them.

Know Your Blood Pressure

blood-pressure-464

ISS raised over £70,000 for the Stroke Association in the first year of its partnership and also launched their own Know Your Blood Pressure (KYBP) initiative. 

ISS-trained volunteers are provided with blood pressure testing kits and run sessions for teams to understand their blood pressure, increase awareness of how to reduce the risk of stroke and promote positive health and wellbeing. 

This initiative, pioneered by ISS, represents a new form of corporate volunteering for the Stroke Association.  These sessions attracted interest from around the ISS business with the monitoring available to both ISS employees and ISS client organisations.

Juliet Bouverie, CEO, the Stroke Association commented, “I’m thrilled with what ISS has achieved in our first year of partnership – notably raising more than £70,000 so far, and training staff to become Stroke Ambassadors, so they can carry out blood pressure checks and get more people to understand the link and risks of high blood pressure and stroke. The funds raised by ISS staff have helped us to start up new stroke groups – friendly spaces where people affected by stroke can receive the information, support and help they need – in local communities across the UK.”

A lighthouse in reducing Fleet Carbon Emissions

carbon-emissions-464

ISS is delighted to have been awarded the top Gold rating by Masternaut – the ISS telematics provider, for achieving a 5% reduction in year-on-year carbon emissions. Vehicle emissions continue to be the main contributor to the ISS carbon footprint, therefore this development marks a vital achievement. By deploying tracking devices in fleet vans, ISS have been able to monitor and improve aspects of driver behaviour such as excessive idling and harsh acceleration. 

The 2022 reduction target has been attained well ahead of time and ISS will set new challenging targets to continue the momentum. This aims to make a positive difference to climate change, one of greatest challenges facing current and future generations.
