Colts core values, established over 50 years ago, are People, Innovation, Sustainability and Ethical Business Practices. These values persist and we should articulate them in a short and concise manner, explaining what we mean by them:
- People: we encourage a collaborative working environment and foster innovative thinking. We put the comfort, health and safety of our employees and everyone affected by our activities first and we invest in nurturing our teams through training and mentoring.
- Innovation: we invest in developing new technologies and in transferring technical knowledge and know-how across our organisation to offer our customers around the world the most effective solutions for their projects. We invest in design and test facilities that enable us to have confidence in the performance of our products and to reduce their time to market.
- Sustainability: we believe we have a role to play in reducing the impact that the built environment has on the natural environment. We also strive to reduce our own CO2 footprint and take every opportunity to minimise the environmental impact of our activities, investing in a sustainable future.
- Ethical Business Practices: we pride ourselves on the ethical business practices we apply in everything they do.
