Business Stream commits to "making a positive difference" to stakeholders

Business Stream has launched a new vision, Making a Positive Difference, to “make a positive difference to its customers, its people, the environment and the communities it operates within”.

Business Stream said it is “a responsible company committed to doing the right thing and giving back to society”. Its recent efforts include developing a partnership with Business in the Community to run a primary school-based volunteering programme; working with Career Ready to provide mentoring and work experience placements to senior school students; launching its water efficiency pledge; and introducing initiatives to improve employees’ wellbeing, including offering mental health first aid training to staff.

It has also developed a charity panel – made up of charity:water, the Marine Conservation Society, Macmillan Cancer Support, Dementia Support and the Scottish Association for Mental Health – to support fundraising activities. It held an event to formally launch the vision and showcase the work.

• Business Stream also announced last week it had retained the custom of the Royal Highland Agricultural Society of Scotland. Under a new three-year deal, the retailer will provide water management support, including leak detection and consumption monitoring, as well as account management and supply the flagship Royal Highland Show.
