Pandrol are committed to contributing to initiatives that foster the well-being and development of the communities in which we operate globally. We do this through the Pandrol Cares initiative.
Pandrol Cares aims to inspire employees to continue to get involved in and propose new community actions which foster collaboration and team work internally and have a positive impact, externally.
Our commitment aligns with and supports the aims of the Group Delachaux WECommunity program, in that it helps build our relationships with our communities by focusing on three themes. These three themes are:
Providing quality education for all is fundamental to creating a peaceful and prosperous world. Education gives people the knowledge and skills they need to stay healthy, get jobs and foster tolerance.
Reducing inequalities and ensuring no one is left behind are integral to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. Inequality within and among countries is a persistent cause for concern.
Taking urgent action to combat climate change and its devastating impacts is therefore an imperative to save lives and livelihood, and key to making the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its 17 Goals – the blueprint for a better future – a reality.
Our team in Addlestone, UK, has donated unused kitchen equipment and crockery to local charity, Transform Housing & Support, which helps homeless people to reach their goals and live independent and fulfilling lives. The charity supports more than 1,500 people each year in the south of England.
Pandrol Sweden recently hosted Sweden’s best and brightest young engineers in Delsbo, Hälsingland, for the annual Delsbo Electric competition. Pandrol is a longstanding supporter of Delsbo Electric’s Race for the Future competition. Our team joined the students
on their journey to create the world’s most energy efficient railway vehicle.
Recognise, value and promote the many initiatives that we already contribute to in our communities.
Encourage and support our employees to suggest and develop new community actions.
Support our employees to spend time helping, supporting and participating in activities that create a positive impact in the communities around our Pandrol sites.
Create individual and collective actions where our employees can build lasting and positive relationships in our communities.
Continue to develop and further foster appropriate community actions with support from the Delachaux WECommunity Program and associated funding.
Build upon the Pandrol Cares initiative of our colleagues in our South Africa Joint Venture who have assembled a team of employees from across the business, giving their time and support to help those less fortunate in their local community.
