Corporate Social Responsibility
Through our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) policies and principles we take our responsibility to act in an ethical, responsible and transparent manner very seriously. This approach underpins our brand, reputation and governance and helps us to grow in a responsible, holistic and sustainable fashion that is true to our founding values and beliefs. Our CSR policy and principles are incorporated in our business strategy. They are designed to promote shared values between us and our stakeholders, including our staff and clients. We therefore ensure that we deliver the best possible social and environmental outcomes for all stakeholders and that we are embedded into wider society and the local communities in which we are based and operate.
Valuing our Staff
Our success depends on our dedicated and devoted employees. We treat all members of staff as individuals and value them. We are committed to respecting their diversity, treating them fairly and take their human rights very seriously, as evidenced through well-established policies on equality of opportunity and diversity, anti-harassment and bullying. We pledge to provide staff with a working environment which is conducive to personal and professional growth, through our policies on flexible working, maternity leave, paternity leave, parental leave and learning and development.
We design the buildings and built environments of the future. We therefore believe that we have a special responsibility to help create buildings and environments that are sensitive to the environment and sustainable over their lifecycle. We actively specify sustainable materials, technologies and methods of construction for our projects wherever possible. We are also committed to minimising our own direct environmental impacts and energy consumption by implementing a series of policies and practices including internal recycling and waste management.
Building Information Modelling
We are at the forefront of the practical use of Building Information Modeling (BIM) as a tool of best practice in the global design industry, and have recently invested £1.2m in BIM design tools to enhance our services to clients. Through a strategic, multi-year deal with Autodesk, we are moving to a fully-integrated and cloud-based BIM strategy. This is enabling us to coordinate design work across our global office network and enhance our ability to work collaboratively with clients and partners on major projects – for example where the practice is lead consultant on major global projects.
Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement
Broadway Malyan is an international architecture, urbanism and design practice currently operating in the UK, EMEA, Asia Pacific and South America.
In compliance with the Modern Slavery Act 2015, this statement relates to the steps Broadway Malyan has taken to discharge its obligations under the Act and maintain that slavery and human trafficking does not take place in any part of its own business which includes its supply chains.
Broadway Malyan strives to maintain the highest standard of employee conduct and ethical behaviour. We encourage the confidential reporting of concerns related to the direct activities of our business and supply chains which is covered in our ‘Equality of Opportunity & Diversity Policy’ and ‘Grievance Procedure’. We also have a ‘Child Protection Policy’ in place which applies to staff and sub-consultants with the aim of protecting children and young people from maltreatment or exploitation. Our internal recruitment process engages only selected reputable employment agencies which seeks to eliminate the risk of slavery and human trafficking.
Verification and Risk Assessment
Our Industry experience and internal review mechanism to evaluate who we conduct business with is planned so as to only engage those who share our vision and values outlined in our organisational policies. Our sub-consultants are also appraised through a questionnaire which is designed to evaluate their adherence to the requirement of the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
A variety of training is offered to our staff from in person to online material to assist with their continuous responsibility for implementing and monitoring compliance to the prevention of slavery and human trafficking in the company’s corporate activities.
