Corporate Responsibility

Integrating responsibly with local business and the surrounding community

Corporate Responsibility (CR) has been an integral part of the way UMG operates to ensure all divisions respond to the environmental and social challenges that we face today.

Recognising CR as a fundamental role in under-pinning UMG’s growth strategy, with the already established ‘Unipart Way’ philosophy, we have based our working culture on engaging and empowering employees, customers, partners and suppliers at all levels of our organisation using ‘lean’ as a standard way of business operations.

As part of Unipart Group, we are a recognised leader in responsible business practice and act as a catalyst for CR, being recently awarded a four star rating in the 2014 Business in the Community Corporate Responsibility Index, the UK’s leading benchmark for responsible businesses.

When the electrical immersion system at our Honeybourne site needed replacing, our team of eco-friendly engineers looked for a way that would not only heat water, but that could utilise excess heat from a warm area of the building and transfer it to the water system – whilst still reducing our running and maintenance costs. Our team found a solution which is 400% efficient as opposed to the older immersion system, which was typically 95% efficient. Unipart was able to reduce running costs by approx £546 per year, and provide a means of cooling our hot areas, such as the kitchen. Another great example of our engineers thinking about a problem in a different way and coming up with a solution ... Click here to read more
