As a sustainable and responsible business, Marshalls pays its fair share of tax. As such, we are proud to be Fair Tax accredited. The Fair Tax Mark is given to businesses who display a transparency in their tax affairs and who are proud to state the fact they are good tax payers. We are the first company in our sector to have accreditation and we are eager to promote a fair and transparent tax system.
As part of our commitment to our people, Marshalls has again been awarded the Living Wage Employers Accreditation. The Living Wage is calculated according to the basic cost of living in the UK. The Living Wage, not to be confused with the ‘National Living Wage’ introduced and set by the UK government, is higher and employers choose to pay it voluntarily. Paying a Living Wage is without a doubt good for business, good for individuals and good for society. We know that having people who feel valued and properly rewarded allows us to deliver the best for our people, customers, partners and stakeholders.
Marshalls has achieved the BES 6001 accreditation for the responsible sourcing of Construction Products and BES6002 for Ethical Labour Sourcing.
Creating safe spaces is a compromise between maintaining the open, liveable nature of the public realm and the necessity for security. Marshalls continues to commit to developing landscape protection products in response to the need for better protection from terror attacks. Our solutions not only protect our heritage, they build resilience.
Sustainable Development Goals
Through our active support of the United Nations Global Compact, and by adhering to the ten principles, we endeavour to behave responsibly. Part of this support is our ongoing commitment to contribute to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We do this by engaging with governments, collaborating with UN partners, developing innovative products which respond to environmental challenges, addressing modern slavery and transparency in our global supply chain and putting sustainability at the heart of what we do.
