Responsible business

Our Plan, Your Future

Being a responsible business is integral to the day-to-day running of our business. This means the way we do business is not only about the short term returns but also about building a sustainable business that creates economic, environmental and social value.

Engaging with our employees, supply chain and the wider business community enables us to maximise the impact of our activities in ways that meet both business objectives and community needs. This approach achieves real behavioural change and measurable social results.

Our Plan, Your Future is the responsible business strategy of Trivallis. This is driven by a strong understanding of the key social issues affecting our tenants, communities and wider society.  We recognise that as a housing provider in Wales we have a vital role to play in creating a fairer society, combating climate change and raising aspirations within communities, just to name a few.

Our Plan, Your Future is based on the four key areas:

Your Workplace

To create an inspiring, supportive and dynamic workplace where employees will develop and thrive.

Your Marketplace

To collaborate with our supply chain partners and the wider business community in order to deliver social impact.

Your Environment

To reduce the environmental impact and carbon footprint of our business, our homes and our communities in order to combat climate change.

Your Community

To tackle key social issues affecting our tenants and neighbourhoods in order to change people’s lives and communities for the better.

Business in the Community

Trivallis is a proud member of Business in the Community, a business-led charity that stands for responsible business.

As part of its Responsible Business Network in Wales, we seek to engage with the businesses community in Wales and participate in a number of its programmes including its volunteering movement Give & Gain Day.

We have been recognised at BITC Cymru’s Responsible Business Awards for our work to tackle issues faced by our tenants every day including high energy costs, poor access to online services, lack of financial advice and unemployment.

Having been recognised in 2012 and 2014 as Wales’ Responsible Large Business of the Year, we received reaccreditation in 2016 recognising the sustained impact of our responsible business strategy.

Adrian Barber, Interim Chief Executive Officer at Trivallis says:

“At Trivallis, it is our vision to be trusted as an open and inspiring organisation that changes people’s lives and communities for the better. We believe that in order to achieve this, responsible business needs to be everyone’s responsibility.

From our plumbers to our partner organisations, everyone has a part to play in delivering a high quality service to our tenants and building strong, sustainable communities.

What we do is about more than just the bricks and mortar and being a responsible business makes us proud to be here.”
