Social Responsibility

City Cabs are committed in supporting and helping the local community in Edinburgh as well as actively doing all we can to improve our environmental and green credentials.

As a responsible Company owned by our members City Cabs believe that our long-term future is best served by respecting the interests of all our staff, customers, suppliers and wider community. We are continually looking at opportunities to improve the environment and to contribute to the well-being of the local communities in which we trade.

Social and environmental responsibility effects everyone and City Cabs aims to develop and implement social and environmental policies which fit in with our staff and members ever day activities and responsibilities.

We communicate our environmental policies, objectives and performance openly and honestly to our staff, members, customers and suppliers and seek encouragement from them to communicate with us on their views.

City Cabs are committed in improving our overall performance. We listen and take into account our customer concerns and expectations in the development and implementation of all new social and environmental policies and procedures. We monitor our performance, set objectives for improvements and report our progress and as minimum we will meet or exceed all relevant legislation.

We take all reasonable steps to manage our business so as to minimise our environmental impact and to promote good environmental practices. City Cabs set and follow high standards in our business practices and performance to identify how we can improve our energy efficiency, water usage, water disposal and air emissions.

We conduct all business relationships with integrity and courtesy and honour our trading commitments. Our aim is to build long-term relationships with our suppliers and provide support for small, local and specialist businesses.

City Cabs build relationships with our customers, suppliers and local communities we are part of, by encouraging our partners to consider the needs of others and involve themselves in public services. We will obtain a wide range of views on our social and environmental policies and performance.

We respect our members, staff and encourage their development and training. We promote equality as differences in responsibilities permit and consider the interests of our members including their welfare, health and safety. We aim to empower our members, staff and recognise individual contributions and reward our members, staff fairly. Our ultimate aim is the happiness of our members, staff through their worthwhile and satisfying employment in a successful business.
