Corporate Social Responsibility
As an organisation focused on service excellence, Tivoli sees corporate social responsibility as being an active and cooperative partnership; working in close collaboration with our clients, our suppliers, our local communities and others whom we touch to deliver real benefits and long term improvements to society and the environment.
Tivoli’s community ethos is simple, to make a positive impact in the communities where we live and operate.
We have a strong focus on supporting young people and those furthest from the workforce into employment and forming strong partnerships with social enterprise groups.
For example, Tivoli has worked with community groups to support traineeships for 16-18 year olds who are Not in Education, Employment & Training (NEET), to boost the local economy, tackle unemployment, and provide young people with a pathway to employment, apprenticeships or Level 2 education. We’ve also supported employer-led Community Based Transitional Employment Training Programmes (CBET), and community youth team projects.
Tivoli’s aim is to not only reduce any negative environmental impact on society but also reinvest in it. Through our ISO 14001 accreditation we continue to demonstrate a robust approach to maintaining a sustainable and ethical business, which is reflected in our projects that create clean, green and safe environments.
We know that our clients have their own sustainability ambitions and wider net zero commitments, and we work with them to achieve their required standards of environmental sustainability, as well as collaborating to provide further initiatives and ideas relating to industry-specific horticultural activities. This includes energy and emissions reduction measures; water efficiency; waste management; local emissions reduction from vehicle fleet & plant/equipment; and goods and materials sustainability.

HEALTH AND SAFETY
We strive to protect the health and safety of our workforce, our customers, and their end users. We recognise that our success and our future require us to carry out our operations in a safe and environmentally conscious way.
It is this focus that has led to us winning 13 consecutive Gold Medals from RoSPA (Royal Society for Prevention of Accidents) resulting in 2020, 2021, 2022 and 2023 President’s Awards for our outstanding standards in occupational Health & Safety.
Organisations receiving a RoSPA Award are recognised as being world-leaders in health and safety practice. Every year, nearly 2,000 entrants vie to achieve the highest possible accolade in what is the UK’s longest-running H&S industry awards. For more information about RoSPA visit https://www.rospa.com/

Our charitable endeavours have included working with veterans charities such as Gardening Leave and HighGround, both of whom use horticultural therapy to benefit veterans with mental health issues. Our employees also regularly fundraise for lots of other local charities.
Key highlights include over 2,000 hours volunteered by Tivoli employees, 300 veterans’ lives transformed and £300,000 donations leveraged due to the support of Tivoli.
We are also very proud partners of Perennial – the charity dedicated to supporting those working in, or retired from the horticulture industry. For more information about Perennial and the support they can provide, visit their website at https://perennial.org.uk/
ARMED FORCES EMPLOYMENT
Tivoli has been awarded Silver Armed Forces Covenant Employer Recognition Award status in which we have pledged and demonstrated our support for the Armed Forces. This includes employing serving and former members of the Armed Forces community and demonstrating flexibility towards training and mobilisation commitments for Reservists and Cadet Force Adult Volunteers. We recognise the vital role of Britain’s Armed Forces, and the valuable contribution that members of the Reserve Forces make to Britain’s defence.
Tivoli is an armed forces-friendly company and are open to employing reservists, armed forces veterans (including the wounded, injured and sick), cadet instructors and military spouses/partners. We recognise that these individuals have a diverse set of transferable skills that will be a real benefit to our industry and company.
