Fulfilling Responsibilities

Alzheimer’s Society

Charity Partner

Our nominated charity is the Alzheimer’s Society.

At Arcus, we believe that building a strong business and better communities are not conflicting goals, but essential components for long term success. We place corporate and social responsibility firmly at the heart of our business and strive to make a positive impact through active involvement with charities, communities and environmental causes. We are certified to ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 45001, and maintain a comprehensive programme of assurance for Quality, Environmental and Health & Safety systems.

As equal opportunity employers, we value diversity. Arcus is dedicated to providing a safe working environment for all our staff, in which no-one suffers discrimination, either directly or indirectly, because of their gender, race, ethnic or national origin, marital status, disability, sexual orientation, religious beliefs or age. Our equality & diversity statement is available to view under the policy section.


Sustainability is at the core of our operations. We constantly work to reduce harmful impacts on the environment through our practices and systems. Whilst there’s still further to go, so far we have:


Reduced paper ream usage by 92%


Increased waste recycling by 59%


Nearly halved our CO2 Emissions


Introduced eco-friendly pool cars for staff use

Minimising Our Impact


We strive to minimise the impact that our business has on the environment, both internally and externally. Our teams work to deliver the most sustainable projects possible, and Arcus staff are encouraged to car share or use public transport where possible. We also participate in the Cycle to Work scheme, helping staff to reduce carbon emissions whilst promoting healthy lifestyles.

Sustainable Communities


We are committed to building sustainable communities. We prioritise the employment and development of local people, work with local supply chains, maximise employment opportunities and incorporate training initiatives into our projects wherever possible.
