Corporate Social Responsibility Policy
At Clockwork we are proud of our track record in risk management and health and safety and are committed to building a safe working environment to protect the interests of our employees and customers.
Our North London branch holds the BS OHSAS 18001-2007, the national standard in health and safety. Clockwork’s health and safety management systems and procedures meet exceptionally high standards, consistently identifying and controlling health and safety risks, reducing the risk of accidents and ensuring full legislative compliance
Our Green approach translates into every aspect of our day-to-day operations and within our CSR plan we continually set ourselves demanding environmental targets to measure ourselves against.
We have specific goals and policies to ensure that we minimize our environmental impact wherever possible. Our North London branch holds the ISO14001 Environmental Management Systems certification and all our projects and procedures comply with this.
We implement this policy in all parts of our operations, here are just some of the ways in which we strive to do this:
- Recycling packing materials wherever possible.
- Sourcing high quality recycled packing materials.
- Partnering with eco-friendly organisations for our recycling and disposal services.
- All drivers are trained in responsible driving and fuel efficiency.
- Vehicles are selected on a life cycle cost basis taking into account fuel efficiency, emissions, and maintenance and repair costs.
- Reduce empty running by better planning and backloading.
- Fleet replacement policy in line with London’s Low Emission Zone requirements.
To further minimise our environmental impact we work alongside Carbon Footprint, taking part in their UK tree planting initiative in which we plant a tree for every container we ship throughout the world.
At Clockwork we are committed to protecting and improving the local communities in which our branches operate, throughout the UK. Examples of the ways in which we get involved include; supplying boxes for use at food banks, sponsoring schools and local sports teams and where possible, offering specialised removals for charities.

The charity of rugby, Wooden Spoon, aims to positively transform the lives of disabled or disadvantaged children across Britain. Recently, the charity organised a Scotland vs. Wales Wooden Spoon Match and fundraising event which helped with raising lots of money for those in need.
“The provision the auction prize from Clockwork Removals was hugely generous and very much appreciated by the committee. Indeed, it attracted the highest proceeds for any auction item on the day and contributed hugely to the success of the event. However, the real appreciation will emanate from the children and young people whom the charity assists.” – John, Treasurer of the Scottish Committee of the Wooden Spoon
The Shoot is a major shooting and social event based in Auchterhouse, Dundee. With over 400 guests in attendance the event is well known for being the perfect day out for shooters with varying levels of experience. £3.2m has been raised and distributed to charities across Scotland since it started 18 years ago.
“Thank you Clockwork Removals for your kind donation to this year’s Shoot, which was attended by more than 400 guests on Sunday 11th August. In total, we raised £230k on the day, which will be divided between our chosen charities, Maggie’s Cancer Centres, JDRF, Seamab and CLIC Sargent.” – Gerard Eadie CBE
The Army’s National Charity
ABF, The Soldiers’ Chairty, works hard to provide support to soldiers, war veterans and their families when they need it most. The charity was first established in 1944 to give help to soldiers returning from the war, but now the charity helps more than 70,000 people every year.
“I am delighted to report that, greatly exceeding our hopes, the D-Day 75th Anniversary Dinner raised over £108,000 (net) for the Army’s national charity. It was great to have such a generous donation from Clockwork Removals – the money this raised equates to a typical grant to an individual or family – Clockwork’s generosity really will be life changing!” – Charles Dunphie – Director, ABF The Soldiers’ Charity
