Our Social Impact

The Mears approach to delivering Social Value

A desire to make a positive difference wherever we operate has always been at the heart of our business. It was 30 years ago when we were a small maintenance contractor with a single van; and it still is now we have 12,000 employees and a national presence.

Our work brings us into contact with some of the most vulnerable people in society, living in some of our most socially deprived communities. As we grow, so do the opportunities and our sense of responsibility to make a positive difference. That’s why we continue to value and invest in Social Value activity; ensuring that it runs like a thread through everything we do in every part of our business.
