Our ethos

Sustainable,
responsible & inclusive

“ We want to do business in a sustainable way. Whether through our advisory services leading to investment decisions, our selection process leading to the spread of knowledge and skills, our promotion of gender diversity or our internal policies on offsetting our environmental impact.”

Tom Hopkinson, CEO - Taylor Hopkinson

Ethos

What drives us

Our vision is to enable a diverse, global workforce that will drive the world’s transition to sustainable energy.

To achieve this, we support our clients’ entry into emerging offshore wind, onshore wind and solar markets in a sustainable manner, and improve diversity within the sector.

Diversity

Together we achieve more

We are committed to attracting and placing the most diverse range of candidates globally, and this is reflected in everything we do. Our business is led by 3 females out of 7 directors, and our multilingual team features 8 nationalities, placing professionals in 38 countries.
 
In addition, we:
  • are members of the OWIC Gender Diversity Strategy Group.
  • invest in regular diversity training to support our team in a practical way, and recently confirmed a Partnership with The Big Fish Academy.
  • were awarded Recruiter of the Year 2019, with our commitment to diversity cited as a key asset.
  • are founding sponsor of WeBridge, a networking platform promoting gender diversity in renewables.
  • live our brand by carefully considering the language, imagery and messaging used on our website and in our materials to attract and engage with the most diverse audience.
  • contributed to and are featured in OWIC’s recent D&I Best Practice Guide, which highlights the importance of diversity in own our selection processes and also how we help our clients in attracting a diverse workforce.

Carbon neutral

We are 100% committed to Our future

We were recently awarded CarbonNeutral® flights certification from Natural Capital Partners. This certification verifies that we have successfully offset a total footprint of 140 tonnes of carbon emissions associated with our 2019 business-related air travel, within the requirements of the CarbonNeutral Protocol.

Find out more about our chosen carbon offset project – Theni Wind Power.

In addition, we continue to take steps as a business internally to reduce our carbon footprint in the following ways:

  • Our office provides state-of-the-art VC facilities and we support flexible working, reducing our need to travel
  • We recycle and use recycled good where possible
  • Our environmental policy is devoted to a paperless office
  • We offer a cycle-to-work scheme for all employees
  • We use a local supply chain on procurement of goods and services where possible

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)

We’ve raised over £25k ....and counting

In 2012, we committed to undertake a minimum of one fundraising effort a year for amazing causes. This year we’re embarking on an epic global team effort to run / walk / cycle (or practically any other chosen self propelled method!) the distance between our international offices by 28 March 2021 – that’s 26,770km!

This symbols our solidarity as an international team, and will raise valuable funds for life saving and enriching international care charities – Samaritans and IASP.

In recent years, our team has successfully completed the challenges below, raising over £25k for charity partners such as Renewable World, Cancer Research, The Alzheimer Society, Do-nation, MS SocietyCLIC Sargent and Childrens Cancer and Leukemia Group (CCLG).

  • Tough Mudder
  • A 22 mile summit run up Mount Snowdon
  • A 215 mile bike ride from Durham to Edinburgh in 2015, via 7 wind farms
  • ‘Man vs Lakes’ – a 26.2 mile run / assault course through the Lake District
  • ‘Coast to Coast’ challenge – 105 miles across the Scottish Highlands
