Our Group operations are seen as part of the community in which they are located. We encourage the employment of local people into our businesses and vacancies are advertised within the local media and agencies. Devro is well-respected as an organisation within the communities it operates and this encourages loyalty from its employees. Our internal sustainability initiative workshops identified Communities as a key focus area for the Group and we have numerous examples of different generations of local families working for our business. This link with the community extends to charitable causes. We consider requests from local charitable organisations, as well as national and international causes. The following table sets out our charitable giving. Within the locality of our manufacturing sites we have various links with educational institutions providing work experience to school pupils, college and university students. The Company also provides support through charitable donations and resource.
