We take our responsibilities seriously and wherever possible, have an ongoing review of all our policies to ensure they are fully integrated into our working practices and are not just boxes we can tick of a list.

We know that common business practices can adversely affect the environment, simply through everyday activities such as business travel and disposal of company waste. Aawen Design Studio is committed to minimising the impact we have on the environment.
We have a number of core environmental principles (listed below), which we strive to adhere to and which are in constant review to ensure we act in the best interest of the environment on an ongoing basis. All of our employees are informed of these principles upon commencement of their employment and are encouraged to maintain and enhance them.
Aawen Design Studio aims to work towards the continuous improvement of its environmental management and as such these policies are reviewed and amended on a regular basis.
To align with our ethical standards in employment and environmental issues, Aawen is keenly aware of our wider social responsibility to the local community. To help us achieve our objectives in this area, in 2006 Aawen became an active a member of the Business in the Community “Pro-help Scheme”. This scheme was created to allow businesses to contribute their services on a pro bono basis, to benefit community organisations who through lack of funds, would not ordinarily be recipients of these professional business services.
During our association with the Pro-help scheme we have been able to offer creative consultation and practical design services to a variety community organisations who have found our contribution to their development invaluable. Our genuine desire to support these organisations in a businesslike and effective manner has not only resulted in their prosperity, but has rewarded us with great personal satisfaction.
Similarly, we create design work for a number of local Charities and will often provide our services at either a reduced rate or even for free when we are able to do so responsibly.
