Ethical & Responsible
We have set out clear objectives aligned with the company’s core values and deliver measurable social outcomes. We support each and every office in our network to individually meet these objectives, and we continuously engage with our staff, our management, and the community to evolve our CSR strategies and improve engagement across the company and within the recognised Corporate Responsibility pillars of Community, Marketplace, Workplace and Environment.
Ardmac invests in scalable and self-sustaining programs that focus on meeting some of society’s biggest challenges.
We deploy our expertise, technology, partnerships, and financial resources to back organisations and initiatives that improve people’s lives. Some of these partnerships include Techies for Temple Street, The Christie Hospital, Irish Cancer Society, St. Vincent De Paul’s Annual Christmas Toy Drives, as well as supporting the local sports clubs of our staff members and communities in which we operate. In the UK, we support local organisations in the community including Mustard Tree, Macmillan and have completed volunteer activities including the redecorating of Christ Church South Way facilities.

Our commitment to healthy workplaces encourages employees to focus on their own health and wellness.
