Charity & CSER

Embracing our Corporate, Social & Environmental Responsibilities (CSER)

Our CSER Philosophy: People, Planet and Products

Creed Philosophy

We are committed to ‘believing in more’ for our environment and for all stakeholders. As a business we’re continually focused on our sustainable ‘vision’; to drive down our carbon footprint (CO² emissions – tonnes) by 7.5% each year for the next two years ahead of the UK Government’s 2020 commitment.

Creed Philosophy - PeopleMaking a difference with Charity Work

Our charity work is extremely important to us and we are proud to support a number of carefully selected local and national charities. Throughout 2018 we provided continuous support to our chosen charities with food donations, fundraising, charitable campaigns, volunteering and events.

Throughout 2018, our charity committee and employees have remained focused on our responsibility and we have continued to maintain strong relationships with our nominated charities. Our Creed Lottery has also raised an additional £8,163 for charity.

In 2018 Creed donated time worth £7,668.75, cash and food to 104 fundraising events amounting to £45,026.97

Creed Philosophy - PlanetOur Sustainability Vision

“To drive down our carbon footprint (CO2 emissions – tonnes) by 7.5% each year, ahead of the UK Government’s 2020 commitment.”

In order to achieve this and fulfil our environmental responsibilities, our action plan focuses on key areas including:

Responsible Water Management

Hazardous waste taken from our vehicle wash down interceptors is disposed of responsibly.


Our entire company representatives’ fleet consists of vehicles below 110 CO2/km, which contributes towards our vision to significantly reduce carbon emissions.

Recycling of cardboard & plastic

We are founder signatories to the WRAP ‘HaFS’ initiative which is designed to make considerable improvements in the recycling of material throughout the supply chain.

Creed Philosophy - ProductResponsible Sourcing & Recycling of food

We are committed to supplying high-quality products that are sourced and manufactured in an ethical and environmentally responsible way. All of our suppliers must be accredited and meet a strict set of standards which are detailed in our CSER Report.

To reduce our impact on landfill, we donate in date, ‘short life’ food to local charities such as The Wiggly Worm.

We recognise and understand our responsibilities to ethical working practices. The company is absolutely committed to those ethical practices, preventing slavery and human trafficking in our activities, and ensuring that our supply chains are free from slavery and human trafficking.

Armed Forces Covenant

We signed up to the Armed Forces Covenant in 2015 to show our support for the UK’s armed forces community. Signing the corporate covenant marked Creed’s recognition of the value that serving regular and reservist personnel, veterans and military families contribute to its business and to the UK. The company aims to offer employment where possible to ex-servicemen and women, and support any reservists.

The butchery unit is first class, very modern unit, very organised and a well-run place. Everybody I spoke to has a real passion for their job and to supply me with the best quality meat. I really like the fact that are sourcing very good meat direct from the farms and everybody has the same goal to supply the best they can.
