Values, Mission and Purpose
It starts with 'why?'
We founded Zephyr on the basis of the following core values -
We’re a breath of fresh air - to our clients and to our people
This is more than a tagline. It’s a fundamental principle on which we base everything we do.
We ensure that, when you work with us, you will enjoy a unique, positive experience.
We ‘do different’ – questioning tired old assumptions and cherishing innovation. Last year’s excellence or best practice is this year’s entry-level.
We’re equally rigorous in applying the same principles to the way we work with our team members. We’re committed to attracting and retaining the best talent in the sector. That’s why we provide a working environment that’s flexible, progressive and innovative.
We set the bar for others in the industry to touch.
But we won’t stop there. We drive innovation that leads to continual improvement.
People, Planet, Profit … in that order
We acknowledge that our business is a function of the people that work in it. We’re dedicated to fostering their professional development and growth.
We recognise that our business has a wider responsibility to the societies in which we operate.
We look to be progressive in our activities and to further social causes both within and external to our work.
If the work that we do and the manner in which we carry it out fails to leave the planet in a better state than how we found it, then we’ll decline the engagement.
We strive for profit. But – that profit does not come at the expense of the planet or our people. Profit enables us - and our people - to grow and to achieve our aspirations for reward and recognition.
We look for the ‘win-win’ in everything we do
We’ll always strive for a positive experience and outcome for our clients and for ourselves.
We also look for the Win-Win in all our dealings. If we encounter a ‘zero-sum game’, we re-think the solution until we find the Win-Win.
We take fun seriously
Life is too short to do something you don’t enjoy. If we’re not enjoying what we do, we’ll make the necessary and appropriate changes to ensure that we do. We recognise that downtime and play are as important to us as work.
We look after each other
We’re determined to treat our people with the same care and consideration with which we treat our clients. Whether it’s going the extra mile to support our colleagues with a challenging project, or checking in on their wellbeing, we are always one team.
Our Mission …
… to enjoy an international reputation for excellence within the environmental sector.
To leave things better than how we found them.
