A responsible, sustainable family business

ENVIRONMENT, EMPLOYEES AND ECONOMICS

Whatever your preferred order, these are three central components of our sustainable business.

Across decades of experience working on shows and events, Woodhouse has always aimed to achieve a balance in these factors, while investing in our employees and the business, and providing excellent service and innovative products to meet our clients’ demands.

We work on greenfield sites for most of our contracts, and we are known for our respectful treatment of our clients venues. Especially the care and attention we offer the ground, plants and animals - this includes clearing our waste responsibly as we go, to prevent hungry, inquisitive wildlife eating cable-ties and string cuttings. We also carry spill-kits in case of any accidental spillages onsite and to assist others where required.

We are one of a handful of responsible contractors in our industry sector who have achieved ISO 14001 for environmental management and ISO 20121 for event sustainability management. Now in our ninth year of external accreditation for these standards, we are confident we can operate to any of our client organisations’ sustainability requirements.

Our greatest responsibility is our people. We commit time and resources to training our employees and developing and retaining their unique skills – and to supporting them in their everyday challenges.
