People and Community
Our people make us the business we are today.
We operate to the highest legal and ethical standards with all our stakeholders and support wide-ranging good causes.
Our actions have been designed to make us an attractive employer, provide opportunities for personal development, improve health and well-being, and provide safe, comfortable and inspiring workplaces.
Our objective is to set the standard for design, manufacturing and sustainability in our chosen markets, by inspiring customer success, making the best product, and building a company we are proud of.
Investing in people
Every one of our 650 strong workforce has an active role to play in the successful delivery of our sustainability actions, so we work hard to embed sustainability into our company culture and daily behaviors.
It begins right at the recruitment and selection phase, through comprehensive induction, performance development and training, and wide ranging internal communications activities to ensure motivation and engagement.
Sustainability Steering Committee
We have a Sustainability Steering Committee responsible for defining and delivering our sustainable development aims and principles, actively supported by our Board of Directors.
Our CEO, Alan Williams sits on the Board of our main industry body UKFT (UK Fashion and Textiles), is on the Board of the North of England’s Textile Centre of Excellence, and is an active member of the Furniture Makers Company, all of which influence the broader development of the sustainability agenda in textiles and furniture.
Commercial Director Anthony Croall is on the Regional Advisory Board of Make UK and represents Camira on the UK government funded project ACT UK (Automatic Sorting for Circular Textiles Demonstrator).
