Corporate Social Responsibility

At MAST, we are first and foremost committed to acting ethically in our everyday business.  We want to go much further than that and see CSR as an opportunity to use our skills, knowledge, relationships and our global expertise to make a positive difference to individuals, society and the environment.   

Building trust, being open and approachable, and acting with integrity are vital to achieving this. Our ambition ensures that we play our part in making the world a safer place to live and work for our customers, our employees and the communities we support.

We  seek to unlock social value that creates positive economic, environmental and social impacts. It is not about being perfect but about continually striving to become better.  Championed by Phillip Cable, MAST CEO, our Social Value & Responsibility is supported by ‘Our Vision’ and ‘Our Core Values’ PRIME.

“Our vision is to be an inspirational and innovative risk management and security company that is
globally recognised and trusted.”

A Message from our CEO, Philip Cable LLP

I am the CEO and co-founder of MAST and it is my responsibility for developing and implementing strategy.  I have to be the face of the business and externally and internally set the right tone and culture ensuring that everyone buys into the strategy.

MAST recognise our responsibility and the importance of supporting and contributing to our communities in which we live and work and consider CSR as fundamental to our continued success as we rapidly grow and are viewed as an industry leader of providing security services.

For more than 16 years,  MAST has focused on issues relating to the environment and social responsibility.  Whilst we are proud of our heritage, we’re even more excited about the future and the part we play in helping to protect our environment and the people living in it.

We approach CSR as we approach our business in general in a well-planned, structured and measurable way.  Based on input from our customers, employees and suppliers we have an increased focus on setting our objectives in 8 key areas which are summarised as People, Partnerships and Planet and the entire team have my full support and commitment to ensure that we focus on these.

Equality & Diversity is taken very seriously by MAST. We are committed to equality of treatment and opportunity.  Everyone has the right to work without fear of intimidation, harassment or victimisation.

It is reflected in our core values to which MAST ascribes.

Diverse teams promote creativity.  Innovating requires different perspectives, different ideas and different experiences, at MAST we want to help our employees build long and rewarding careers and it’s working, we retain our people.

Charity

The founding shareholders of MAST have long been supporters of charity and MAST has always worked closely with ex-servicemen and women and many of our employees have also served in the Armed Forces.  Therefore, in selecting a charity it was important to us to maintain that link. 

MAST’s chosen charity is Veterans Aid (VA). All of our fundraising proceeds are donated to Veterans Aid. In supporting VA we hope not only to help access much-needed donations but also to raise awareness and inform a wider audience of the plight of those that find themselves homeless and in crisis.

The charities vision is to enable sustainable independent living but of course, this can take, weeks, months and even years of investment. They start with the provisions of food, clothing and shelter. Further support such as counselling, rehabilitation and medical treatments may also be required, as well as education, developing new skills and identifying employment opportunities before the veteran is ready to move into a new home.
