Sustainability at CQC

At CQC our aim is to ensure that our products are manufactured to high quality standards and meet our customers’ expectations whilst minimising our environmental footprint.

We comply with the requirements of ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 and seek to improve sustainability through continual improvement activities whilst complying with environmental legislation and health & safety.

All our activities target sustainable environmental improvement; compliance with health & safety and environmental legislation is measured and monitored on a regular basis. In this way we aim to protect the health and safety of our employees, sub-contractors, the local community and customers, whilst contributing to the future wellbeing of the environment.


Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) plays an important part in our business and we are committed to increasing positive change and promoting environmental sustainability.

We aim to maintain environmentally sustainable operations by reducing resource consumption, by increasing recycling and reusing materials and waste.

We have developed our UK operations to be zero to landfill by reusing and segregating all of our waste within operation. A local charity collects this waste which includes off-cuts of materials, sewing thread, and rolls/tubes from webbing and Velcro; they then pass them onto local schools and art groups for use in lessons and craft sessions.

Together with our employees, customers, the community and other stakeholders, we are able to support sustainable projects around the world.

We have achieved and continue to support the following:

  • Provide equipment for free to local cadet forces
  • Raise money for local charities (raffles, cake sales)
  • We support the Armed Forces Covenant and employ ex-military personnel
  • We supported the North Dorset Rugby Club – in consultation with the RFU - by shipping rugby kit to grass-roots clubs in sub-Saharan Africa; it was the first time that these clubs had been able to issue playing strips, boots and protective equipment to children
