Our journey towards sustainability

Going beyond - for people and planet

The beginning of our journey

Sustainability is one of our guiding principles. It's included in all our decision-making and holds us accountable in our pursuit of positive impact. We are sure this is how we will shape the future of business: going above and beyond for our team and customers, supporting them to succeed and become the leaders of tomorrow.

Whilst this is the start of team.blue's journey, I can promise we are here for the long term. There has never been a more important time for businesses to think and act on social and environmental issues. team.blue is committed to continuous progress and sharing our learnings.

Crucially, we're not afraid to make mistakes. We will learn from them to serve our customers better so they can continue to serve the world.

Having such a long relationship with my company is a beautiful feeling. I feel very happy and proud with my relationship here, knowing my colleagues like friends, being trusted, being relied upon, the flexibility and being in a company that puts family first. I could not recommend names.co.uk and team.blue more, in my eyes they are my ‘forever’ employer.
