We have been carbon neutral since 2021 and are proud to be one of the first companies in the pensions industry to take such a significant step towards climate change.

ISO 14001 Our Environmental Management System

Heywood is certified to ISO 14001: 2015. We have an externally audited Environmental Management System which comprises policies, processes, plans, practices, and records that define how we can minimise our impact on theenvironment.

Electric Car Scheme

This scheme helps employees to obtain an electric car, saving between 30-60% on the monthly cost of a brand-new electric car lease. The scheme provides an all-inclusive package that includes the lease car, servicing, maintenance and a home charge point.

Our Environmental Commitment

We are fully committed to protecting and improving the quality of our working and local environments. We work proactively with our employees, customers and suppliers to achieve a safer, cleaner, healthier and sustainable environment which will meet present and future legislative needs.

Cycle to Work Scheme

Our Cycle to Work Scheme is a great eco-friendly benefit for our employees and keeps our carbon footprint low. Employees choose their equipment and Heywood buys it, hiring it to the employee who repays the cost over 12 months. The scheme offers tax and NI savings of up to 47%on the cycle.

Our Partnership with the Turing Trust

We donate old PCs to the Turing Trust, a charity which wipes data and restores unwanted computers before shipping them to Africa. The computers then start a new life – helping to enhance the education of both children and adults.

Renewable Energy

We have committed to purchasing 100% renewable energy by the end of 2023. Renewable source energy means purchasing from suppliers who generate electricity from non-carbon sources.

Our Data Centres

Our data centres are amongst the greenest facilities in Europe. They are managed in a sustainable way and are supplied with 100% renewable energy. They are ISO 14001 accredited and have achieved a Power Usage Efficiency (PUE) of 1.1.
