A Responsible Choice

A responsible safety partner

Partnering with Arco gives you access to strategic, joined-up safety solutions for your business - and also means you're making a responsible and sustainable choice. As a family-run business, our culture and ethos is built on integrity and driven by our core goal of keeping people safe.

It's a responsibility to you, your people, our own team and the planet that we take very seriously. You can rely on us to keep pushing for better, offering you:

  • Reliable supply
  • A commitment to sustainability
  • Reinvestment in improving our services
  • A commitment to ending Modern Day Slavery
  • Continuously improving standards
  • Waste and energy management schemes

Committed to Our Community

We're an active supporter of a range of community partnerships, building on ethical trading principles and supply chain community projects. We're proud to donate 1% of our pre-tax profits to charity and Arco team members receive two extra days' paid leave each year for community projects to give back to the things that matter most to them.

In addition, we also contribute financial support, product and expertise to hundreds of groups and charities, continuing to assist our long-standing partners as they face unprecedented demand for their selfless services.

The work we do does not just stop here; we also work with customers to help them support charities to meet their social value goals.

Hear about the amazing work Action for Children are doing with our sponsorship of two new roles at the charity, linked with our supply of respiratory protection to NHS Scotland.

Ethical Trading Standards

We're committed to making a difference in eradicating Modern Day Slavery. We pride ourselves on having an ethical supply policy and providing ethically-sourced products. You might be surprised by the extent of slavery in supply chains that you are already familiar with. We strive to help manage your obligations to eradicate Modern Day Slavery.

Committed to Our Climate

Our sustainable approach helps you to fulfil your environmental commitments. Partnering with Arco gives you peace of mind that the safety products and services you receive have come from a business that is focussed on sustainability in its use of energy, materials and resources.

The energy used across our estate is generated from 100% renewable sources, and we have already achieved over 5 tonnes of packaging reduction. We're also proud to be Gold Members of the Supply Chain Sustainability School, have reduced our carbon and water footprint, and are making strides with the electrification of our vehicles.

Committed to Our Climate

Committed to Our Colleagues

As well as providing job security for our employees, we're focussed on a number of other initiatives to ensure our team's health, development and satisfaction. From our emphasis on diversity and inclusion to our mental health first aiders and people managers, employee wellbeing is at the forefront of everything we do.

Committed to Our Colleagues

Committed to Circularity

Finally, we have long maintained a commitment to circularity - striving for a circular economy by designing out waste and pollution, and regenerating natural resources. We play a leading role in influencing industry standards when it comes to sustainable product development and packaging solutions.
