Cliniwaste signs up to Armed Forces Covenant

For this Armed Forces Week 2020, Cliniwaste has formally marked its commitment to the British Armed Forces by signing the Armed Forces Covenant.

The signing of the Covenant signifies Cliniwaste’s recognition of the value that serving and reservist personnel, veterans and military families contribute to its business and the UK. It’s also a commitment by Cliniwaste to do more to support the employment of serving personnel, veterans and reservists to help make the transition out of military life easier.

It is worth noting that currently, 20% of Cliniwaste staff are military veterans, a fact that we are very proud of.

Cliniwaste’s General Manager commented, “As a veteran myself I understand the contribution that our Armed Forces and their families make to their country. Not only that I am fully aware that former military personnel can add significant value within civilian roles and we’re proud to support our forces community by signing the Covenant.”

What is the Armed Forces Covenant?

The Armed Forces Covenant was launched to encourage businesses and charities to do more to show their support for Armed Forces personnel.

It is a voluntary pledge of support for the armed forces community and includes two key principles – that no member of the armed forces community should face a disadvantage in the provision of public and commercial services compared to any other citizen, and that in some circumstances special treatment may be appropriate, especially for the injured or bereaved.
