Here at Kimpton Energy Solutions we have believed in living up to our corporate and social responsibility since the business was formed in 1963. We believe we should be a force for good and care about our customers, our team and the area in which we live and work. We aim to maximise our positive impact and minimise our waste within our community and beyond. You can download our full Corporate and Social Responsibility Policy here.
As a family-owned Wirral based company we have always believed in supporting our local community. We do this through our commitment to supporting our own team in their own charitable endeavours as well as local charities and local volunteer run organisations, to which we give time, money and support.
We fully understand the impact we have as a local employer in supporting our local economy.
Almost all of our team live and work within Wirral. We have offered work experience to many Wirral school children and undergraduates. We have recruited over 100 apprentices within all areas of the business and many still work with us today, some in very senior positions. We encourage our team to have a positive impact on the community in which they live.
At Kimpton Energy Solutions we work hard to reduce our environmental impact, both in the way we operate as a head office and on-site in the projects we deliver. Our overall aim is to ensure that all operations are carried out in a way that achieves the highest standard of Environmental care (ISO 14001) and Occupational Health and Safety (ISO 18001). These aren’t just tick box standards but are ways of thinking and working that are championed throughout the business.
You can read our full environmental policy here.
We believe in delivering quality throughout the business and have maintained the Quality Standard BS5750 since 1989 and were the first to achieve this for any company of our size in the North West.
At Kimpton Energy Solutions we believe that we should support our local charities and community groups. We strive to encourage the next generation in our community to create a positive impact for their future. We encourage their involvement, by providing advice and fundraising opportunities. Here are just a few of the ways in which we help play our part in the local community:
As a team, we are involved in many projects in our community and here are some recent examples:
Two of the Kimpton team gave up their Saturday to collect Christmas trees for Nightingale House Hospice. The initiative raised over £5,500 for the charity and was supported by 16 local businesses. You can read more about that here.
The Kimpton team donated food and other goods and delivered them in time for distribution over Christmas.
Just before Christmas we held a Christmas jumper day for the team. Money was raised for Save the Children by paying to take part and being fined for either a poor choice of jumper or not taking part!
The Kimpton team are on-site at Avril Robarts in Liverpool and with our partners Willmott Dixon, the team collected money and toys for the charity Mission Christmas – Cash For Kids
We also worked on a collection and donation for Knowsley Food Bank which is part of The Big Help Project. You can see Matt, our BDM from the Kimpton team here with a very full van, being donated.
We believe that work experience for a student is only as good as the effort you put into yourself as an employer. We therefore offer genuinely worthwhile Work Experiences for students who show a real interest in the world of work. A recent one we completed with Josh Anderson that you can read about here, where it changed his whole thinking on his route to complete his degree.
Wirral Metro Swimming Club is a performance swimming club based at Europa Pools, Birkenhead. One of our team volunteers for them and Kimpton became sponsors to add to their much needed funds for attending swim meets that are held UK wide.
Our Managing Director Richard Kimpton trained for over six months, lost huge amounts of weight in order to take part (and win) a white collar boxing event that raised many thousands for the Charity.

We have worked with Anselmians for many years and been the lead sponsor in numerous events at every level of the game, from the mini rugby and the women’s team, right through to our involvement with the recently promoted first team that now play in the North One West League.
Two of the Kimpton directors were part of a team that took part in a sponsored run from Leeds to Liverpool over four days – a distance of some 130 miles. As part of the fundraising, the team also contributed £10k towards the complete refurbishment of their playground.

Working with our friends at Trustland, we completely refurbished the changing rooms at this boxing club. They began back in 1982 with the motto “We never turn anyone away” which fits in perfectly with our CSR aims. They aim to give youngsters the opportunity to learn the art of amateur boxing in a safe environment. One of our apprentices, Connor Leatt is an active member.

Working with this great sporting club we reconfigured their existing heating system to suit the buildings new use as a sporting venue. It had previously been used as office space.
In a recent project, Lee Williams our storeman/driver organised an U14’s football charity tournament that managed to raise in excess of £600 for the Clatterbridge Cancer Charity. The charity is doing fantastic work and are in the process of building Liverpool’s first cancer hospital in the centre of the city.
