More than just tech

Everything we do – from paying our taxes to offering carbon negative solutions – can be traced back to our commitment to do the right thing

Our Pledges

Social value has become somewhat of a buzzword. But to us, it’s the positive and measurable impact that we create by doing the right thing. Whether that be for our communities, partners, suppliers, staff, the environment or the economy. We believe that our approach to delivering impact-driven technology solutions will help shape a safer, greener future.

  • Innovation

    UKCloud transforms public services through impact-driven technology solutions which positively benefit society and the economy whilst increasing the capability and capacity of the UK to be at the forefront of the global digital revolution.

  • Health and Wellbeing

    We support the UK health and social care sector to deliver improved patient outcomes and we support our people to seek, understand and improve their emotional and physical wellbeing.

  • Economy

    UKCloud will help to grow national and local economies through responsible tax practices, its partner ecosystem and supply chains.

  • Education and Skills

    UKCloud will drive an inclusive agenda for digital skills through its early career programme and open community education to address the national skills deficit and aid the tech-led recovery post-COVID.

  • Crime and Justice

    Support our diverse defence and national security communities to deliver industry-leading technology solutions whilst maintaining inclusivity.

  • Leadership

    Value-based and ethical decision-making is central to how UKCloud ‘does the right thing’ for society as a whole.

  • Environmental

    UKCloud is acting now to protect our planet for future generations through its carbon negative programme. One small example being that we recycle almost 100% of all retired data centre equipment (excluding hard drives).

  • Social and Community

    The UKCloud Foundation will continue to level the playing field through the ongoing support of people-led impact for the community.

“This award recognises UKCloud’s outstanding commitment to independently measure and report the value they deliver for society. As the first tech firm to receive the award, they’ve taken steps to define what it means for them, their services and their culture.”
Richard Dickens
Founder, Quality Mark

As we grow, so do your savings

As part of the MOU agreement we signed last year, we made a commitment to pass on future savings to our customer.

Sure, economies of scale is a top-line benefit of growth, but we want to reinject those savings back into the UK economy. At the very core of UKCloud sits a desire to help save money for the UK taxpayer – and this is just one small way we can contribute.

Champions of innovation in the public sector

We’ve partnered with over 300 specialist organisations to help remove the internal pressure that has been heaped on public sector organisations to develop new, cloud-native services.

Why build when you can buy? Remember, by going SaaS – you’ll benefit from an ever-evolving feature set that enterprise IT teams rarely have time to deliver. Win-win.

Actions speak louder than words

We are the first technology firm in the UK to receive the Social Value Quality (SVQ) Mark award.

Granted level one status – and already well on our way to level two – we’re been audited by SVQ and have successfully demonstrated our commitment to research, measure and report on our social impact. More about SVQ is available here.

1. Early Career Opportunities

Our headcount has, and always will have a significant proportion set aside for apprenticeship and undergraduate programmes. We’re proud to have given so many young people the chance to kick-start their career’s within the IT sector.

2. We pay our taxes in full

We always pay our fair share. Whether that’s through responsible tax practices or highly-competitive salaries. We’re proud our business has a part to play in the wider health of the UK economy.

3. Carbon Negative Solutions

All our customers enjoy a monthly carbon offset certificate as standard. And after being recognised by CCS as a strategic supplier of multi-cloud, we’re committed to becoming carbon negative.

A word from our CEO

At UKCloud, our passion is to do the right thing by citizens and taxpayers and we have always recognised the importance of Social Value to the UK economy. This Quality Mark from Social Value Business provides clear and independent evidence of our commitment to be a leader in the UK tech industry.
