Environmental, Social & Governance Practices and Policies at Giddy Goat Toys 

At Giddy Goat Toys, we are committed to promoting environmental, social, and governance (ESG) practices that align with our values and contribute to a sustainable future. We recognize the importance of taking responsibility for our impact on the environment, supporting our community, and ensuring sound governance practices. This ESG policy outlines our commitment and the principles we adhere to in order to fulfil our obligations.


  1. Environmental Responsibility:
  • Sustainable Product Sourcing: We prioritize sourcing products that are environmentally friendly, ethically produced, and safe for children. We aim to work with suppliers who share our commitment to sustainable practices and strive to minimize the ecological footprint of our products.
  • Waste Reduction and Recycling: We promote waste reduction and recycling within our operations. We aim to minimize packaging waste and encourage the reuse, recycling, or repurposing of materials wherever possible. Where possible we use recycled materials for packing our outgoing online orders.
  • Energy Efficiency: We strive to minimize energy consumption in our shop and promote energy-efficient practices, such as using LED lighting, implementing smart energy management systems, and encouraging staff to adopt energy-conscious behaviours.


  1. Social Responsibility:
  • Responsible Supply Chain: We are committed to working with suppliers who adhere to fair labour practices, respect human rights, and provide safe working conditions.
  • Community Engagement: We believe in giving back to our community. We actively support local initiatives, charities, and events that align with our values, with a particular focus on promoting child development, education, and well-being. We support local school PTA’s and we also sponsor the goats in Longford Park, Chorlton.
  • Diversity and Inclusion: We foster an inclusive and diverse work environment, treating all employees with fairness, respect, and equality. We value diversity in our workforce and do not tolerate discrimination.


  1. Governance:
  • Ethical Business Practices: We conduct our business with integrity, honesty, and transparency. We comply with all applicable laws and regulations and strive to exceed legal requirements whenever possible. We promote a culture of ethical behaviour and believe in leading by example.
  • Data Protection and Privacy: We respect the privacy and confidentiality of our customers and stakeholders. We implement robust data protection measures to safeguard personal information and comply with applicable data protection laws.
  • Stakeholder Engagement: We value our stakeholders' input and actively engage with them to understand their expectations and concerns. We strive to maintain open lines of communication and address any feedback or inquiries in a timely and transparent manner.


At Giddy Goat Toys, we recognize that our commitment to ESG practices is an ongoing journey. We regularly review and improve our policies, procedures, and initiatives to ensure that we are making a positive impact on the environment, society, and governance. By integrating ESG principles into our business operations, we aim to contribute to a better and more sustainable future for our planet and generations to come.
