In order to manage our environmental footprint, we have implemented a ‘go green’ policy in our offices. Waste reduction, reduced resource consumption and energy efficiency are just some of the ways in which we are working towards an eco-friendly office.
While a full list of our green practices can be found in our Environmental Policy, here are some of the ways we are being more conscious:
We minimise the energy impact of travel: –
We encourage our workforce to travel to work by public transport and where possible, by walking;
We encourage the use of video conferencing and audio call technology to reduce travel for business meetings.
We conserve energy wherever possible: –
Auto-screen save (on monitors) after five minutes;
All non-critical equipment is switched off when not needed;
Low-energy electrical equipment is preferred for purchase.
Waste reduction and recycling
We reduce, re-use and recycle waste: –
We operate a near paperless office, with cloud-based software replacing the need for printing;
We recycle paper wherever possible;
When printing is required, automatic double side printing to all network printers;
Return toner cartridges to suppliers for re-use;
Re-use printed paper for internal work whenever possible;
Re-cycle old computers where possible;
We have eliminated paper and plastic cups in the office;
We don’t buy plastic water bottles;
We bring our own tupperware for lunchtime takeaways.’
