We aim to minimise and offset our impact on the environment. We know our impact on the environment is negative; however, we intend to reverse this over time with improved sourcing, consumption and behaviour policies.
Carbon Offsetting &Tree Planting
We offset our estimated carbon dioxide output with Ecologi. As part of this, we are also engaged in an ongoing tree-planting commitment.
We only source FSC accredited paper and card products wherever possible. We believe that products from properly managed forests help maintain levels of forestry and natural carbon capture.
Our electricity is 100% renewable, our gas is 10% renewable and 100% carbon neutral.
We are intentionally located in the centre of town to minimise the travel for our employees. We are in close proximity to public transport (bus and rail) and primary road links. Most employees live within five miles of our workplace.
Our paper and card waste is directly recycled. It is noted that we could better reduce waste that is not directly recycled. We are currently reviewing better suppliers for waste processing. As a largely digital business, our use of packing materials is almost zero.
We actively pursue a policy of purchasing pre-used and refurbished technology. This reduces our capital costs whilst significantly extending the life of machines.
Cycle to Work Scheme
Review the viability of this and implement if possible.
Waste & Packaging
Reduce current levels of staff waste (packaging). Recycle more pre-waste.
Carbon Offsetting & Tree Planting
Increase levels of carbon offsetting to become a net-positive influence on carbon emissions and reforestation.
Constant Review of Energy and Supply Consumption
Where can we reduce our use of.. electricity, fuel, packaging, finite materials (including technology and associated precious elements)?
