Environmental Policy

It’s more than just good business sense, though. Our environmental management policies enable us to:

  • meet our own statutory obligations, as well as our clients’ expectations 
  • share our expertise with our suppliers – to help them do better
  • manage environmental risk
  • maintain our reputation.

What else do we do?

  • we minimise resource use at all our sites – especially energy
  • we manage waste  and we recycle as much as we can 
  • we work collaboratively with other tenants in multi-occupancy buildings
  • we’re reducing our carbon footprint as much as we can, by cutting business travel and energy consumption (we hold one of the government approved Carbon Saver Gold Awards)
  • we’re installing conference call facilities wherever we can to drive down travel even further
  • we use technology – such as smart meters – where we can, to drive down consumption even further
  • we run a rolling programme of server consolidation – data centres are very power hungry
  • we encourage our people to use public transport where it’s possible and we run a cycle to work scheme
  • our annual awareness campaign week ‘Going Green’ encourages employees to consider their environmental impact at home too, with promotional activities, information and energy-saving ideas.
