We don’t just talk the talk, we’re committed to proactively making changes that align with our values and approach to sustainability. We work with a lot of start-up companies, many of which don’t have internal HR or finance departments overseeing their environmental policies. We offer this function as an additional client service, and are committed to helping as many businesses as possible make better decisions around their approach to sustainability. These are some examples of actions we’ve taken, which we can help you implement into your business, too...
We use recycled paper, and the amount bought is limited
Paper and cardboard is recycled in each office
We use ‘secure print’: a feature which enables print jobs to be held on a server which can only be released by the user, ensuring documents are not left unattended or discarded, thus reducing print waste
We’ve gone plastic-free in each office – reusable water bottles have replaced plastic cups
We use eco-friendly cleaning products, never bleach
We offer flexible working – the ability to work from home greatly reduces business travel
We use video conferencing – we’ve been using this for meetings and conferences since November 2019 , thus reducing international travel and emissions
