We’ve been posting our support for COP26 and thought that now is the time for us to step up and share what we’re doing as a company to help in the fight against global warming.
We can all do our bit, and we believe that every little however small when combined, will make the difference.
As an SME we may not have the power of the large corporations, but what we’ve done shows our willingness to do what it takes to help.
We started our journey by developing an environmental policy which clearly laid down the objectives to reduce our carbon footprint. In doing this it helped to bring everyone on board both internally and where possible, externally by also involving our suppliers.
On a day to day level, we switched energy suppliers to one that only provides renewable energy, we ensure that all our packaging is made from recycled materials and can be recycled again and we only use office supplies sourced from sustainable or recycled materials. On a broader level, we are working towards our company pension contributions being invested in ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) funds, moving towards EV only and posting regular information to encourage our team and our contacts to shop local and consider at least one plant based meal a week.
We constantly review our environmental policy and procedures to adapt to any new initiatives and technologies that will help us bring our carbon footprint down.
