We aim to:
- reduce the amount and carbon intensity of the energy we use
- reduce the environmental impact of our business travel
- operate in a resource-efficient way, particularly regarding use of paper and water
- minimise the environmental impact of the waste we produce through avoidance, reduction, re-use and recycling.
We continue to invest in video-conferencing and encourage employees to seek alternative options or more sustainable modes - such as rail or car-sharing to reduce business travel.
We have introduced various digital programmes to reduce the amount of paper we use; including greatly increased digital communications with customers. Our improved in-house printing technology and employee engagement activities have also helped reduce paper use.
We are committed to reducing waste of all kinds and separating waste for recycling to avoid it going to landfill. We have a company-wide scheme to separate different kinds of waste, prior to collection, to maximise recycling. We also use various waste contractors around the UK to maximise post-collection separation and recycling.
