We recognise our responsibilities to achieve good environmental practice and to continue to strive for improvement in areas of environmental impact. Our approach is to work through education, communication and direct action wherever possible.
We are constantly looking for new ways to improve our carbon footprint and have put various initiatives in place at head office in order to achieve this objective, for example, passive low-energy lighting throughout the whole building and the installation of a voltage optimisation unit, which ensures that the minimum voltage required is used at all times.
Cars available to certain employees as part of the Company's car scheme are currently subject to a CO2 restriction of 120g/km.
During the year, actions have been taken to further reduce our carbon consumption at head office, for example we have introduced mixed recycling in order to reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfill.
