Sustainability

Find out how we are working to become a more sustainable organisation.

Our Environmental Management System is accredited to ISO14001 standard which demonstrates our commitment and responsibility to the environment. As part of our corporate responsibility agenda, we aim to manage and reduce our impact on the environment.

We look to safeguard resources and reduce our costs through finding efficiencies that help the environment and deliver value for money. These include smarter use of energy, paper and water and we encourage our people to follow the waste hierarchy..

Currently around 85% of all our waste is recycled or composted. All other waste is processed at an energy recovery site in line with our zero-waste to landfill policy.

We participate in a range of schemes, such as the government-led CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme and sustainability reporting that adheres to HM Treasury guidance as well as environmental awareness days and staff education of environmental issues.  

In other related work, we’re looking at our practices and policies such as procurement and travel to ensure we are being as efficient and environmentally friendly as we can be.

We are committed to reducing our carbon footprint, making sure our practices are sustainable and providing value for money.

Our Environmental Policy Statement sets out our commitment and aspirations.
