Litter Bins 

We have removed litter bins from under desks

We auction (for employee nominated Charity) old electrical equipment

Used Batteries 

Provide receptacles to collect used batteries and waste electricals / electronics

Coffee Cups 

Staff are provided with reusable coffee cups, which they can also use while out and about

Coffee-Pod  Crisp-Packet 

Signed up to Terracycle and Nespresso Recycling Programmes, meaning we can offer staff recycling routes for empty crisp packets and used coffee pods

 Carbon management

Commute 

Annually we conduct an audit of employee commuting habits to measure our carbon footprint and offset it. Employees car share, walk, cycle and work from home

Carbon Fleet 

Our objective is to have a fleet of company vehicles with CO₂ below 100g/km. Good progress towards this is being made as vehicle technology improves

Carbon management 

Purchase carbon offsets to balance out our carbon footprint. The projects we have invested in can be found here and here. More information about the shipping project can be found here

Webinars
