Sustainability Policy

Our Sustainability Policy will enable us to incorporate the company goals for sustainability.

To deliver this we will focus on the three key areas as follows:


  • Identifying areas of highest energy consumption and reducing consumption in these areas.
  • Ensuring all electrical resources are switched off, or to standby when not in use.
  • Ensuring all existing equipment is maintained and serviced regularly to ensure efficient operation.
  • Working with staff to identify resource saving practices, such as lowering heating or cooling temperatures.
  • Replacing older equipment with more energy efficient alternatives where appropriate. Reducing printing volumes and the amount of paper used.
  • Recycling printer cartridges.
  • Recycling glass, paper, metal and plastics where appropriate
  • Developing a water management programme.
  • Introducing an electronic invoicing system to reduce paper use.
  • Encouraging staff to reduce their environmental impacts in work, travelling to and from work and at home.


  • Ensuring compliance with relevant policies and legislation.
  • Building relationships with clients to maximise value, minimise costs and waste.
  • Ensuring complaints are dealt with promptly to maintain high levels of customer satisfaction.


  • Encouraging all employees to consider sustainability at home as well as in work.
  • Developing Diversity and Equal Opportunities policies.
  • Encouraging young local people into the trade by offering apprenticeships.
  • Developing staff potential through training.
  • Instigating and Health & Safety police
  • Ensuring all new legislation is incorporated in our documents.
