Environmental policy

    Travel and meetings

Walk, cycle and/or use public transport to attend meetings, site visits etc, apart from in exceptional circumstances where the alternatives are impractical and/or cost prohibitive.


Include the full costs of more sustainable forms of transport in our financial proposals, rather than the least cost option which may involve travelling by car or air.  Where the only practical alternative is to fly, we will include costs for appropriate offsets.

Avoid physically travelling to meetings etc where alternatives are available and practical, such as using teleconferencing, video conferencing or web cams, and efficient timing of meetings to avoid multiple trips.  These options are also often more time efficient, while not sacrificing the benefits of regular contact with clients and partners.

To reduce the need to travel to meetings and elsewhere, and facilitate regular client contact, we will provide a web cam to clients free of charge for the duration of a project where appropriate.

Reduce the need for our staff to travel by supporting alternative working arrangements, including home working etc, and promote the use of public transport by locating our offices in accessible locations.

Use an emissions recording scheme for business travel to monitor our environmental impact.

    Purchase of equipment and other resources

Minimize our use of paper and other office consumables, for example by double-siding all paper used, and identifying opportunities to reduce waste.

As far as possible arrange for the reuse or recycling of office waste, including paper, computer supplies and redundant equipment.

Reduce the energy consumption of office equipment by purchasing energy efficient equipment for production.

Purchase electricity from a supplier committed to renewable energy.  Seek to maximise the proportion from renewable energy sources, whilst also supporting investment in new renewable energy schemes.

Ensure that timber furniture, and any other timber products, are recycled or from well-managed, sustainable sources and are Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified.

Purchase fair-trade and/or organic beverages.
