Transport and Travel
We encourage all team members to walk, cycle or use public or shared transport to the workplace. Our target is less than 25% single occupation car usage.
Business travel is kept only to journeys, which are considered essential by the leadership team. Skype, conference calls, messenger are the preferred methods for client and supplier communications.
Where business travel is essential, public transport such as rail travel is the first consideration over private car/air travel.
Leadership team members are encouraged to work remotely where practical, to avoid un-necessary travel and are provided with equipment and remote access to systems to enable this.
Office & Warehouse Equipment
Minimise use of paper and office consumables. All paper is used double sided, internals systems encourage file sharing on line reducing the requirement to print documentation. Client quotes, presentations, contracts and invoicing are transmitted digitally reducing the requirement to print hard copies, limiting use of print cartridges and paper.
Office and warehouse waste is recycled, with a card recycling facility kept permanently on site and collected weekly.
Purchasing guidelines for office and warehouse equipment are defined as pre-owned/refurbished equipment wherever practical. Where new timber based furniture is the only option these must be sourced from a FSC certified supply.
On replacing equipment and lighting within office or workshop, low energy products will be given preference.
Only electrically powered vehicles will operate within the warehouse (i.e. forklift trucks)
