Sustainable Business

Operating in a sustainable way is essential to our long-term future. We currently undertake the following:

  • We are members of CycleScheme which allows our employees to cycle to work and promotes a healthy lifestyle and respect for the environment.
  • Movement sensors have been installed in our offices to reduce our carbon footprint.
  • Complete overnight lighting shutdown to reduce waste energy consumption.
  • More than a quarter of our electricity supply is provided by renewable energy (This is 4 times the current UK national average).

Workplace

Our people are at the heart of our business. Developing the talent and skills of our employees helps us to serve our customers better.
