Doing business responsibly

We are dedicated to minimising the environmental impact of our business. As part of our congoing commitment to this, we concentrate on the five areas where our business has the greatest impact upon our environmental: transport, waste, paper, water and energy. Below are some of the ways in which we are reducing our environmental impact.



Staff are encouraged to car share where possible or use public transport. Videocon and telephone conferencing facilities are available across the firm.



Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. Each office recycles paper and card, toners, light bulbs, batteries, cans, plastic and glass. Staff reuse old stationery and furniture where possible.



We use 100% recycled paper for printing, copying and letters. Marketing materials are printed on 100% recyclable paper approved by the FSC commission.



Water Hippos have been installed across the firm which save one litre of water per toilet flush. Regular checks are done across each office to monitor for leaks.



We switch off, turn down during lunch breaks or extended time away from desks. All equipment is turned off at the end of the day. Office temperatures are regulated and reduced outside of working hours.
