Environmental impact

We remain committed to doing business in a way that minimises our environmental impact. Whether it is reducing our direct impacts through our office energy consumption, or our indirect impacts within our supply chains, we work to manage our day-to-day business operations as efficiently and responsibly as possible.

By managing our environmental impacts, we can meet stakeholders’ expectations, meet legislation, and save our businesses money. We recognise the importance of using resources responsibly and prudently. As such, we are committed to keeping waste to a minimum and to reducing the amount of environmentally-damaging emissions we are responsible for, both directly and indirectly.

Our main environmental impacts are the energy we use to power our buildings; business travel; waste, in particular paper; and the CO2 emissions associated with all of these. We manage these impacts through our environmental management programme and regular reviews ensure we are dealing with the most material issues.
