We are proud to be an environmentally responsible company. Sustainability is at the heart of our company, instilled in our people and promoted in our brand. We therefore treat this policy as our company policy, for us they are one and the same.
We promote the reduction and prevention of poverty and inequality.
We raise awareness of issues relating to gender inequality, sustainable planet, fair and ethical business practices in our marketing and social media campaigns.
We recognise that organisations should work in the interests people and planet, and not simply to maximise financial returns.
We encourage the payment of fair prices that allow fair rewards to be paid.
We encourage best practices in conditions of employment.
We will aim to purchase from suppliers who demonstrate openness, integrity and transparency in their business and supply chain operations. However, we cannot be held responsible or accountable legally for 3rd party actions.
The issue of environmental ‘footprint’ is important particularly in regard to carbon emissions and climate change. As well as sea, road and air transport, processes such as drying, freezing and chilling contribute to the problem. Whilst acknowledging that South/North trade in products and commodities inevitably may contribute to environmental impact, our aim is to have a balanced impact believe that the world is our country and we work to provide the most sustainable results for the project in hand.
Assess and monitor our energy usage and waste output.
Actively reduce our waste through waste reduction policies, recycle and re-use as much as possible and promote creative thinking amongst staff about this process.
Embrace new and more efficient technologies to reduce energy consumption by providing better performance per watt or automated ‘power down when not in use’ policies.
Use cloud technologies as a priority which will reduce our carbon footprint.
Educate staff, clients and suppliers on new methods and policies to reduce energy and waste generation.
Purchase products and services from third party suppliers that share similar environmental positioning goals as our own.
Be transparent in our findings, celebrate our environmental tribulations as much as our triumphs so that we and others can learn from our mistakes.
Use our skills in marketing and communication to actively promote environmental sustainability and raise awareness to climate change in our region and worldwide.
