Get Drastic With Plastic

September 4th, 2018 by Alison McKinney | No Responses

Very much in the news these days is the devastating effect that plastic has on our precious wildlife if left to blow and float around our landscapes.

Most of us have seen video footage of animals and birds caught up in something made of plastic – seals trapped in a fishing net, birds with plastic bottle tops wedged onto their beaks, turtles with plastic straws jammed up their nostrils, deer with their heads caught up in discarded plastic garden furniture. And we know it doesn’t end there and that there are plenty more incidents of creatures being ensnared in plastic, and even, sadly, dying from such a predicament.

Whilst there may be no quick fix to this worldwide problem, there are still many campaigns afoot to try and reduce the amount of plastic used, both at home in our day to day lives as well as in industry, especially supermarkets, who are turning to providing paper bags and allowing people to bring … read more »

Carbon neutral policy launched

March 14th, 2011 by Jaime Johnson | No Responses

Having undertaken a commitment to reduce our impact on the climate we have developed a carbon management strategy for going carbon neutral.

The strategy highlights our intention to audit our carbon footprint annually and sets out a number of actions which we intend to implement and review our progress against. The aim being to work to reduce our impact in the long term and hopefully in doing so, generate some cost savings.

Highlighted actions

  • In the short term buy emission reduction to enable us to make real emission reductions now and to help us to price the cost of carbon into our budgets.
  • Raise staff awareness by encouraging them to undertake online training modules with the Carbon Trust www.carbontrust.co.uk.
  • We already conduct much of our communications online and propose continue to do so to reduce paper usage and waste.
  • For necessary trips, we will aim where possible to use public transport, try to plan more than one meeting in … read more »
  • Carbon neutral – going green…

    March 1st, 2011 by Jaime Johnson | No Responses

    Its not just out logo that’s green! We aim to be a carbon neutral and environmentally friendly company. We are a paperless office,  and wherever possible utilise technology (conference calling and online meetings) to reduce our need for travel. We are now planning to formalise our commitment to going green by considering what climate change might mean for us, incorporating an energy assessment into our project planning, and also looking at specific action we can take to address the impact our organisation may have on the environment, such as introducing an energy saving policy for the office.

    Our estimated carbon footprint is 4.64 tCO2e/yr. We hope to offset this and are looking at the best way to become carbon neutral!
