WHAT WE'RE DOING ABOUT IT

Our goal is to practice sustainability and to be as eco-friendly as possible.

We commit to only printing when absolutely necessary and prioritise the use of digital documents internally and with our clients.

We have the ambition of moving to a fully cloud-supported IT infrastructure in the near future and will do all in our power to keep to this commitment.

We will look at quantifying our carbon footprint and identifying the potential ways that we can reduce this or, where not possible, offset it.

We have implemented a ‘hot desking’ approach in our office, removing the need for constant connection to main line electricity with desktop computers.

We conduct periodic exercise challenges to encourage our employees to walk more and drive less.

We have flexible working hours so that our employees have the option of using public transport, and other forms of more environmentally friendly transport methods, when commuting into work.

Our employee pension scheme is held with Standard Life, a company that has embedded principles of responsible investment, and takes Environmental factors into consideration when designing their investment solutions.

All our employees’ email signatures include a line to promote consciousness around the damage that paper production has on the environment; “Please consider the environment before printing this email”.

WHAT WE'VE ALREADY DONE

About 41% of all websites worldwide are operated with WordPress, and internet operations already account for almost 10% of global energy consumption. We optimise our client WordPress websites where possible and have monthly reviews of their plugins to ensure that we are not wasting energy.

Our website runs on sustainable energy, is cleaner than 65% of websites tested with www.websitecarbon.com, and we are doing all we can in optimising this further. Our website emits the amount of carbon that 4 trees absorb in a year. We commit to planting at least 4 trees every year to offset the emissions of our website.

In December 2021, we planted 250 trees with Ecologi to help offset our carbon footprint moving forward. We have also offset 5 tonnes of carbon by funding two amazing sustainability projects; Preserving the Amazonian rainforest in Brazil, and an exciting Wind power generation project in Bac Lieu Province, Vietnam!

WHAT YOU CAN DO

Proactively learn more about how your work affects the environment, and try to change your existing processes to more eco-friendly ones.

Always make the effort, and never give up! It’s a process that we all need to go through, and we believe that everyone should be doing their best.

Stay green!
