Our environmental goals
As the voice of the smart meter rollout, we believe it is vital to consider our environmental impact as an organisation. We have a robust environmental management system which reflects our commitment to maximise our environmental sustainability and minimise our carbon footprint.
Implement means to reduce our energy consumption.
We use low-energy LED and motion sensor lighting, boiler taps in our kitchens, and laptops instead of desktop computers.
Reduce the amount of waste we produce.
We recycle over 80% of the rubbish in our office (including food waste!) and aim to increase our recycling rate by 2% year on year.
Encourage our team to reduce their own environmental impact.
We offer cycle-to-work and flexible working schemes as well as environmental awareness campaigns across our organisation.
Engage with our office suppliers.
We deal with many suppliers to keep our office running and require them to comply with the environmental terms of our code of business conduct.
The Carbon Trust
For the 2016/17 period, we are proud to have had our emissions data from energy consumption and waste generation verified by the Carbon Trust for our London office.
We hope to build on this for 2017/18 and achieve Carbon Trust Certification.
Our carbon footprint for 2016/17 has been measured by the Carbon Trust at 262.3 tCO2e.
