Environmental Policy

We are conscious of the need to preserve resources, minimize waste and reduce the impact on the environment.

The latest PC equipment with power-saving facilities is specified, in order to reduce power consumption.

Surplus IT equipment, such as old PCs or peripherals, is donated to suitable “homes” if it may help with training or education. Obsolete items are recycled in accordance with prevailing legislation, in order to minimize landfill waste and the build-up of heavy metals. Any waste classed as hazardous (e.g. old batteries) will be carefully disposed of at proper recycling facilities.

Toner and ink jet cartridges are recycled to support a cleaner environment.

Waste paper, where not confidential, is also recycled as is cardboard and packaging. Wherever possible, waste is separated out into its constituent parts for recycling
