Environmental Policy

The Business Connection cares about the environment and are committed to continuous improvement to reduce, re-use, recycle and create sustainable solutions.

Transport

We minimise the impact of travel: –

  • We encourage our workforce to travel to work by public transport, car-share, bicycle, or by walking;
  • Wherever possible, public transport is used to attend meetings.

Energy

We conserve energy wherever possible: –

  • Turn off appliances when not in use; Use rechargeable batteries for all mobile appliances.

Waste minimisation and recycling

We reduce, re-use and recycle waste: –

  • Recycle waste – paper, cardboard, plastics, glass, tin and aluminium;
  • Return toner cartridges to suppliers for re-use and support charity toner appeals;
  • Reduce printing and paper waste through monitoring systems;
  • Re-use printed paper for internal work;
  • Minimise paper use by storing information digitally rather than as paper files;
  • Use 100% recycled paper for printing and stationery products where possible;
  • We have a “minimal replacement strategy” whereby we extend the life of all computers, re-using old machines where possible or stripping them for spares.

General

We also: –

  • Use environmentally friendly cleaning products;
  • Ensure that all employees know and understand the policy and what is expected of them;
  • Comply with environmental legislation, regulations and government guidance;
  • Constantly seek to improve our environmental performance through monitoring systems and policy reviews.
