We have a duty to reduce the impacts and risks our activities can or do have on the environment, delivering positive outcomes aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Environmental Responsibility

We have a responsibility to ensure that both internally and externally we are environmentally aware, collectively as individuals and as a company.

We continually improve our business activities so they are less damaging to the environment by regularly monitoring, assessing and reviewing our working practices. We use suppliers who conform and maintain environmental, quality and health and safety accreditations for their industry. And where possible, we provide our customers with a choice of recycled, fair trade and eco-conscious products.
