BITC Responsible Business Week – Staying Green
As we approach summer, we are reminded of the importance and preciousness of the environment around us. It can be hard to keep in mind the environmental consequences of our daily personal routines – taking an extra-long shower, forgetting to switch the lights off – but as a business, it is something we believe should be closely monitored and managed constantly.
For any Company, staying eco-friendly can be a challenge. Fortunately, at adi we know all our employees take environmental concerns as seriously as we do, which means we can work as a team to try and reduce consumption and conserve resources.
When we developed our corporate social responsibility plan for 2015, we decided that alongside fulfilling obligations such as environmental management system ISO 14001: 2004, we wanted to develop our own set of guidelines and goals to help us stay as environmentally mindful as possible. Below are our on-going key objectives:
• Minimise the impact of our business activity on the environment
• Reduce our carbon footprint
• Reduce business travel
• Reduce utility usage
• Reduce general waste
• Reduce paper consumption
• Ensure sustainable procurement is achieved wherever possible
Although staying green will always be something of an uphill battle when balanced with the needs of a vibrant and growing business, we are proud to be doing our part to conserve the planet’s resources.BACK TO ARTICLES
