The Financial Services industry unfortunately generates significant amounts of paper. We try to minimise this by communicating electronically whenever possible and we store all of our correspondence digitally meaning that we do not have to print a file copy. Whatever paper is produced, whether internally or received from external sources is recycled (following secure destruction if appropriate).
We turn the lights, air conditioning and the computers off when we go home and encourage the drinking of tap water rather than bottled water. We all commute to the office using public transport. Our copy paper and where possible our envelopes use 100% recycled paper as is the cardboard used to produce our ‘Private Client Service’ brochure.
In the last 12 months we have recycled 735kg of paper and cardboard, 114kg of old computer equipment and 35kg of plastic and metal. We are very proud of that.
In short we do as many simple, easy and practical things as possible.
