Gibson Lamb is committed to reducing our environmental impact.
Our awareness of climate change is increasing and based on the number of our clients who are looking for responsible investment options, it’s a position shared by many of those we work with.
We want to ensure our business is as responsible as possible and so, with a mindset of reuse and recycle at the forefront, we have taken the following steps towards sustainability:
- In our previous office we selected renewable energy sources through providers like Good Energy but in our current location the landlord has control over the energy tariff for the building. In this situation we have committed to offsetting our carbon footprint.
- We log our energy usage where possible and make assumptions where necessary – for instance the air conditioning and lighting in our office. We record the miles driven each year and have the emission details of Dave’s car.
- We use this information to estimate our carbon footprint and then invest with reputable firms to offset it. This is done through planting trees or installing solar panels, both in the UK and abroad.
- All of our brochures, branded materials and the paper we print on are made from recycled and recyclable materials.
For more detail on the steps we have taken on our sustainability journey, take a look at the timeline of changes we have made over the last 23 years.
This is not just a check-box exercise for us, we are committed to a sustainable approach and so if you have any suggestions for further steps we can take please do share them with us.
