They monitor the organisation’s impact on the environment by Facilities Management and outcomes are fed back to staff regularly, calculate their carbon footprint and ensure everyone adheres to the Environment Policy Statement. Paper is turned into scrap books and recycled where possible. Batteries, cartridges, food waste and plastic are recycled. Amnesty International UK have an Environment Policy statement, mark Environment Day, they offer season ticket loans, bike loans, have bike sheds in the car park and there are showers in the building. Staff need to have Directors’ permission if they need to travel by air. They use video conferencing facilities, source local suppliers and consolidate suppliers to reduce deliveries. They started to measure their environmental impact last year and they will use the GRI (Global Reporting Initiative), a sustainability reporting framework, as one of the reporting frameworks for their report. Amnesty International UK is pleased to be a part of the community and they are looking to develop work placements for local schools.
