They have two environmental champions in place responsible for driving their efforts to reduce their impact on the environment and have monitored this over the last 3 years by calculating their carbon footprint, in areas such as energy consumption, company owned vehicle usage and business travel. They managed to achieve a 20.64% reduction in the first year. In all their offices, they aim to recycle, re-use and reduce waste where possible, for example, removing some office waste bins and replacing with recycle point bins and most of their offices recycle toner cartridges, paper and card. They encourage all of their regional offices to work with local community charity partners and support them with local grants to do this. An example of this is that members of the Glasgow Office assisted the Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice in April in creating a garden space for their patients.
