ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY

VERVATE Ltd is committed to minimising the impact of its activities on the environment.

This strategy merely outlines our approach and underpins our ethos as a company.  It is not merely a paperwork exercise.  We regularly review this document and seek to make decisions with these points in full consideration.

The key points of our strategy to achieve this are:

Minimise waste by evaluating operations and ensuring they are as efficient as possible. Regular review of this policy and its practical implications along with a company audit.

Not printing out paperwork unnecessarily

Minimise toxic emissions through the selection and use of its fleet and the source of its power requirement. Promote unleaded petrol cars as a minimum

Use public transport where possible and use a Green Travel Plan if appropriate

Car share where possible

Try to position jobs together geographically

Ensuring sleep mode activated on all equipment

Actively promote recycling both internally and amongst its customers and suppliers. Put a ‘Please do not print out’ message on all Agreements and emails etc.

Recycling ink cartridges

Using recycled paper

Source and promote a product range to minimise the environmental impact of both production and distribution. Transferring images via cloud solutions a minimum of 90% of the time
