4. Objectives

Venesky-Brown have set the following objectives that will be annually reviewed;

  • To reduce the amount of paper that the organisation is using and become a paperless office.
  • Recycling – To reduce the amount of usage for items that are not recyclable. Encourage staff to use reusable bags and use their own take away coffee cups
  • Energy – To reduce the amount of energy being used in the office
  • Water Usage – To reduce the amount of times the dishwasher is used and the programme it is set to

5. Office Environment

Our day to day office environment is also geared towards being as environmentally friendly as possible. We try where possible to operate a paperless office, with cloud-based software replacing the need for printing. We naturally recycle as much as possible in the office and have dedicated recycling facilities on-site. We also actively encourage our staff to be more environmentally friendly and provide them with the resources needed, we provide free sustainable bags to all staff.

Venesky-Brown Recruitment Ltd encourages staff to cycle or walk to work where possible and to use public transport and if appropriate to car share. We are part of the cycle 2 work scheme and our pool cars are hybrid vehicles and staff are encouraged to use these for site visits.

The policy will be reviewed annually to ensure that it remains relevant.
