Using Electric cars
We as a company encourage electric and hybrid cars. Currently we have three Teslas, a fully electric Jaguar and a hybrid car. We are able to use these cars whenever we travel around the country, drastically reducing our environmental impact. We calculated that one of our cars travels on average 40,000 miles a year which if petrol would generate over 12 tonnes of Co2, but in an electric car equals 3.84 tonnes of Co2.
Recycling old equipment
Around 6 times a year we recycle all our hardware; PCs, servers, telephones and parts. This usually is a small mountain of heavy things, this hardware is then sent off to a sorting plant, where parts will be upcycled and used in other PCs or broken down and used as materials for manufacturing.
Making cuts were possible
We make sure all our equipment is low power so we can reduce the amount of power we consume as a company. Alongside this, we make an effort to ensure we are only using hot water, electric and heating we need. Our audits are also done remotely through Teams when possible.
