It is our policy to:

  • Reduce our use of energy
  • Reduce our water consumption
  • Recycle as much waste material as possible
  • Limit our use of paper by printing on both sides when we cannot avoid using paper, or using emails to send out correspondence
  • Avoid unnecessary travel
  • Encourage employees to car share or use alternative methods of transport into work
  • Purchase environmentally friendly products where possible.

They have a large kitchen area and shower room facilities for staff members. They work between the hours of 9am – 5pm Monday to Friday and have another branch in a nearby city that they travel to twice a week for a meeting.

Their main business is providing accountancy and administration services to individuals, small businesses and some large companies. They use a lot of paper and ink for printers and photocopiers in order to provide prospective customers with quotes, and send out regular financial reports and other reports as requested. All of their reports follow a house style of font size 12, font style Calibri, centre alignment and arrow bullet points for lists. The majority of their work is computer based but they do keep a lot of hard copies of paperwork.
