The environment

‘Reduce – reuse – recycle’ is a new way of working and helps us to minimise our impact on the environment and encourages more sustainable modes of travel.

  • We’ve made practices such as using centralised printing resources, recycling consumables, and ordering stationery and equipment from green sources ‘the norm’ in all of our offices
  • New software is now released on the web, eliminating the distribution, consumption and landfill of 18,000 - 24,000 CDs a year, and improves customer service with instant online access to new features and functionality 
  • We have a long relationship with the National Autistic Society and help them by turning used milk bottle tops into money

Our customers, suppliers and partners

As a business, we’re always looking to be fair, ethical and to be trusted by our customers. We ensure quality runs through everything we do, and in doing so, have built a customer retention rate our peers truly envy: 98% year on year.

Long-term relationships are also built with suppliers and partners who share our commitment to sustainability and fair trade prices:
