Waring Stewart Associates will use policies and procedures that will ensure the conservation of natural resources while minimising any adverse environmental impact from its operations, including, but not limited to, energy usage, waste reduction and recycling.

We aim to review our environmental policies and procedures regularly to improve our performance and quality.

All partner organisations and key suppliers are made aware of this policy and their responsibilities for environmental issues.

The Consultancy operates an energy conservation policy to ensure that

  • • All electricity used in our offices comes from solar, wind, or rain through our energy partner “Good Energy”
  • • Our web hosting servers are housed in a “green” hosting centre in York, where they are cooled with fresh Yorkshire air!
  • • Energy efficiency in manufacture and operation is paramount when purchasing new equipment
  • • All non-critical equipment is switched off when not needed.

We will endeavour to perform business electronically, to reduce paper usage

We will always seek to purchase products that are environmentally friendly, re-usable, recyclable and that have a minimum negative impact on the environment.

Whenever possible, we re-use incoming packaging materials, walk or cycle to commute within a three mile radius of our offices, and aim to either recycle or compost 80% of our waste.

This policy statement is on display at our company premises and will be made available to the public via our website www.waringstewartassociates.co.uk
