Environmental Policy


We’re committed to sustainability, through encouraging environmentally-aware behaviours among our team to investing in green energy through Opus Talent Solutions and JD Ross, our energy and renewables talent provider.

Our commitment is to:

• Continuously improve our environmental performance and integrate recognised environmental management best practice into our business operations

• Reduce our consumption of resources and improve the efficient use of those resources

• Measure and take action to reduce the carbon footprint of our business activities to meet our published objectives and targets

• Manage waste generated from our business operations according to the principles of reduction, reuse, and recycling

• Manage our business operations to prevent pollution

• Give due consideration to environmental issues and energy performance in the acquisition, design, refurbishment, location, and use of buildings

• Ensure environmental, including climate change, criteria are taken into account in the procurement of goods and services

• Comply, as a minimum, with all relevant environmental legislation, as well as other environmental requirements to which the firm subscribes

To meet our commitments we will:

• Provide oversight and review of environmental policies and performance, and allocate resources for their effective direction and implementation

• Review our environmental policy regularly, and set and monitor key objectives and targets for managing our environmental performance at least annually

• Communicate internally and externally our environmental policy and performance on a regular basis, and encourage feedback

• Communicate the importance of environmental issues to our people

• Work together with our people/ employees, service partners, suppliers, and landlords and their agents to promote improved environmental performance

• Promote appropriate consideration of sustainability and environmental issues in the services we provide to our clients

So, what does that mean on a day-to-day basis:

We don’t just talk the talk, we’re committed to proactively making changes that align with our values and approach to sustainability.


• We use recycled paper, and the amount bought is limited

• Paper and cardboard is recycled in each office

• We use ‘secure print’: a feature which enables print jobs to be held on a server which can only be released by the user, ensuring documents are not left unattended or discarded, thus reducing print waste

• We’ve gone plastic-free in each office – reusable water bottles have replaced plastic cups

• We use eco-friendly cleaning products, never bleach


• We offer flexible working – the ability to work from home greatly reduces business travel

• We use video conferencing – we’ve been using this for meetings and conferences since November 2019 , thus reducing international travel and emissions


• We have sensor lights in our offices that turn off after 20 minutes

• Hot water heaters have replaced kettles in our offices

• Monitors go to sleep after a set amount of time

Ongoing Commitments

• Continuing to reduce the impact of our offices on the environment

• Educating our people:

– Travel – encouraging carpooling and the Bike to Work scheme

– Inviting guest speakers to share initiatives and ideas with us and our teams

• Supporting our clients in actions they can take

• Setting science-based emission reduction targets and continuously reviewing them

This statement represents our general position on environmental issues, and the policies and practices we will apply in conducting our business.
