How we’re reducing the environmental impact of our business.
We are acting now for tomorrow by reducing the environmental impact of our business through our people's actions, energy efficiency and on-site renewable electricity generation.
Find out more in our 2019 Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) data sheet.
In 2019 we completed the installation of an innovative solar car port at one of our UK offices – Norwich Horizon. From April until the end of October, 89% of the daytime electricity demand for the office was covered by the solar carport, with the rest coming from renewably sourced energy via the national grid. Our award-winning Smart Building Management approach in Ireland has also reduced electricity use by 3% and gas use by 25% from May to December 2019.
In addition, having acknowledged the growing numbers of our customers, colleagues and partners speaking up about the issue of plastics, our workplaces are now free of single-use plastic containers in all our markets bar one, which has a roadmap to do so in 2020.
