The Zircon Green Policy

January 3rd, 2012 by Sarah Green Leave a reply »

At Zircon we are passionate about being ‘green’ and strongly believe that we have a responsibility to operate as a sustainable business. We have therefore implemented a new Green Policy which aims to communicate to our remote working associates the importance of being ‘green’ and demonstrate to our clients how we seek to minimise our impact upon the environment.

Zircon has set the following standards within the new Green Policy:

Travel
Zircon aims to eliminate carbon emissions, due to travelling, by:
• Sourcing Associates Locally to Our Clients
• Encouraging the Use of Public Transport
• Encouraging Remote Working where Possible

Waste Reduction
Zircon aims to reduce waste at source and some of the ways we do this is by:
• Using Green Methods of Advertising (For example, branded re-usable flash drives
• Only Printing Essential Documents
• Not Using Plastic Cups or Take-away Mugs

Recycling and Re-using
Zircon aims to recycle and re-use items wherever possible by:
• Reusing Waste Paper
• Double Sided Printing
• Using Recycling Bins for plastic, paper and card, glass and food
• Returning Used Ink Cartridges
• Visiting the Free Cycle Website to Advertise Items No Longer Needed http://www.freecycle.org/

Energy Usage
Zircon aims to minimise energy usage by encouraging certain behaviours and has reduced energy usage and carbon emissions by:
• Encouraging Employees to be “Green Aware
• Installing Solar Panels
• Insulating Head Office
• Using Energy Saving Light Bulbs

Zircon’s green policy is our promise to ensure that we continually strive to reduce the impact we have on the environment, not only as a business, but on an individual level as well.
