Our place in the environment

As trusted advisors, we work hand in hand with businesses and people directly involved in looking after the land and the environment.   It is, therefore, very important to us that we also do our part.

Environmental issues are at the forefront of much of our activity and we try to engage with like-minded individuals and businesses that share our ethos.  To this end, we are determined to make sure that, whilst we carry out our work, any detrimental impact on our surroundings is kept to a minimum.

We became members of Investors in the Environment in 2013 – an organisation that supports businesses in their quest to become more eco-friendly.  In 2017, 2018 and 2019 we were presented with their ‘Green Star Award for Outstanding Achievement’.  In 2019 our operations director also achieved a green champion award.

Some of our initiatives:

  • installed LED lighting at our Spalding office to reduce our carbon footprint and energy spend;
  • encouraged staff to recycle wherever possible, with many initiatives providing support to local, national and international charities;
  • continued to push forward on the paperlite agenda – reviewing what we print, using electronic communication, developing our use of electronic signatures and our internet portal;
  • reduced our overall carbon footprint by 41.9% over the last 5 years;
  • replacing single use plastic wherever we can such as glass milk bottles and bamboo pens;
  • taken part in a number of schemes including Green Week, Zero Waste Week,  Stationery Amnesty and Cycle to Work.

We are extremely proud of our achievements so far, and delighted that our staff members are fully engaged with our determination to maintain a “green” culture.  It is they who frequently suggest new and innovative ways for us to work smarter to further improve our performance.  And what’s more, they initiate projects which often have a link to charity, so making the benefits two-fold.
