We operate as close to a paperless office as possible! We use electronic documents wherever possible and only print a hard copy if essential. Our paper is 100% recycled.
Our computer system is very efficient and uses a minimum amount of energy. We purchase our electricity from a renewable energy supplier and at the end of every day, we switch off at the plug.
