Green Mark Level 2 Accreditation achieved!

We’re so pleased to have achieved our Level 2 Accreditation of the Green Mark, an internationally recognised environmental accreditation for companies that are conducting business to recognised environmental standards.
 
To attain level 2 we’ve had to develop a comprehensive action plan which included:

  • Introducing quarterly communications to staff on our local environmental activity
  • Encouraging reduced water use in kitchen and toilet areas around our office buildings
  • Reducing our carbon footprint – with the electricity provider for our Eastbourne and Brighton offices now using 100% renewable energy
  • Increasing our recycling – with dry mixed recycling waste collections across our Eastbourne, Hailsham and Brighton offices.
  • Engaging with suppliers about their green credentials

 Lisa Williams, “Green Champion” within the firm, says: “Green Mark is an external, independent assessment of our environmental performance as a business. The whole process and the evidence we have to provide brings real credibility to our environmental claims. It’s an exciting journey and is great to see the whole team getting behind what we’re doing.”
 
“The Green Mark process and accreditation has brought tangible benefits to the firm, helping us to reduce operating costs, ensure we’re compliant with current legislation and involve the team. We’ll be working towards Level 3 throughout 2021”, concludes Lisa.
