“We are committed to reducing our carbon footprint”
“Staff are encouraged to car share”
As a professional services provider operating across the entirety of the East Yorkshire and Northern Lincolnshire area and, on occasion, wider afield we try very hard to maintain our position as a leading firm of Chartered Surveyors and Commercial Property Consultants.
Our industry leadership carries an ethical responsibility to all stakeholders and we fully recognise that our business activities have an impact, both directly and indirectly, on the environment, our clients, our suppliers, our people and the wider community.
Therefore, it is our policy to observe both the letter and the spirit of the law with regard to environmental legislation and if we become aware of any known environmental or health hazards we will respond in such a way that they are remedied as soon as possible.
We are committed to reducing our carbon footprint. Our offices are located in Hull City Centre and Grimsby town centre enabling staff to walk to appointments within the central business district areas and the main retail parades. Our central office locations are such that members of staff who do not need a car for work are encouraged to use public transport or to cycle.
When visits to properties require the use of a car, staff are encouraged to arrange visits to different properties in a consecutive way so as to reduce the need for unnecessary additional journeys. Throughout the working day staff are encouraged to car share wherever possible.
The firm encourages and promotes recycling. Where such facilities exist the firm utilises local authority operated recycling schemes. Where they do not exist the firm makes an effort to take recyclable waste to a dedicated recycling facility.
Communication with clients and customers is primarily by e-mail and a fully computerised storage facility negates the need for unnecessary printing of documentation, letters, etc.
We strongly believe that the environmental future of the planet is everyone’s responsibility and by following these principles we are contributing in our small way.
