Being More Environmentally Friendly

Do you want to be more environmentally friendly? We did and that's in 2020 we began to making changes in the business from the top down.

Being more environmentally friendly does not take a lot, for example, we started with small changes like installing LED light bulbs and switching our bottled soap for bars. After that, we’ve made bigger investments into reducing our carbon footprint, for instance, moving our company car fleet to fully electric.

Save Money & Energy with LED Lights

Being more environmentally friendly isn’t all about spending money, you can in fact save money! On average, lighting makes up 15% of UK household electricity consumption; save money by switching to LED lighting at home or in the office. LED light bulbs will help lower your electricity bills and carbon dioxide emissions.

Switch from Bottles to Bars of Soap

Plastic waste is one of the biggest issues facing our world today. One of the easiest steps to being more environmentally friendly is replacing liquid soap with bars. Bars of soap last 6x longer than liquid and use 30% less water when washing your hands. Make the switch today!

Recycling with TerraCycle

Recycling is one of the easiest methods of being more environmentally friendly; to help with this and further reduce our plastic waste we’ve introduced TerraCycle Zero Waste boxes. We want to recycle more and TerraCycle is committed to eliminating the idea of waste by recycling the “non-recyclable”. They are able to divert millions of pounds of waste from landfills and incinerators each month.

Electric Cars

In 2020 Sicon, our sister company, made the decision to move their company car fleet over to electric. As of December 2021 over 50% of the fleet is fully electric and a further 22% hybrid.

Investing in Solar Panels

5 years ago Sicon moved into our current Head Office, St Peter’s House, this move led to the invest in 60 solar panels to generate a good portion of the electricity. Since acquiring the building next door, St Francis House, we have invested in another 70 solar panels, taking our total to 130 across our offices. These now generate almost all our electricity in our Head Office.
