Everyone has a stake in the future of our planet, and we're no different. And we know we have a responsibility to invest and commit to reducing our environmental impact continuously.
We work hard to ensure we’re recycling, reducing and offsetting our carbon footprint and we’re always looking at ways to take our ‘E’ journey to the next level. Here are just some of the things we’re doing to reduce our environmental impact.

From our old office furniture, work mobile phones and laptops to using recycled material in our office carpets, we try our best to recycle what we can.
Our last crisp packet recycling campaign was a hit (but highlighted the fact we eat a lot!).
None of our waste goes to landfill, and working with local Terracycle outlets helps with internal engagement giving our people knowledge of what and how we can recycle more.
We encourage our people to use sustainable transport wherever possible. This ranges from our cycle-to-work scheme (we have office shower rooms and bike storage facilities), EV pool cars and discounted rates for public transport.
In recent years we've reduced our paper usage by 59% and gas usage by 24% and we’re on track to be net-zero by 2030.
By analysing our carbon emissions across energy, resources and travel usage, we are able to offset our carbon footprint. The offset calculation has allowed us to give back to Tyne Rivers Trust, Scotswood Community Garden and donate to beach clean projects.
We're ISO14001:2015 Environmental Management System (EMS) accredited and our cross-firm Green Team work on projects focused on reducing our impact on the environment each year.
