Fighting climate change

Fighting climate change

Work Travel - reduces the overall requirement by providing video conferencing capabilities. Heating - In order to minimise the use of fossil fuels by the office heating systems, heating is automated through BMS. Lighting - ensure lights are switched off where not in use. This is achieved by automation in all BCN buildings. We install lighting with the maximum possible efficiency on all new installations. Paper Waste - We reduce the use of paper and where it is used we recycle all office paper, including photocopy paper, etc. Where paper and/or its contents is considered ‘Unrestricted’ paper is placed in recycling bins. Sensitive information is shredded and recycled in a secure manner. Plastic Waste - We collect plastic containers used in the office environment and recycle them regularly using third party recycling services. We avoid single use plastics. Packaging - We deal with significant volumes of cardboard packaging. All cardboard waste must be flat packed and stored in the appropriate location for recycling. Monitoring Supply Chain We work with world-class reputable suppliers who lead the way in environmental and social practices. All suppliers are carefully chosen to help us achieve more sustainable outcomes through their approach to sustainability issues. This, in turn, enables our customers to feel comfortable that their own environmental policies are being adhered to when they use BCN as a supplier. We are committed to working with our suppliers to understand and mitigate negative sustainability impacts and to enhance the positives. We expect our world-class suppliers to lead the way in environmental and social practices. By only purchasing equipment from carefully chosen suppliers we are able to achieve more sustainable outcomes through their approach and activity to sustainability issues. This, in turn, will enable our customers to feel comfortable that their environmental policies are being adhered to.
