Sustainability Policy

 

Wallace Stone is committed to promoting sustainability. Concern for the environment and promoting a

broader sustainability agenda are integral to Wallace Stones professional activities and the

management of the organisation. We aim to follow and to promote good sustainability practice, to

reduce the environmental impacts of all our activities and to help our clients and partners to do

the same.

 

Principles

 

Our Sustainability Policy is based upon the following principles:

 

  • To comply with, and exceed where practicable, all applicable legislation, regulations and codes of practice.
  • To integrate sustainability considerations into all our business decisions.
  • To ensure that all staff are fully aware of our Sustainability Policy and are committed to implementing and improving it.
  • To minimise the impact on sustainability of all office and transportation activities.
  • To make clients and suppliers aware of our Sustainability Policy, and encourage them to adopt sound sustainable management practices.
  • To review, annually report, and to continually strive to improve our sustainability performance.

 

Practical steps

 

In order to put these principles into practice we will:

 

Commuting, Travel and meetings

  • Walk, cycle and/or use public transport to attend work and where appropriate meetings and/or site visits.
  • Avoid physically travelling to meetings etc where alternatives are available and practical, such as using teleconferencing, video conferencing or web cams, and efficient timing of meetings to avoid multiple trips. These options are also often more time efficient, while not sacrificing the benefits of regular contact with clients and partners.

 

Purchase of equipment and consumption of resources

  • Minimise our use of paper and other office consumables, for example by double-siding all paper used, and identifying opportunities to reduce waste.
  • As far as possible arrange for the reuse or recycling of office waste, including paper, computer supplies and redundant equipment.
  • Reduce the energy consumption of office equipment by purchasing energy efficient equipment and good housekeeping.
  • Seek to purchase electricity from a supplier committed to renewable energy.
  • Seek to maximise the proportion from renewable energy sources, whilst also supporting investment in new renewable energy schemes.
  • Ensure that timber furniture, and any other timber products, are recycled or from well-managed, sustainable sources and are Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified.
  • Purchase fair-trade and/or organic beverages.

 

Working practices

  • Undertake voluntary work with the local community and / or environmental organisations
