Accreditations

Green Dragon

We were first awarded the Green Dragon Accreditation in 2011 and have retained it since. The Green Dragon Environmental Standard is designed to promote good environmental management within organisations and to help manage their activities in a way that impacts positively upon the environment.

Achieving the Green Dragon Standard demonstrates our commitment to environmental management and each year we have to go through a rigorous audit to maintain this certification.

The benefits to the business of achieving the standard include: improved energy efficiency; reduction in our carbon footprint; and improved environmental sustainability.

In 2019, we achieved level 3 certification. To achieve and retain this, we have:

  • Made a commitment to Environmental Management.
  • Reviewed the environmental impact of our buildings and activities.
  • Set up a system to monitor our energy consumption, waste production and recycling activity.
  • Devised an action plan to make continual environmental improvements.
  • Compiled a register of environmental legislation to which we comply.
  • Created procedures to deal with emergency environmental incidents.
  • Collected data for total Greenhouse Gas Emissions.
  • Set environmental objectives and targets.
