We actively work to reduce the environmental impact of our business and continually improving the sustainability of our operations.

Our offices are highly rated on the BREEAM scale, we work alongside clients to implement paper-light working practices, and we support colleagues to choose low-carbon travel options for both commuting and business trips – actions which underpin our ISO 14001 accreditation for Environmental Management.

We make every effort to limit the environmental impact of our business and we have put a range of initiatives in place to achieve this, such as providing extensive recycling facilities, implementing paper-light working procedures, and encouraging the use of walking, cycling, and public transport for both commuting and business trips.


Scrutinising our supply chain

We scrutinise our supply chain with the aim of sourcing locally and supporting sustainable businesses as far as possible. We use a bicycle courier for all local deliveries, which account for around 90% of our total.  In addition, our contract taxi firm was the first Carbon Neutral-certified company in Scotland, which means that our taxi journeys leave no net carbon footprint.

Wherever practicable, we try to operate regular scheduled deliveries to the office (e.g. for stationery supplies, off-site archiving uplifts/retrievals etc.) to minimise our indirect carbon footprint caused by those visits.

Values Environment

Encouraging environmentally-friendly travel

Where intra-office meetings are required but in-person collaboration is not essential, we encourage the use of technology, in particular Microsoft Teams, avoiding the need for our people to travel. Almost all travel between our Edinburgh and Glasgow offices is done by train, and we avoid taking taxis for short journeys whenever practicable. 

To facilitate environmentally friendly commuting by our staff, we provide lockers and shower cubicles in our offices. A significant proportion of our people travel to work by cycling or walking, and we participate in the Government-sponsored "Cycle to Work" scheme. We also offer our staff interest-free loans for the purchase of season tickets for public transport.


Efficient and sustainable office spaces

Our Edinburgh office at Quartermile is located in an extremely energy efficient building, which has a rating of “Very Good” on the BREEAM scale. This is the second-highest rating on the UK’s most popular measure for assessing a building’s “greenness”.

Within our offices, we work to recycle as much as possible, with a focus on maintaining client confidentiality at all times. We adopt a comprehensive paper-light protocol in our day-to-day operations, and all of our work is underpinned by our ISO 27001 Information Security certification.
