Environmental Policy

Due to the nature of our business, our impact on the environment is relatively low, which was also recognised by our key stakeholders who, as part of our ESG materiality assessment have scored our environmental footprint as a low priority area for us to address.

We do recognise, however, that to build a more sustainable future, we all have a role to play and we are committed to reducing the environmental impact of our operations. Our key focus areas include:

  • Digitisation and hybrid delivery of core services including events and compliance visits, reducing carbon emissions from transportation.
  • Introduction of new printing facilities, allowing us to closely monitor paper usage and reduce accidental printing by requiring staff credentials to be used to release printing.
  • Energy Savings Opportunities Scheme assessment conducted to identify further opportunities to improve the energy efficiency of our offices and with plans to implement recommended measures over the next 18 months.
  • Move of our adviser magazine printing contract to an ISO 14001 accredited and Forest Stewardship Council (“FSC”) certified supplier.
  • Appointment of a new electronic waste disposal partner, helping us to redirect 100% of our e-waste from landfill.

We offer our staff several ways to reduce their individual footprint, including:

  • Reducing daily commute emissions through hybrid working available across all roles.
  • Within our new Flexible Benefits Platform our colleagues can benefit from:
    • A cycle to work scheme
    • An electric vehicle scheme (currently available to our Defaqto colleagues)
    • A carbon offsetting scheme
    • Access to ‘modern milkman’ services reducing plastic waste
    • A ‘too good to go’ scheme reducing food waste.
