Sustainable working policy
Where face-face meetings are necessary, travel to and from them is by public transport. The presumption is against travelling at peak times.
Materials, recycling and waste
Paper waste is minimised by making sure documents are stored and processed electronically, as far as is possible. Where the use of paper is unavoidable, it is from sustainable sources. All paper that is used on one-side only is re-used for drafts and notes. All paper waste is recycled. Auk attempts to source other materials from sustainable sources.
Suppliers and services
Where appropriate, all business materials and services are sourced from local suppliers. We aim to assist our clients to use products and services in an environmentally-sensitive way.
Premises and energy
Home-working is the preferred option of Auk. Lighting is by low-energy bulbs. Heating is by energy-efficient systems, including jumpers and warm socks. All electrical equipment is turned off when not in use.
