How we work 'green'
We are a 21st Century operation therefore believe that we can help protect the environment and ensure our carbon footprint is either non-existent or neutral. Therefore we have the following things in place to help keep Lighthouse IG green. We are always looking for more ways to reduce our carbon footprint further so for any suggestions that you might have that work please do get in touch!
We use Cloud-Tree Ltd for our IT hosting and Maintenance. They are a UK based local company that is run entirely on renewable energy and shares our commitment to green ways of working. You can find out more information on them at www.cloud-tree.co.uk.
Our registered office is Tiptree but our ‘working office’ is based in Chelmsford where we take full advantage of Chelmsford City Council’s recycling and green waste programme. Any materials used for the benefit of Lighthouse IG are recycled accordingly, paper copies of documents are avoided where we can and any copies are securely destroyed or recylced if we can. The Essex Office has recently been refreshed to include energy efficient light bulbs and other energy saving measures.
Where we can we prefer to work remotely with our clients using the various tools available via Office 365. However, where this is just not possible or practical then we will always seek to travel via the most efficient and cost effective route possible favouring public transport. Car travel for business purposes is avoided as much as possible but may be unavoidable based on where you are based however the vehicles we use are modern and energy efficient.
Where we can we look to work with partners that share our Green approach. Where this is not possible, we will look to educate and influence where we can.
