MAST ICT is committed to minimising the impact of our activities on the environment. We shall therefore conduct our operations in a way which minimises our consumption of natural resources and manages waste through responsible disposal and the reuse and recycling of materials. We will aim to exceed, but definitely meet, all of the environmental legislation that relates to the Company.

Within our operations we will adopt a ‘reduce, re-use, re cycle’ approach.

By way of an example we aim to:

  • purchase environmentally friendly materials when appropriate
  • encourage our clients and suppliers to adopt an Environmental Policy
  • recycle paper, printer cartridges, etc. wherever possible
  • discourage printing; encouraging double-sided printing, if printing is required
  • re use files and folders
  • share information electronically within the office
  • minimise the use of travel, by the use of communication technologies
  • share transport or use public transport
  • switch off computers, printers, photocopiers and other appliances when not in use
  • switch off unnecessary lighting and use energy efficient light bulbs where possible
  • turn down the heating a fraction in winter
  • open windows instead of turning on the air-conditioning

 

Responsibility

The chain of responsibility for implementing this policy begins with our Directors and cascades to all levels of the organisation.

 

Review

To ensure we continue to take advantage of all new ideas and policies to protect and enhance the environment we shall review our policy and practice at least annually.
