London, United Kingdom, 2009/01/21 - As part of Article 13’s values and principles we feel it our duty to do everything we can to reduce our environmental footprint. Therefore on a monthly basis a dedicated member of the Article 13 team monitors; the levels of fuel use.
Article 13 have recently published our annual Environmental report which details;
1. Our monthly usage of fuel, electricity, paper, air travel emissions, public transport;
2. The 2008 percentage change on our 2007 levels;
3. Our targets and actions for 2009 to further improve our environmental practices and impacts of our business activities and operations.
Due to the day-to-day individual efforts of our team, as well as a Company concerted effort up to and including 2008, Article 13 has monitored and the following changes in our; in our fuel consumption (14% increase on our 2007 levels due to increasing attendance and therefore use of car travel to and from the office); electricity consumption (a 27% decrease); paper consumption (a 10% decrease); and business related air travel emissions (a 144% decrease) on 2007 levels.
To continue to push our targets and thus efforts, for 2009 we have committed to further improvements to our environmental practices and actions, mainly by; changing behaviour (e.g. reducing business related car travel), promoting responsibility (e.g. advocate and raise awareness through our vast network and website), and actioning measures (e.g. annual offset of our carbon footprint)
These actions, alongside our existing and longstanding Environmental policy, exemplify Article 13’s continual striving to improve its environmental performance and advocates responsible business in the area of environmental and social sustainability.
