Access to Business demonstrate their commitment to sustainable development and responsible solutions to minimise the environmental impact of their activities. They work to implement their Sustainability Development Strategy which has been incorporated into the organisation’s Business Plan and everyday activities. Some key targets are to reduce waste, water usage and carbon emissions. Access to Business actively promote recycling both internally and externally amongst their clients and suppliers and their purchasing policy requires staff to purchase locally where possible and only bio-degradable materials.
In 2017, they engaged the services of Groundworks West Midlands to undertake a complete Energy Assessment review. This would identify opportunities for Access to Business to increase energy efficiency, minimise environmental impact, achieve carbon emissions reduction and make cost savings. This year, they are working to take those recommendations and move forward.
By supporting the campaign to address the huge environmental issues caused by single-use plastics and cut down on personal and business plastic footprints, they have dramatically reduced the use of single use plastic cups by asking staff and clients to use reusable cups only.
Josie Kelly, CEO of Access to Business said “Access to Business is committed to communicate our environmental responsibilities to our clients, suppliers, staff and other stakeholders and encourage them to support it. We provide advice to clients who are interested in setting up their businesses or have existing businesses on the environmental agenda and encourage and celebrate best practice.
On 8th June 2018 we will be celebrating the World Ocean’s Day by raising awareness among our clients and supporters to minimise plastic pollution and encouraging solutions for a healthy ocean”
