In August 2007 SmartWorks (a Global Action Plan initiative) conducted an Environmental Audit and Assessment of Article 13 Group. The programme was then followed up in March 2008 to see what changes or improvement had been made.
The initial report recommended a number of ‘quick wins’ as well as ‘longer term’ actions that Article 13 could take to make key savings, especially in energy consumption. The follow up review looked at any progress or actions taken against these recommendations focusing on the areas of energy, water, waste and resource use, procurement, travel, legislation and environmental management.
In keeping with Article 13’s commitment to review and progress, over the past six months we have made significant changes to our environmental practice and actions. These actions, alongside our existing and longstanding Sustainability and Environmental Policies, exemplify Article 13’s continual striving to improve its environmental performance and advocate responsible business in the area of environmental and social sustainability.
