We recognise that our activities may have both positive and negative impacts in Scotland and further afield. Through our policies and procedures, we encourage the use of public transport wherever practicable. We are fully compliant with Waste Regulations and have a separate weekly collection service for all our dry recyclable waste. We receive monthly sustainability reports that allows us to measure our progress and identify areas for improvement.
During 2016-7 we recycled 1585.6 kgs of waste which was a 45% increase on 2015-16 (1093.10 kgs). CO2e, or carbon dioxide equivalent, is a standard unit for measuring carbon footprints. This measurement expresses the impact of each different greenhouse gas in terms of the amount of CO2 that would create the same amount of warming. The total kgs of CO2(e) diverted during 2016-17 was 573.67 kgs which was a slight decrease of 7.6% on 2015-16 (620.93 kgs).
