We strive to walk or use public transport to attend all of our meetings that must be held face to face. Our online accounting approach goes further in reducing our emissions as it allows us to work with our clients without any travel or requirement to post documents.
We work with local suppliers. This means that we are able to walk to collect orders or reduce delivery miles when we cannot collect ourselves. Supporting local businesses also helps sustain the local economy.
At Accounts and Legal we like to go paperless; it helps the environment around us and makes us more efficient. All of our contractual documents are electrically sent, signed and returned.
As Gold accredited Xero partners we also encourage our clients to keep their vital information in the accounting cloud. This gives us access to everything we need 24 hours a day, 7 days a week while reducing the need for paper files to be transported between us and them. We also use Receiptbank.
Of course we can’t always go paper free but where we can’t we strive to use recycled materials; this leaflet for instance.
Our Brighton branch operates from a shared space meaning we share the use of utilities with other businesses. The space also means we can work with lots of different businesses and share our network with our clients.
We have pledged to purchase Carbon Offsets to reduce our carbon footprint. Our aim is to be as carbon neutral as we possibly can.
