“Go Green” recognises Aztec’s achievements
Aztec has committed to “Go Green” with Southlondon.biz, the enterprise arm of Merton Chamber of Commerce.
In 2006 the company’s directors decided that it was a major business priority to become one of the leading lights in recognising and acting to reduce its impact on the environment. The company’s sustainability policy was written the same year and the staff and directors have demonstrated their commitment in a multitude and forever growing number of ways ever since.These include:
Relocating to evergy efficient premises in 2007 to premises fitted with wind turbines for electricity generation
Containers for recycling cans, glass, paper, card, plastics, toner cartridges, aerosols and any environmentally toxic substances
Environmentally sympathetic disposal of all electrical equipment above and beyond the WEEE directive
Installation of a mains fed water coolers in place of water bottles
Recycling of felt used on stage sets by donation to local schools to local schools
Receiving faxes into the company electronically to reduce paper usage
“We have always recognised that tackling environmental issues has to be driven with commercial considerations in mind. Go Green shares this ethos and has helped us to take the steps towards becoming carbon neutral” said Commercial Director, Mark Parker
The initial investment was significant but the cost savings have been easy to identify particularly since the relocation. The main factor in the success at the company has been the efforts put in by every member of staff, who see this as an extension of their role within the company and want to excel, like everything else they do.
