Environmental Policy Statement
Method Consulting LLP is committed to leading the industry in minimising the impact of its activities on the environment. This statement confirms Method’s commitment to continuous improvement in managing environmental issues.
Some of the many Environmental Regulations that we have considered include:-

Minimise operational waste by evaluating operations and ensuring they are as efficient as possible.
Monitor all forms of waste and set targets for minimising waste sent to landfill.
Actively promote recycling both internally and amongst customers and suppliers.
Meet or exceed all relevant environmental legislation.
Aim to reduce energy use from company operations.
Raise awareness and train all members of staff in the company’s impact on the environment and enlist support in improving performance.
Implement an environmental purchasing policy for all products and services acquired.
Encourage the use of sustainable travel.
Measure, report and set targets for improvement on environmental performance annually.
This policy statement shall be reviewed annually by the partners of Method Consulting LLP.
