Sustainability Role in overall company's strategic plansSince the late 1980s, we have been aware of the ways our business operations may have an impact on the environment and have always sought alternative ways of doing things to reduce or remove harm. Today, environmental action has never been more urgent, and we are committed to doing everything we can to make a difference. We consider the environmental impact of everything we do at all levels of business decision-making.Sustainability initiativesWe've made a concerted effort to reduce our carbon emissions, by: • Reducing our annual energy consumption at our 13,500ft2 site to the equivalent of three average UK households by installing solar panelling at our headquarters, • and by replacing lightbulbs with LEDs in our warehouse. • encouraging environmentally responsible staff travel through implementing the bike-to-work scheme and opting for public transport for business travel, where possible. • and appointing an in-house Green Team to identify and lobby for ways to reduce our carbon footprint and make sure we are operating sustainably. We have also made changes to minimise our use of single-use plastic and reduce landfill waste, including: • Reusing cardboard boxes, and anything not good enough for boxing up books is shredded to be used as cushioning. • Taping up our boxes using a paper product, replacing plastic. • Using air pillows (to protect the books in our boxes) that are made of recycled materials and can be recycled.Pledges for the yearWe want to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2030, and will be launching our strategy in February. Our approach for meeting this target is to reduce our emissions wherever possible, first and foremost. And we are making progress.Sustainable ProductsN/APackagingOur packaging is made with recycled contentWe are in the process of making our packaging plastic freeMaterialsWe have products made from sustainability sourced raw materialsMany of the books we sell are made with FSC-accredited paper.Ethical ConsiderationsWe have an ethical policyWithin the workplace where our products are made there is commitment to Non-Discrimination Gender Equality and Freedom of AssociationEnviromental ImpactWe have a sustainability policy
