Charities

The Office Works is proud to support the Multiple Sclerosis Society, we have been working with them since the end of 2009 with the aim to help them reduce and control the operating costs. We have been able to cut their annual expenditure by £15,000.00 per annum; enabling the MS Society to redirect those funds straight back into research, support and their goals.

Office Services Manager, MS Society, highlighted the benefits of this long term relationship:

“Our relationship with Andy Hudson and The Office Works has been hugely beneficial to the Society and has enabled us to provide office supplies and consumables to the organisation at a greatly reduced cost without compromising on the quality of goods ordered or the service provided.”

With the ever increasing climate change and other environmental threats, The Office Works have undertaken a 3 year carbon reduction programme with CARBON SMART

It is our aim to achieve the highest status in the SO-GO-ECO carbon reduction programme for our Ruslip Operation and subsequently during our 2nd year we have reduced our absolute emissions by a further 0.06 tonnes CO2e, which is one of the lowest in our industry.

We know that our business model and efficiencies deliver a lower impact on the environment than the traditional business models and acting as a role model, we will actively encourage our suppliers and clients new and old, to embrace in a carbon reduction program and consider the way that their business impacts on the environment.

 

We will continue to comply with current legislation and follow good practices with a continual improvement and aim to:-

 

  1. Endeavour to switch to a zero landfill scheme
  2. Highlight awareness internally through our action plan of the steps we need to take to reduce our carbon footprint

  4. Encourage and promote green travel with staff and customers
  5. Provide regular and effective communication to staff and customers and ensure that responsibilities and personal targets are set and understood

 

The action plan will be communicated to our staff and suppliers through our website, and posting on our So-Go-Eco Action Board at our premises in Ruslip.

The So-Go-Eco Action Board will show our commitments, policies action plan along with the subsequent results.

Our new environmental policy will be published and shown in our reception area, in general communications and on our website, also a full annual review will take place alongside a quarterly action plan review.
