Environmentally friendly business practices
The majority of our office space is filled with natural light from large windows at the front of the building. Although fluorescent lighting is also used we have built in energy saving devices that switch lights off when no movement is detected after a timed period. Office equipment is generally switched off when not in use and some devices even have energy saving sleep modes, such as the photocopiers.
