We believe that everyone is responsible for the preservation of our environment. Of course we want to be successful in our business goals but we want to do this whilst ensuring we reduce the impact we have on the environment. That’s why we are committed to playing our part.
As a communications company we are committed to reducing our own carbon footprint by taking practical steps as a team. We use technology to enable a more flexible working approach by enabling Opus team members to work from home or different locations. This reduces CO2 emissions by cutting travel and enables the individual to work more effectively. We frequently use conference calls to enable our geographically diverse teams to participate in meetings, which reduces travelling and increases productivity.
We recycle waste in our offices and ensure that we use paper and other resources responsibly to reduce emissions. We dispose of old equipment in line with current legislation and we also invest in our support staff and equipment which enables us deal with 90% of all support calls from our offices.
Whilst we’re doing everything we can, we still travel to support customers, use electricity to power equipment and run offices, so we calculate our carbon footprint and each year we plant enough trees to ensure we’re carbon neutral.
Our environmental policy is evolving and we are committed to changing our working patterns to help us preserve the environment. We empower all team members to play their part through education and support. We will continue to be responsible about our resources – like our company vehicles – and ensure that they are replaced appropriately when due for renewal.
We look to our suppliers and partners to emulate our attitude and policy for the environment. We also seek to influence our customers whenever we provide a communications solution.
