KMP Create recognises that businesses can have a negative impact on the environment. We are committed, and enjoy, finding ways in which we can reduce the impact of our work both in the office and when work takes us away from the office.

It is our policy to:

• Recycle as much waste material as possible
• Avoid the use of paper wherever possible. For example, sending invoices and quotes via email as PDF files.
• Recycling equipment that is no longer of use to the company. For example, giving away items such as computers and printers that we no longer use.
• Keep energy usage low. For example, making use of low energy light bulbs throughout and ensuring that computers are shut down after work.
• Reuse waste paper (from the printer) where possible, making use of the blank side for notes etc.
• Purchase products made with recycled paper. For example, paper towels, printer paper
• Purchase products with a lower environmental impact. For example environmentally safe soaps and detergents.
• Use low impact transport for travel to and from work and travel for business. For example, we use public transport to attend meetings where possible and encourage staff to cycle to work or to carpool.
• Avoid unnecessary travel by making use of instant messaging, video and audio conferencing, telephone and email.  

Steps we are taking: 

KMP Create is not only committed to its own policies but to improving those of suppliers and clients. We have been developing and have in practice an online business management tool to help run our business and keep waste down to a minimum. All communication in the system is virtual and by making use of our own developing online technologies we save on our own and our suppliers carbon footprints.

We encourage our clients to take advantage of the internet and provide CMS systems to avoid print. All print provided by KMP Create comes with a recycled paper option and is actively promoted.

Monitoring and reporting
Our Sustainability Policy will be monitored annually and reviewed (from January 2012) by the Director. The Director will seek to continually improve environmental performance.
