Our Carbon Footprint
Here at Jorgensen Accounting Specialists we are conscious of the impact that we have as a business on our environment. We have taken some steps toward reducing our carbon footprint by introducing and implementing some easy strategies which reduce our rubbish and benefit others.
We have a system of composting whereby one person takes the compost for the week home in a lidded container to add to her own personal compost bins. There are two of these containers which ensure that no compostable material ever goes into the rubbish bag.
We have a shredder which we use daily for paper only. This paper goes into large black plastic rubbish bags which are then picked up by or delivered to Uncle Zitos wholesalers and Flamedaisy glass design studio and workshop for packing purposes.
Our printer cartridges are all recycled through Cartridge World who also provide us with a refill service on some of our printer cartridges.
As often as possible we reuse paper for printing off emails and other documents.
In April 2011 we replaced all of the fluorescent tube lighting in our offices with eco fluorescent tubing from ecoBright in Australia. This lighting uses 50% of the power and has no flicker effect.
There are always other changes that can be made and we work on those little by little at the same time taking into account the needs of the staff.
