UK Environmental Statement
Insight Direct (UK) Ltd acknowledges a social responsibility to protect the environment. We are taking serious steps towards reducing carbon emissions as a values-driven organisation that believes in doing the right thing across every aspect of our business.
Our ultimate objective is to protect our environment for future generations through our program of continual environmental improvement and monitoring. We examine and attempt to minimise the generation of waste at source (including client destined inventory) and take all reasonable steps to see that waste is recycled or disposed of in a safe and environmentally acceptable way.
Working in harmony with our teammates, partners and clients, Insight globally strives to promote the use of suppliers and contractors who are managing and improving their environmental performance. We encourage the involvement of teammates by consultation in the setting of environmental objectives, education, improving the working environment, and by seeking individual commitment and contributions to such initiatives. Insight globally monitors contractors and vendors for environmental certification and working under the continuous improvement of the environmental management system, we’re looking to expand the program to include new contractors or vendors at onboarding.
Under our ISO 14001 Environmental Management system certification Insight UK abides by all existing local and national environmental laws and regulations. This is carried out under the ISO 26000 Corporate and Social Responsibilities accredited best practices. We also commit to minimising our environmental impact through our Carbon Data Reporting, and have implemented the “Insight Carbon Data Standard” based on the Defra GHG guidelines to ensure all carbon data is reported and calculated using the same process.
In addition, Insight globally participates in the United Nations Global Compact, the world’s largest corporate sustainability
initiative. As such we are committed to the Ten Principles of the United Nations Global Compact which includes three key principles in relation to the environment:
- Principle 7: businesses should support a precautionary approach to environmental challenges;
- Principle 8: undertake initiatives to promote greater environmental responsibility;
- Principle 9: encourage the development and diffusion of environmentally friendly technologies.
