ITR is pleased to announce that it has passed its annual EMS (Environmental Management System) audit in order to retain the International Environmental Standard ISO 14001, for which we have been accredited since 2002. The audit was performed by BSI at ITR’s premises in west London.
ITR’s approach to caring for the environment ensures that we optimise our green working practices, comply with legislation and implement policies and procedures geared towards creating a sustainable environment.
Here are just some of the ways that we reduce our impact on the environment:
As documentation specialists who translate projects into multiple languages, we help preserve the environment by reviewing translations via electronic means, ensuring paper usage is kept to a minimum. We also recycle all our confidential waste.
We donate our old computers and servers to Computer Aid International, who then distribute working machines to developing countries in need of technology. We also participate in the Nature Conservancy’s Plant a Billion Trees scheme operated through Xerox, whereby our old printers are recycled in exchange for the planting of trees in the Atlantic Forest of Brazil.
ITR is registered with providers of the Government’s Cycle to Work scheme. Employees can benefit from significant savings on the cost of a new bike, which promotes healthier journeys to work, reduces congestion and contributes towards creating a greener planet.
ITR continues to reduce its carbon footprint by being committed and proactive in its approach to ensuring its Environmental Management System complies with and exceeds legislation requirements.
