Tackling climate action

10.92 total tonnes recycled

GoCo Group remains committed to better understanding our contribution to climate change and working collaboratively with stakeholders to reduce potential impacts.

We have an environmental policy which recognises our responsibility to the environment beyond legal and regulatory requirements. We are dedicated to reducing our environmental impact and continually improving our environmental performance as an integral part of our business strategy and operating methods, with regular review points. We encourage customers, suppliers and other stakeholders to do the same.

All our lights are on passive infrared sensors (PIRs), which ensures that lights are turned off when there is no movement – small, but important steps, to save energy and tackle the impact of our large office spaces. In our London office, we have installed LED lighting which will reduce our energy consumption going forward and this is something we aim to achieve Group-wide.

Throughout 2019, we have undertaken a drive on waste, including internal education around recycling and placement of individual recycling containers at all breakout areas. Our goal is to ensure recycling is a seamless part of everyday life.

We are proud that throughout our offices, all food waste is sent to compost and not to landfill. This reduces our plastic mix and further energy consumption. In 2019, 10.92 tonnes of waste was recycled.

We are committed to reducing our single use plastic consumption, and are on a mission to become free from single use plastic for our onsite food production in 2020.

We are working alongside our parking provider, to provide staff with electric car charging points, and expect this to be in place mid-2020.

The scope of the GoCo Group emissions inventory extended to two additional offices in London and Alloa following our acquisitions. We are unable to track the energy use and/or carbon emissions from the leased office in Alloa and as such the associated emissions have not been included above and as such the intensity metric of employee number and occupied floor area have been adjusted to include the Newport and London offices only.
LB – Location Based Emissions; these figures should be used when comparing year on year emissions variations.
MB – Market Based Emissions.
