Environmental Policy

Environmental Policy

STEM Blue Level Environmental AwardBreathe Insurance Brokers Ltd is an independent business insurance broker providing insurance and risk management services to businesses in Kent and throughout the UK. Caring for the environment is an important part of how we conduct our business and is a key responsibility of our staff. We are committed to continuous improvements in environmental performance and the prevention of pollution.

 

Our commitment is to:

  • Meet or exceed all environmental UK regulatory requirements that relate to our company
  • Identify and manage environmental risks
  • Reduce our consumption of resources
  • Reduce pollution of land, air and water
  • Minimise waste
  • Manage and dispose of all waste in a responsible manner
  • Encourage our suppliers and clients to be aware of environmental issues
  • Promote a culture of environmental awareness

To meet our commitments we will:

  • re-use and recycle all paper, cardboard and office waste
  • compost all food waste
  • pay due regard to emissions when selecting company vehicles and make use of public transport to meetings where possible (our business travel in Kent, and throughout the UK, helps us provide excellent customer service, but we recognise that this has an impact on the environment)
  • use environmental and ethical suppliers for all our services and office supplies, where possible
  • deal with suppliers, including insurers, and clients electronically, where possible
  • adopt energy saving practices in the office

This statement represents our position on environmental issues, and the policies and practices we apply in conducting our business. It will be reviewed annually or in light of any organisational or operational change.
