It all adds up, so we make a conscious effort to keep Synergy’s carbon footprint down.
We try to go car-free as much as possible
Sometimes we have to drive for meetings or deliveries, but the majority of our work is done from home. We don’t need to drive to and from work, we work as digitally as possible. We much prefer picking up the phone or typing an email than jumping in the car.
We work from home
By combining our work space with our home space we reduce our overall energy consumption, building emissions and significantly reduce our fuel consumption.
We work in a paperless office – we email invoices and letters and notes are recorded on the computer rather than on throw-away pads or note books. We prefer to use a flashdrive or email than print a proof and we encourage our clients to view proofs on-screen.
With the availability of quality digital printing services now-a-days, we are able to print in smaller runs, minimising wastage. This means that all of our marketing collateral and that of our clients, makes less of an impact on the environment. Double sided printing goes a long way too!
What little paper or plastics that fly through our office are recycled.
LED, yup, all the bulbs throughout our office are low-energy LED bulbs. This helps to save up to 0.6 billion kWh of electricity per year. We also switch ‘em off when we don’t need them, often our computer will generate enough light to work from.
We’ve enabled Power Management on our devices and computer, so they shut down or sleep.
We challenge you to make a change to your home and working life to conserve energy and preserve our environment…
