In addition to the careful planning that goes into each and every one of our tours, we also have a policy of operating our office in a responsible manner - to reduce the impact on our local environment.
What we do in the office
We turn off all lights, printers, photocopiers and PC's at the end of each day: a PC monitor switched off overnight saves enough energy to microwave six meals; leaving a computer on 24/7 costs four times more than if you switch it off; a photocopies left on overnight uses enough energy to produce over 1,500 copies
We use energy efficient light bulbs and make sure they're regularly cleaned - dirty bulbs can reduce the amount of effective light by over 25%
We've turned down every radiator by 1 degree in a bid to reduce energy consumption by as much as 10%
All our brochures are printed on paper from sustainable sources and sent in bio-degradable packaging
We strive to reduce paper consumption and, what we do use, we recycle
We recycle all our used laser printer and inkjet cartridges
