We strive to do our part for the environment by maximising our use of resources and cutting down on wastage whenever we can. GYC aims to reduce our energy use and paper consumption.
"We won't have a society if we destroy the environment."
– Margaret Mead, cultural anthropologist
All our printing is done on paper from sustainable forests, and employees are encouraged to print on both sides of each sheet. Documents are recycled rather than thrown away. We turn off the lights for rooms that aren't in use and seek to eliminate vampire power where possible. We're also embracing a shift to electronic communication and the digitisation of common processes, further reducing our paper usage and wastage. We have likewise started the process of migrating to secure cloud-based systems for document storage to reduce our carbon footprint.
