Waste Reduction/Recycling

Waste Reduction and Recycling Practices

Reducing the environmental impact of our operations

We worked with our landlords to understand the waste practices at a sample of our offices across the country. This included reviewing the results of current and, when available, past waste audits conducted by the landlords. In FY2014, we will continue working to identify ways we can track this type of data on a more consistent basis with a higher degree of detail in order to build a plan to reduce the amount of waste we generate and increase our recycling efforts. Because of the nature of our business, reducing paper consumption is a key priority. We track consumption by monitoring the amount of paper we purchase. In FY2013, our paper consumption declined by more than 11% to 51,868,000 sheets in comparison to 58,350,000 in FY2012.
