Green Policy

Sibley & Associates recognizes environmental protection as one of our guiding principles and a key component of sound business performance. Through its Green Policy, Sibley & Associates is striving to instill a corporate-wide philosophy and employee practice of reducing, reusing, and recycling to contribute to an environmentally sound future. We will strive for customer satisfaction as well as our contribution to sustainable development by achieving high “environmental quality” in products, services and corporate activities.

Components:

Decision Making: Integrate the consideration of environmental concerns and impact into all of our decision making and activities.

Communication & Training: Sibley promotes environmental awareness among our employees and encourages them to work in an environmentally-responsible manner. We train, educate and inform our employees about environmental issues that may affect their work, and regularly communicate our environmental program to our customers and the public, encouraging them to support it.

Procurement: Purchase and use of environmentally-responsible products that have been selected based on criteria, including lower toxicity or environmental hazard, durability, use of recyclable materials, reduced energy and/or water consumption, reduced packaging and ability to be recycled, refilled or refurbished at end of life.

Recycling: Purchase recycled products unless such products do not perform in a satisfactory manner, and/or are unreasonably expensive. Ensure blue box recycling program.

Energy Reduction: Limit energy consumption by promoting efficient use of materials and resources throughout our offices including water, electricity and other resources, particularly those that are non renewable – e.g energy efficient lighting, equipment in save mode, etc.

Waste Reduction: Reduce waste through re-use and recycling and by purchasing recycled, recyclable or refurbished products and materials when available, economical and suitable e.g. products with limited packaging, limit use of disposable cutlery & dishware.

Continual Improvement: Strive to continually improve our environmental performance by periodically reviewing our environmental policy in light of our current and planned future activities.
