Environmental & Fair Use Policy

Environmental Policy for Portel Audio Visual Limited (Portel AV Ltd)

Portel believe that businesses are responsible for achieving good environmental practice and operating in a sustainable manner.

Since 2008 we committed to reducing our environmental impact and continually improving our environmental performance as an integral and fundamental part of our business strategy and operating methods.  Thats why our team all work from home.

It is our priority to encourage our clients, suppliers and all business associates to do the same.  By using Cloud Based Servers for data and telephony together with CRM we believe most business’s can have staff working from home some of the time, if not all of the time.

Our policy is to

  • Wholly support and comply with or exceed the requirements of current environmental legislation and codes of practice.
  • Minimise our waste and then re-use or recycle as much of it as possible.
  • Minimise fuel and water usage in our buildings, vehicles and processes in order to minimise our consumption of natural resources, especially where they are non-renewable.
  • Operate and maintain our vehicles with due regard to environmental issues as far as reasonably practical and encourage the use of car sharing when possible.
  • Apply the principles of continuous improvement to reduce any impacts from our operations on the environment and local community.
  • As far as possible purchase products  that do the least damage to the environment.
  • Assess the environmental impact of any new products we intend to introduce in advance.
  • Provision for disruption that may stop your business working from its offices
  • Reduce our company carbon footprint by working towards home working for all members of the business and our sub contractors.
