Caring about the environment. Protecting the future.




Caring about the environment. Protecting the future.

At Weatherbys Bank, we focus on minimising the environmental impact of all our working practices. A lighter ecological footprint is not just good for the world around us, it makes sound business sense too and that’s why we have pledged to:
 

  • Reduce consumption
  • Reduce and recycle waste
  • Choose materials from recycled or known sustainable sources
  • Reduce our greenhouse gas emissions

Converting our commitment into action.

We demonstrate our commitment to protecting the environment in many ways including:

  • Promoting energy efficiencies throughout all our buildings
  • Encouraging our colleagues to reduce their energy consumption and be aware of their environment e.g. shutting windows and doors
  • Reducing the need for paper and printer ink
  • Increasing the use of recycled paper
  • Encouraging the use of audio and video conferencing which is not just economical with people’s time and energy, but also reduces the need for travel

Our future plans.

We’re not complacent about what we’ve achieved so far. We believe there’s more work to be done so there are more ecological plans afoot including:
 

  • Installing Electric Vehicle (EV) charging points for staff/visitor use at our Wellingborough offices
  • Working towards achieving ISO standards for managing our environmental responsibilities

Supporting a water charity.


Next year, we are planning a year long programme of events to support charity: water. 

This non-profit organisation brings clean, safe drinking water to people in developing countries. In a radically transparent model, 100% of the public donations received by the charity reaches the areas in greatest need by funding sustainable water projects and working with local partners to implement them.
 
So far, it’s funded over 35,000 water projects worldwide delivering clean water, hygiene and improved sanitation to 9.5 million people. Charity: Water then uses innovative technology and powerful storytelling to share the precise impact of their positive work with their donors.
