Green Dragon Environmental Standard

Green Dragon Environmental Standard

Green DragonWe are officially green! Three of our offices in Swansea, Llanelli and Cardiff  have been awarded the Green Dragon Environmental Standard (Level 2). We've been working hard to raise awareness of green issues among our staff and have effectively reduced paper waste, energy usage and our overall carbon footprint.

The Green Dragon Standard is an award for managing green concerns within the business. Level 2 shows that we have raised staff awareness of the problems and have improved our impact on the environment.

Our Assistant Chief Executive, Claire Abrahams said: “Gwalia takes its environmental responsibilities very seriously and the support from staff has enabled us to achieve the level 2 Green Dragon Environmental Standard.

“Many of the little things we do each day can have a big impact; from recycling waste to switching off the computer monitor at the end of the day. We hope all staff will be aware that doing their little bit can have a big impact on the environment.”

We were assessed by the Wales Green Businesses Centre on our compliance with environmental legislation and management of pollution risk.

There are five levels within the Green Dragon Standard and each one represents international and European environmental standards.

Working with The Recycling Company based in South Cornelly, we are aiming for ‘zero landfill’ for all of our recyclable waste.
