Sustainability and the Environment
Alecto Medical Recruitment and Consulting recognises that it has a responsibility to the environment beyond legal and regulatory requirements. We are committed to reducing our environmental impact and continually improving our environmental performance as an integral part of our business strategy and operating methods. We encourage contractors, clients, and suppliers to do the same.
Some of the elements of our environmental policy are as follows.
Waste to Landfill
We encourage a paperless office as much as possible.
All staff use paper recycling bins for office paper waste.
Other recyclable waste, such as plastic bottles and cans, is deposited in a separate waste bin in the central kitchen of each office.
Any waste paper that was not printed double-sided is recycled into notepads for internal staff use.
Greenhouse Gas Emissions
We choose environmentally friendly office spaces.
Our office spaces are in close vicinity to public transport hubs. Staff are encouraged to access work via public transport.
Inter-office meetings (between the Melbourne and Perth sites) are conducted via Skype conferencing to reduce the requirement to travel.
Every effort is made to purchase paper products sourced from sustainably-grown sources and produced without chlorine bleaching.
All printers are set to print double-sided by default.
Our environmental policies are widely known and accessible to all staff for additional assistance in sustainable behaviours.
All Alecto email signatures carry a reminder to read on-screen rather than printing emails.
