Making the switch to recycled paper!

It’s World Environment Day! The perfect time to announce that Webhelp is switching to 100% recycled paper across all its sites across the United Kingdom.

World Environment Day is a United Nations spotlight designed to drive worldwide awareness and action to protect the environment.  Webhelp is committed to this important cause and is implementing a “Webhelp 2020 Our Greener Future” initiative, which encourages everyone in the company (and the business itself) to consider the impact of their actions on the environment.

The recycled paper being introduced is processed without any environmentally harmful bleaching agents, and can also be recycled again after use, making the change a very positive step.

Environmental Coordinator Cameron West said:

“As a business we are absolutely committed to finding ways to reduce our environmental impact. In addition to limiting printing to when it’s only absolutely necessary, moving to recycled paper makes complete sense.

“Along with our energy, waste, water & transport projects, this move further demonstrates our dedication to becoming a truly sustainable company, continually taking steps to improve our environmental performance.”  

Various other environmental initiatives have been introduced across Webhelp. A recent project creating a buzz is the addition of 120,000 honey bees to Webhelp’s Sheffield site, with a plan in place to introduce these planet friendly insects at our Kilmarnock site in the near future.

In addition to this hive of activity, the company’s Travel Commuter Club offers discounted bus travel to all employees to encourage more sustainable journeys to and from work. Employees also regularly take part in community litter clean ups, and Green Champions from across the business are trained to help raise environmental awareness.

This is just a snapshot of a comprehensive strategy to proactively limit Webhelp’s impact on the planet – watch this space for updates on other exciting initiatives!
