Our business statement

SteadyPay 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, with regular review points.

Responsibility

Our Executive Management Team (EMT) is responsible for ensuring that the environmental policy is implemented. However, all employees have a responsibility in their area to ensure that the aims and objectives of the policy are met.

We take steps both internally and externally to show our commitment to reducing our environmental impact. Below is a summary of our actions:

Internally

Actions (with examples below)

Waste management

• We will reduce the amount of waste produced and recycle where possible.

• We will prevent the release of pollutants that can cause environmental damage (if relevant).

• We have a paperless policy which permits production of paper documents only when needed for legal or regulatory purposes.

Office supplies

• We will evaluate the environmental impact of any new products we intend to purchase.

• Office supplies are kept to a minimum, based on being a paperless office

Monitoring and improvement

• We will continually improve and monitor environmental performance.

• We will engage our team to provide their opinions and suggestions, to aide with the improvement of our environmental performance.

Maintenance and office cleaning

• Where applicable, the cleaning materials we use will be checked to ensure it’s as environmentally friendly as possible.

• If we occupy a serviced office, or an office which includes the cleaning services, we will ask the landlord and/or service provider to confirm their materials are environmentally friendly as possible

Energy

• Lights and electrical equipment will be switched off when not in use and our heating will be adjusted with energy consumption in mind. • We will use automatic lighting where possible

Our people

• We will increase employee awareness through training.

Legal duties

Externally
