Beryllium Corporation is committed to promoting sustainability within its business practices and for our community. Concern for the environment and wellbeing of the individuals that make up our company is our top concern. We aim to follow and to promote good sustainability practice, to reduce the environmental impacts of all our activities and to help our employees, clients and partners to do the same.
Principles Our Sustainability Policy is based upon the following principles:
To comply with, and exceed where possible, with all applicable environmental laws and codes of practice.
To integrate sustainability considerations into all our business decisions.
To ensure that all staff are fully aware of our Sustainability Policy and are committed to implementing and improving it.
To minimize the impact on sustainability of all office and transportation activities.
To make clients and suppliers aware of our Sustainability Policy and encourage them to adopt sound and sustainable management practices.
To review, annually report, and to continually strive to improve our sustainability performance.
Practical steps: In order to put these principles into practice we will:
Travel and meetings Beryllium Corporation promotes work from home initiatives in every project it gets involved with. It is important that we approach our clients and present them with the great benefits of allowing our consultants and system integrators to work from their homes. If working remotely is not feasible for our client, we promote carpooling amongst our employees.
For projects overseas, when possible, we combine remote work with occasional travel by plane. Since our headquarters are located on an island in the Caribbean, air travel is the only viable mean of travel to other countries or territories.
Use an emissions recording scheme for business travel to monitor our impact.
Purchase of equipment and consumption of resources
Beryllium Corporation, as a technology solutions provider, we have eliminated the use of paper while reducing the need for other office consumables, identifying opportunities to reduce waste.
As far as possible arrange for the reuse or recycling of office waste, including computer supplies and redundant equipment.
Reduce the energy consumption of office equipment by purchasing energy efficient equipment and good housekeeping.
Ensure that timber furniture, and any other timber products, are recycled or from well-managed and sustainable sources.
Purchase products that are sourced from fair-trade.
