Environmental Policy

ilateral are proud to be an environmentally responsible company. Sustainability is at the heart of our company and we therefore treat our environmental policy as our company policy.
ilateral are fully committed to reducing the impact our company has on the environment. This includes identifying the aspects of our business relative to this process, measurement and monitoring, providing solutions to reduce negative impacts, the prevention of pollution and a commitment to continually improve our environmental performance. We promote our environmental ethos and policies internally to our staff and externally to our clients, suppliers and partners.

Actions taken to promote for environmental responsibility:

  • Monitor our energy usage and waste output.
  • Actively reduce our waste through non-printing, recycling and re-use as much as possible.
  • Embrace new and more efficient technologies to reduce energy consumption by providing better performance per watt or automated ‘power down when not in use’ policies.
  • Purchase products and services from third party suppliers that share similar environmental positioning goals as our own.
  • Ensure that all our activities and services comply with all relevant environmental legislations.
  • Make our environmental policies known and obtainable, available to the public in printed and digital editions.

This policy is reviewed on an annual basis and will provide a framework for assessing and improving all environmental objectives and targets.

Equality Policy

ilateral is committed to equal opportunities and to treating every individual with dignity and respect.

Our aim is to ensure that all job applicants and employees are treated fairly, with no direct or indirect discrimination on the grounds of sex, marital status, race, colour, religion, nationality, creed, ethnic
or national origins, age, sexual preference, disability or other conditions not justified on law or relevant to their performance of the job.

Individuals will in all instances be treated according to their abilities and merits, and their suitability to the job’s requirements. Wherever possible we’ll make reasonable changes to the work environment so employees with special needs are given the same opportunities as the able-bodied.

We recognise the importance of staff cooperation to this policy’s success. Each employee must help remove or change practices that lead to discrimination, whether directly or indirectly.

Laws we comply with:

  • Sex discrimination act 1975
  • Race relations Act 1976
  • Disability Discrimination Act 1995
  • Employment Equality (Age) Regulations 2006

All staff should work to promote best practice in equal opportunities.

All staff are expected to behave in a nondiscriminatory way. ilateral won’t tolerate actions or words that reflect prejudice against people on the basis of their disability, gender, age, religion, race, sexual orientation, colour, national or ethnic origin, or that are against the spirit of our policy.

Any breach of this rule is taken very seriously. If it is broken, the member of staff can expect to be disciplined. Serious breaches can lead to dismissal.
