Gilbert + Tobin has a proud community-conscious track record on environmental issues. Our ‘Green Team’ is a group of ambassadors working to enhance environmental awareness, both at work and at home.
We recognise the significance of understanding the environmental impact of our business and our clients’ businesses.
Within our firm we have a Green Team, comprising staff throughout the firm. They spread the message of using less, acting more.
They are ambassadors for our Sustainability and Sustainable Procurement Policies.
Those policies commit us to assessing environmental risks and incorporating them within the Gilbert + Tobin overall risk management framework.
The Green Team works on a number projects to help reduce our footprint on the environment, to raise staff awareness of sustainability and to connect how we conserve resources at home with how we behave at work.
We are committed to continually improving our environmental performance. We have achieved a 5-star NABERS Energy rating for our Sydney tenancy by purchasing 50% accredited Green Power. We have reduced our use of resources in a number of areas, but there is still room for improvement. We continue to develop our systems for recording and monitoring our water, energy, and paper consumption as well as our travel patterns.
We are an Organisational Stakeholder in the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) an internationally recognised sustainability reporting framework.
