Green Credentials

Ansvar is committed to improving energy efficiency wherever possible and taking a pro-active approach to reducing our carbon footprint.

 A number of initiatives have been put in place over the past couple of years:
  • Solar panel installation 2014 - Ansvar has 32 Solar PV panels installed which generate on average per year 6150 kWh. This saves approx. 3.5 tons of CO2 emissions per year
  • Energy saving light bulbs are fitted throughout the building
  • PIR light sensors are fitted throughout the building
  • Cistermisers are fitted in toilets to reduce water usage
Activities to manage our waste reduction have been in place for several years and we actively recycle the following waste products:
  • Paper - Ansvar is part of the Shred-it recycling program and recycle an amount equivalent to 50 trees each year 
  • Drinking cups - all vending machine cups for visitors are made of cardboard and recyclable. All staff have reusable cups.
  • Toner cartridges
  • Cardboard
  • Plastic bottles
  • Tin cans
And finally, more than 80% of our policy documents and brochures are sent electronically rather than by post.
