2. Environmental Information – Supplementary
In addition to the information provided in our Environmental Policy, the company draws your attention to the following:
CACI supports recycling of paper through the use of dedicated bins, which are collected by specialist contractors. Regular reminders to staff of the importance of disposing of paper in the appropriate receptacles are issued.
- Recycling of vending machine cups is promoted by similar collection methods. The supply of mineral water is contracted out to specialist contractors.
- Printing of material is discouraged by effective storage and sharing of information electronically via electronic document repositories and the use of email and the company Intranet.
- Use of colour printing facilities is monitored to ensure proper use.
- Staff are reminded to turn off all electrical equipment at night.
- All except emergency lighting is switched off at night by external security staff who patrol the head office complex.
- Dress restrictions are relaxed during inclement heat to help minimize use of air conditioning and several offices are fitted with discrete air conditioning units that are turned off when rooms are not in use.
- Specialist contractors inspect all electrical equipment for safety and efficiency at regular intervals. Faulty equipment is replaced.
- CACI has a company car scheme but imposes restrictions on the choice of car to eliminate high performance, sports utility and other similar models that are not fuel-efficient.
- All CACI offices have limited parking spaces and employees are encouraged to commute by public transport, which is encouraged by the location of offices near public transport hubs and by the availability of interest-free season ticket loans to employees.
- CACI conducts conference call meetings where appropriate to reduce transportation impacts.
- The need for environmental efficiency and sustainability is included in induction training, where employees are briefed on the company’s environmental policy.
- Email communications are used to remind employees of their responsibilities.
