doing our bit for
As a fully committed socially and environmentally responsible company, we constantly strive to make a positive difference through all of our business activities. Not only do we want to be one of the best places to work, but we also want Access to be as ethically and environmentally responsible as possible!
We are proud to be the only travel management company credited on BAFTA's sustainable supplier list and have been accredited to environmental standard (ISO 14001) for the past 5 years - we've also worked with many top productions who have been awarded Albert+ certification. We're always looking for new ways to demonstrate that we've adopted the best practices to manage the environmental impacts of our business.
Here's just a sample of some of our key priority areas:
- To reduce the use of resources and to recycle and re-use where possible
- To encourage and communicate with staff to engage in greater environmental awareness at both work and home
- To reduce our carbon footprint
- To operate an energy reduction programme
- To actively support local and global communities
As if that wasn’t enough, we also operate on our own eco-friendly grading programme within our supply chain! Our programme accredits providers who are able to demonstrate that they operate in an environmentally friendly manner, this is marked on our enquires using our green logo !
Through our commitment to sustainability and working with our suppliers and customers to ensure we can demonstrate environmental and social sustainability in all our activities. Here you'll find our sustainability policy.
Access Bookings is also committed to ensuring that modern slavery & human trafficking is not taking place in our business. Please view our signed statement.
