We recognise that our work may have a direct or indirect effect on the local, regional, national environment. We are therefore committed to reducing any harm that this may cause on the environment.
Our policy is to constantly look for ways in which we can reduce our impact on the environment and we are achieving this in some unusual ways.
We have standard policies for:
Reusing materials at every opportunity
Repair rather than throw away where we can
Utilise energy and water supplies sparingly
Consider environmental impacts in our purchasing policy
Endeavour to work with partner organisations that share our green values
Reduce the need for transport and its impacts on the environment
However, we also go much further - GLS has planted native woodland comprising in excess of 10,000 trees so that we more than compensate for any carbon footprint produced by the company and all of its employees. This woodland is managed and maintained in environmentally-responsible ways and is a permanent woodland and not a commercial plantation.
If you are seeking a supplier that actively cares for the environment then take a closer look at GLS because we offset our entire environmental impact.
You can therefore be confident in the knowledge that translation work you place with GLS has no impact on the environment. Our woodland not only benefits the environment, it also helps you comply with your own carbon offset policies and provides an undisturbed haven for wildlife.
A CO2-neutral translation provider? That’s what you get with GLS!
