Environmental Policy



Gotham specialises in visual communication and print management services. Gotham recognises that our office-based activities have an effect on the local environment and that it has a responsibility to the environment beyond legal and regulatory requirements. We are committed to reducing our environmental impact and continually improving our environmental performance as an integral part of our business strategy and operating methods, with regular review points. We will encourage customers and suppliers to do the same. As a consequence of this, Gotham is committed to continuous improvements in environmental performance.

Therefore our policy is to:

Identify, promote and strive to achieve best practice in environmental management.
Comply with all relevant regulatory requirements.
Continually improve and reduce environmental impacts.
Incorporate environmental factors into business decisions.
Include minimum environmental standards in our supplier and procurement decisions.
Increase employee awareness and training.
Continually improve and monitor environmental performance.

Couriers must demonstrate their commitment to the environment and employ emission abatement strategies.
Cleaning products and other consumables are purchased for their environmental merit.
