Nobody can ignore it. Our beautiful planet is in trouble and we need to all take
responsibility to return the natural balance of nature.

I am excited to let you know that Dynamic Office Solutions is creating a strategy that will see
us implementing actions that will make the goals of the crucial Paris Climate Change
Agreement a reality – a decade ahead of the UK government’s own deadline.
We are proud to say we are the first in our industry to set a bold target for ourselves and we
will be investing £1m over the next 20 years to the fight to reduce the effect of our own
operations to net zero by 2040.


We have a plan that involves every facet of our business from packaging, reducing carbon
emissions, product components, healthy living initiatives, food waste, plastic usage, energy
conservation, water saving, biodiversity and healthy/sustainable living.
It is a bold plan. We hope our customers will join us in the journey that is critical to our
children and future generations. It will not always be easy – but the prize is too important
to ignore.


We have already made a significant start in 2020. Some are big measures. We are moving
furniture packaging to polystyrene free solutions and we are progressing plans to reduce it
to zero.
Our transport and sales fleet now features several eco-friendly hybrid vehicles as well as
some low emission models. More will be following, and staff are now being enrolled in
training courses for eco-driving techniques.
In addition, all Dynamic transport impact on the climate is being tackled with our active
participation in a carbon offset programme that will render our logistics travel carbon
neutral.


Some are smaller measures that still make a big difference over time. Our spring water
dispensers using big single use bottles have been replaced with filtered water fountains
around our buildings. All staff have repeat use water bottles they can fill from these.
Dynamic is formalising a paperless policy where possible for its warehouses and offices and
creating a raft of recycling zones where paper, glass, plastic and metal is segregated and re-
cycled. Our initial goal is to reduce landfill waste by 15% in the first six months and achieve
a further 35% saving by year three.


Low energy LED lighting is being introduced into all locations as part of an ongoing
programme in all company locations. In particular our production areas and warehouses
are being fitted with LED’s.

 

Our customer and vendor facing employees will be taking part in a planned reduction in
travel either by car or air. We have a strategy to use video conferencing and other online
techniques to help us dramatically reduce our negative carbon footprint effect on road and
air travel. If face-to-face is essential employees will be focused on alternative travel such as
rail as a primary consideration.


We are widening our sphere of influence as well with Dynamic already planning detailed
discussions with our supplier partners to ensure they join us in the voyage.
Discussions have already started on product and packaging. We are building in recycled and
recyclable materials into our products. In addition, we are conducting a thorough review of
all packaging – removing polystyrene and using recycled or recyclable cardboard to protect
our products.


It is the start of a long journey. But from Day 1 we are making a positive impact on the
environment we all share.
Our two eco warriors have already volunteered to lead the crucial charge. They are Kieron
and Jackson who are now the Dynamic Environmental Champions.
Join the fight. Notify them if you have an idea of how we can work together to make our
planet a better place for us, and our children.
