Corporate Responsibility & Environmental Management

Adaps is committed to minimising the impact of its activities on the environment in a responsible manner. The key points of our strategy to achieve this are:

  • Minimise waste by evaluating operations and ensuring they are as efficient as possible.
  • Actively promote recycling both internally and amongst its customers and suppliers.
  • Source and purchase supplies that minimise the environmental impact of production, consumption and distribution.
  • Energy Conservation.

Footprint

Adaps is a recruitment agency and therefore fundamentally a service organization, our footprint largely consists of the following:

  • Electricity Usage, Air-conditioning, Lighting and Building Signage.
  • Computers, General Appliances, Printers and Mobile Phones.
  • Paper and Consumables.
  • Waste Management and Recycling.
  • Transportation

Actions

The direct actions we undertake to reduce our environmental footprint are by:

  • Reducing use of our car fleet by utilizing public transport to a greater degree.
  • Investing in teleconferencing equipment and online tools. This enables overseas, interstate and even local interviewing, without the need to fly/transport candidates to us.
  • Installing programmed timers to ensure we reduce our energy consumption with our Company signage, Air-Conditioning and Heating.
  • Computer policies to ensure our equipment is not left on when not in use, which includes forced shut down or sleep mode functions.
  • Purchasing and using high energy efficient appliances.
  • Lighting completely turned off when we are not in the office.
  • Equipment recycling programs for old hardware and software.
  • Paper & cardboard recycling facilities.
  • Reducing the use of our paper supplies with more online processes and print management policies.
  • Monitoring and measuring of our electricity usage levels, including greenhouse emissions for each billing period.

Our Goals are to:

  • Reduce our electricity usage by 10% on 2011/2012 levels.
  • Reduce paper and stationery purchasing by 15% on 2011/2012 levels.
  • Eliminating a minimum of one paper based process each year.
