Chess Eco-Team Re-accredited

Chess recently re-accredited to the ISO 14001 environmental standard.

Since 2009 the business has recycled over 20 tonnes of paper and plastics alongside reducing its annual energy consumption by 18% in 2013. Their green initiatives are spurred on by their Eco-Team, a group of Chess employees who set targets and goals for the business to make it a greener company.

Anne Binnie, HR Director and a member of the Eco-Team stated, “It’s part of our culture at Chess to minimise our impact on the environment and the Eco-Team have come up with various initiatives to further reduce our impact. Our most successful have been the ‘bike to work’ Government backed scheme encouraging us to ride instead of drive and also a green car incentive where our people can lease an eco-friendly vehicle at discounted rates.”
