Lancashire-based Daisy Communications has introduced its e-billing campaign, an initiative aimed at converting its 20,000-strong customer base from traditional paper bills to online bills.
For every new customer that signs up to e-billing, and any existing customer that converts, the company will donate £1 to daisy’s chosen charity, The Prince’s Trust.
Daisy CEO Matthew Riley said: “At daisy we are committed to reducing our impact on the environment and as part of this we are actively asking our customers to register for e-billing. By switching to e-billing customers can do their bit to protect the environment and help daisy reduce the volume of valuable resources the company uses by sending out paper bills.
“We hope to convert 25% of our customers in the first three months of the campaign.”
The push towards e-billing follows a number of other initiatives employed at the Lancashire-based firm.
And coinciding with Green Transport Week, the company held the “Daisy Goes Green Day”. Already an environmentally aware company, the green day saw the launch of daisy’s new car share scheme, where staff that provide a lift to other employees were given priority green parking bays at the front of the building.
The day also saw staff wear green and find more environmentally friendly methods of getting to work. Matthew Riley arrived at work on a unicycle, while other members of staff arrived on a tandem and bikes, while others opted for public transport.
Riley said: “Daisy has always made strides to limit its impact on the environment, we were one of the first companies to introduce online billing and we have held the ISO14001 accreditation for the environment since 2003. But it also makes business sense for us to be more environmentally aware, increasingly we have found customers are looking to their suppliers to have a more environmental conscience.”
Daisy is keen to meet government targets set out in the 2003 Energy White Paper, to reduce carbon emissions in the UK by 60% from 1990 levels by 2050.
