Top 40 accountancy firm, Bishop Fleming, has successfully reduced its paper consumption by over a third, saving the equivalent of 87 trees - an impressive achievement as the firm’s growth continued to rise by over 5% in 2015.

Since introducing an Environmental Management System five years ago to measure three main KPIs – electricity and gas usage, mileage, and paper ordered; overall environmental performance for the firm is looking much greener.

Alongside the impressive reduction in paper usage, which can be attributed in part to the firm’s continued investment in IT, electricity and gas usage have been lowered as well as the firm’s mileage.

Ewan McClymont, Director at Bishop Fleming commented, “Environmental credentials are becoming increasingly important in business and our ability to measure these metrics is a strong differential in a competitive market.  With electricity and gas kWh down 4.6% per employee and mileage per £000 income down 14.5%, we are delighted that our environmental credentials continue to move in a positive direction. 

“The fact that Bishop Fleming’s environmental performance has improved in each measured area as the firm has grown, demonstrates our commitment to the firm’s environmental responsibilities and this is something we are extremely proud of.”
