We are committed to reducing the environmental impact of our business and are monitoring our carbon emissions to better understand our direct impact. We recognise that good environmental management is an integral part of any business and our current priorities are energy performance, corporate travel and waste and recycling.
To date we’re making an impact by:
- Setting buildings to use localised air conditioning/heating so that entire office systems can be switched off at weekends, resulting in huge savings in consumption; and installing motion sensor lighting in all offices where practicable
- Establishing videoconferencing links between all global sites to reduce business air travel. Following the roll-out to global sites, we aim to provide external videoconferencing facilities to enable more efficient communications with non-Betfair locations
- Promoting a ‘Ride2Work’ cycle scheme which allows employees to purchase bikes interest free, and at a discounted rate
- Recycling all paper, glass, cardboard, plastic, cans, printer cartridges and redundant IT equipment where possible.
