ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY

Introduction

Rapid Relocate believe that our performance as an alternative accommodation provider, primarily to the insurance industry, will be measured not only by our profitability as a business but also by our impact on the environment. External stakeholder expectations in this area are increasing. Meeting these expectations and our regulatory and legal obligations will require us to report on our progress to protect the environment, implement actions that reduce our impacts, engage and involve our staff and report on our environmental activities. We also have a responsibility to work with our suppliers to minimise the environmental impact of our supply chain thus we have a separate Sustainable Procurement Policy to which we ask our suppliers to subscribe. This policy outlines the approach that will be taken in order to ensure that natural resources are used prudently, that there is effective protection of the environment whilst ensuring the efficient use of resources and delivery of long term value for money for the company and our business sector as a whole.
