Environment & Sustainability - Our ethos

At PSI we are committed to understanding, managing, and monitoring the environmental and social impacts of our business. We foster integration of the principles of sustainable development into our business practice and we give the highest priority to health, safety and environmental management.

The paper we use

Forest Stewardship Council

FSC is an independent, non-governmental, not for profit organisation established to promote the responsible management of the world’s forests. Products carrying the FSC label are independently certified to assure consumers that they come from forests that are managed to meet the social, economic and ecological needs of present and future generations.

Promoting sustainability through our magazines

In terms of encouraging sustainability, PSI's titles cover many topics of interest to local and central government, such as Waste Management, Recycling, Green Driving and Renewable Energy. We strive to include the most up-to-date, informative and unbiased content, written by industry experts and environmental organisations.

Workplace Travel Planning

Our Workplace Travel Plan aims to minimise car journeys. This is reviewed every year in association with the local authority Epping Forest District Council. The primary objectives are to:

  • Reduce our carbon footprint
  • Reduce the demand for car parking
  • Reduce costs associated with parking provision
  • Reduce the number of employees travelling to work alone by car
  • Increase travel awareness and promote sustainable travel behaviour
  • Reduce travel costs for employer and employee
  • Promote the Company’s Corporate Social Responsibility within the community
