Environment Policy

Fidessa, by its nature as a software product and services group, has a relatively minor negative environmental impact.

We meet legal and regulatory requirements, considering them as minimum acceptable standards to be exceeded wherever practical. We actively look for cost-effective ways of monitoring our environmental impact to ensure we operate with sustainability in mind.

For example we:

  • communicate and conduct business activities electronically to help reduce the waste we produce
  • minimise the use of paper in the office and seek to buy recycled and recyclable paper products
  • reuse and recycle where possible, particularly in the use of paper, plastics and electronic equipment
  • seek to reduce our consumption of energy
  • use 'energy save' mode on electronic equipment and use of energy saving lighting with auto-sensors in our offices
  • ensure our global datacentres are as environmentally friendly as possible, by using features such as cold/hot aisle management, high-efficiency chillers and ozone friendly suppressants
  • use video conferencing and network meeting facilities to minimise need for business travel
  • avoid unnecessary waste of resources
  • consider the environmental impact of any new products we intend to purchase
  • use environmentally friendly materials in office refurbishments
  • use licensed and appropriate organisations to dispose of waste
  • use suppliers who have appropriate documented policies and procedures

We monitor and improve where we can by:

  • monitoring our environmental performance
  • incorporating environmental factors into business decisions
  • increasing employee awareness
  • working with suppliers, contractors and sub-contractors to improve their environmental performance
  • producing an environmental report on an annual basis
