K10 is recognised and awarded for being ‘green’

Green Mark- logo2014-level2

Green Mark is a tailored environmental accreditation scheme. Level 1 requires organisations to identify and address environmental impacts, comply with environmental legislation and demonstrate good practice. In addition to this, Level 2 requires organisations to develop and implement an Environmental Management System (EMS). An EMS brings together in a cohesive manner the actions required for an organisation to monitor and maintain its environmental credentials in order to reduce the impact it has.

The Brundtland Report, October 1987 defined the meaning of sustainable development as:

“OUR COMMON FUTURE: development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”

Some of the best practice and actions we have introduced has resulted in the following:

  • Waste Hierarchy – promoting individual responsibility for adherence and consideration towards waste disposal
  • Target Setting, Monitoring and Reporting – specifically to reduce energy, water and recycling waste
  • Transport Policy – 100% of our team use public transport and 33% of our team cycle to work
  • Purchasing & Procurement Policy to ensure where possible we are procuring ethical and environmentally sound services – Earth is the brand management consultancy that worked on our re-brand. They specialise in creating and developing brands that have responsible business strategy at the core of their business model. When we moved to our Battersea office, Les Oakes & Sons who own and run an architectural reclamation yard made our furniture!
