Our Green Policy
Here at Archer Yates Associates Ltd, our promise is to commit to the future and by doing this we commit to the environment.

Our promise to you is to be as sustainable as possible within the workplace. We have teamed up with the largest and most established certification programme Green Tourism, to show our commitment to the environment and exploit our efforts to going green in a local business. Green Tourism offers credible, trustworthy, independent guidance to tourism businesses wishing to operate sustainably.

We have been awarded the Silver award which means we;
- Share our values in going green to both staff and customers
- Use recycled products where possible as well as recycling to close the loop
- Source supplies from ethical suppliers and/or local area where we can and are working to green our whole supply chain
- Monitor resource use such as energy, water and waste to helping to deliver significant changes

We currently have a green co-ordinator who is working to reduce impacts in all key areas of our business. At all our events we promote our venues to respond to a suppliers screening questionnaire so that we can have a say in how sustainable our events can be. We promote sustainability where we see fit at most of our events we hold.
We promote the use of public transport to our delegates and provide them with information of how to be sustainable when travelling to our events, we also collaborate with our venue to make sure that we are being as green as possible during our events.
The majority of our events use up to date applications and technologies which help us improve on our sustainability, we also advise other event planners to do the same.

Tips for greening
