We now Carbon Offset our non office electricity energy consumption via Climate Care. This is in addition to the use of green electricity. See our "Green" web page for the organisations we use as well as our Environmental Policy.
We were interviewed by the Financial Times for an article on Dynamic Pricing and motor insurance. We were quoted in the published article on 16 July 2005 called What a difference a day makes (opens a new window)

We have been busy assisting a partnership of 6 councils to understand their current waste management processes. This is a prelude to the creation of the UK's most ambitious integrated waste management organisation.
Currently waste collection is undertaken by district councils with waste disposal by county councils (unitary and metropolitan councils are different) . This usually means many different contracts with commercial waste companies (or in-house organisations). Each contractor will have its own local base but disposal sites may be many miles (kms) away and under the control of another contractor. Landfill sites are becoming full, necessitating additional unproductive travel time. Tough European Union waste minimisation and landfill targets are coming into force. A national trading scheme will allow unused landfill tonnes to be traded. Community recycling will involve a wide range of materials, much of it collected from households directly. For example, paper, tins, glass, clothing, plastics, garden waste, food waste, as well as other materials at waste collection points. This is going to result in the biggest change in waste management for 20 or more years. Large capital sums will be involved as well as new working methods. At the same time, in line with central government targets for all council services, costs need to be reduced. Managing Change is helping these councils meet the future with confidence.
We have added details of our Environmental Policy.
We have submitted a proposal to assist an environmental consultancy to conduct a Business Process Analysis project for a consortium of 6 local government councils.
Our Ethical Pricing Project (EPP) is proceeding well and there is still time to enter the prize draw.
The Chartered Institute of Marketing theme for 2005 is Ethics. Their January magazine The Marketer and their Shape the Agenda web site are entirely devoted to the topic. We have been discussing our own EPP with the CIM and there is certainly synergy. Await further annnoucements.
We are a founder of The Henley Management College Alumni E-Business Group. We have an open membership so do join us at our next event on Thursday 20 January 2005. The speaker is Dr Andy Stanford-Clark, "Master Inventor" from IBM Hursley, speaking on Broadband: Fast and Always On! (and everywhere). Come and hear the business benefits of a world that is "always on" and "always doing business". There is a buffet, networking and plenty of opportunity to ask questions. See you there!
Our What's On page has been extensively updated with events through-out 2005. Judging by the events list and the 'phone ringing it looks like 2005 will see the end of the post 9/11 and post dot.com recession.
