At Talking Life, we recognise that we have social, ethical and environmental responsibilities.
We are working hard to reduce our impact on the environment. These range from switching off lights, computers and equipment and making our offices energy-efficient.
We are currently working hard to create a paper free office environment. This means we are cutting down on printing workbooks for training and asking delegates to use smart phones or tablets to view our workbooks on-line. (this also alleviates the need to courier our workbooks the training venues). We are introducing a new CRM system so that billing, accounts and bookings can all proceed without the need for printing any documents.
We always try to use trainers local to the area to avoid unnecessary travel and we avoid using air travel at all as a means of transport. Wherever possible we arrange meetings by video conference.
One of our Directors is a founding member of Friends of Hoylake & West Kirby Beaches, a voluntary group which aims to help preserve one of The Wirral’s most important amenities for the local community. The beaches are already an important habitat for birds and for one of only two habitats for the Natterjack Toad. Volunteers monitor the beaches, helping to keep them free from plastic and other waste and also from invasive grasses. Talking Life’s offices are sited only yards from Hoylake Beach.
