Jestico and Whiles gets to grips with bins
J+W is quite far down the path of greening its London office. The practice obtained ISO 14001 (Environmental Management System) four years ago and is measuring environmental impacts year on year. They have opted for deskside recycling, facilitated by user-friendly tripartite bins at every workstation, which looks infinitely more effective than the no-bin approach, adopted by EMAP, my employer.
Now the Green Team has developed an impressive matrix organised to follow the categories of BREEAM and the Code for Sustainable Homes. The aim is to embed practice-wide knowledge of sustainability in the design process.
