Purpose beyond profit

 

Our sustainability strategy is unique to our business and reflects and strengths and culture

 
We are voicing a purpose beyond profit. Our sustainability strategy sets out the change that we want to achieve in the world, our passion and our reason for being. Our purpose answers the question: why does our company exist?

As a business we are committed to playing our part in creating a sustainable future for all.

We are contributing by embedding a circular economy ethos into our people and processes.


 

Our initiatives


Zero waste to landfill policy

We actively support the purpose of the WEEE directive in the re-use of redundant equipment through our resale and rebate scheme. It is our objective to remarket all WEEE collected. If not feasible, any remaining WEEE is recycled here in the UK with all raw materials harvested for reuse.  Rapid IT has always guaranteed 0% landfill and does not export any none working WEEE.


Climate Positive Workforce

We are members of the Ecologi Climate Positive Workforce. By the planting of trees, we are offsetting the entire carbon footprint of each employee, including emissions from their home, personal travel, holidays, food, hobbies and more.


Cycle to work scheme

We encourage our employees to get out of cars and onto bikes with the dual purpose of improving both health and wellbeing as well as reducing the environmental impact of pollution and congestion from cars.
