Beattie Communications Goes Green

Beattie Communications will invest £100,000 this year on solar panels and energy conservation.

Our aim is to become one of the greenest marketing and communications groups in the world.

It's a bold ambition, but we feel it's important to walk the walk, not just talk the talk.

By generating our own green electricity and through energy conservation, we will cut our fuel bills and reduce our carbon footprint by 8 - 10%.

If every company followed our lead, just think how much of a difference we would make to the environment.

Glasgow company Absolute Solar & Wind has been awarded the contract to install a 10kwp solar energy system on the roof of Beattie Communications' Media Village at Falkirk in Scotland.

They will be installing over 50 solar panels and we expect the system to be fully operational by the end of March.

In addition to the solar panels, we are investing in a whole raft of conservation measures - energy-efficient lighting and office equipment and modern heating systems.

In addition, we are making more use of video and audio conferencing and most of our training programmes are now delivered remotely. That is producing a double whammy - it's cutting our carbon footprint and slashing unproductive travelling time.

We've done our sums and although it's an expensive upfront investment, we will receive a financial payback over time. In addition, it will have a significant immediate impact on the standing of the Beattie, Only and 11ten brands.
