Vero Screening, the leading pre-employment screening & criminal record checking company, have made themselves carbon neutral during a recent environmental review of their business at their Head Office in Brighton, on the South Coast.
The company, who are well known within the HR community for their innovative and hi-tech approach to managing pre-employment screening & criminal record checking, have calculated their carbon emissions for 2010 and made a donation to JP Morgan’s Climate Care programme, a leading carbon offset initiative.
Managing Director of Vero Screening, Rupert Emson, said of the project: “As a company, we have always been environmentally aware but our recent ‘greening’ project has highlighted some further efficiency we could make. As well as being a paperless office and giving company bicycles to our staff, we think it’s really important to offset the carbon that our business creates and, by working with JP Morgan Climate Care, we can be confident that they will invest our donation into a range of projects aimed at reducing the effects of harmful carbon emissions.”
Vero Screening currently manage a wide range of pre-employment screening programmes for over 200 clients across the UK, ranging from call centres to commercial law firms, and financial services companies to retailers.
