The way in which we impact the environment is an increasingly apparent issue, with more people than ever understanding the importance of how we look after it. At James Gibb we are always keen to explore new ways of reducing our impact on the environment.

On Wednesday 5th June 2019, it is World Environment Day, organised by the United Nations in a bid to raise awareness and the importance of today’s environmental issues. One way in which we aim to get involved with the day, and all year round, is our ‘Go Paperless’ initiative. We’re encouraging all our customers to sign up to receive their communications by email instead of by post, to help save the amount of paper and envelopes we go through each year, the numbers of which are significant. On average, we send out 72,000 invoices annually, equating to around 2 tons of paper and envelopes a year!


Do your bit for the environment and sign up to Go Paperless today, it only takes a minute! Find out more about the initiative below.
