Walk Softly On The Land
"If you do not keep the ground clean, I will take everything away from you, and you will be miserable."
The Creator's Warning to Wisakedjak in an Algonquin Indian Legend
Climate change is a real, present, and urgent global issue.
To mitigate our contribution to this problem, The Lanigan Group has adopted the traditional North American First Nations' policy of walking softly on the land and have applied it to our business:
- We have reduced our direct level of emissions (e.g. due to energy consumption) by the amount specified in the Kyoto Accord;
- We recycle all consumables employed in our business (including print cartridges) so that we do no further harm to the environment;
- Wherever feasible, we purchase products for our business that are environmentally friendly, or are made with recyclable materials;
- We annually review both the direct and indirect level of emissions caused by our actitivies (e.g. business travel) and offset 100% of them by funding the equivalent development of renewable energy generation facilities;
We recommend that everyone walks softly on our global land.
