Environmental Policy

The environment and its associated climate crisis  is central to Aesthetica’s day-to-day practice. We are committed to providing a quality service in a manner that ensures a safe and healthy workplace for our employees and minimises our potential impact. We will operate in compliance with all relevant environmental legislation and we will strive to use pollution prevention and environmental best practices in all we do.

  • We integrate the consideration of environmental concerns and impacts into our decision making and activities.
  • We minimise our waste and then reuse or recycle paper, envelopes, ink cartridges and office supplies.
  • We minimise energy and water use and minimise the consumption of natural resources.
  • As far as is possible, we purchase products and services that do the least damage to the environment.
  • As far as is possible, we strive to reduce the use of disposible plastics.
  • We promote environmental awareness among our employees and encourage them to work in an environmentally responsible manner.
  • We post our magazines in paper or card envelopes.
  • Aesthetica is printed with vegetable-based ink, which reduces chemical wastage.
