Environmental Policy for Classroom365
Classroom365 is committed to environmental stewardship, recognising the importance of protecting the natural environment while conducting business activities. In line with UK environmental regulations and standards, we aim to reduce our ecological footprint by responsibly managing our resources and operations.
We will actively promote recycling internally and amongst our customers and suppliers. We shall facilitate the recycling of ICT-related hardware through certified recycling companies to ensure compliance with the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE Directive 2012/19/EU) as transposed into UK law.
We shall adhere to all relevant environmental legislation at local, national, and international levels, including, but not limited to, the UK Environmental Protection Act 1990, the Carbon Reduction Commitment Energy Efficiency Scheme, and the Climate Change Levy.
We will strive to use materials that are recyclable and environmentally friendly in all our operations as stipulated under the EU’s Ecodesign Directive (2009/125/EC), ensuring products are designed with energy efficiency and reduced environmental impact in mind.
Reducing Carbon Footprint:
We encourage the use of public transport by our staff to decrease pollution and carbon emissions, in line with the UK Government’s encouragement of public transport use to reduce traffic emissions and meet carbon reduction targets under the Climate Change Act 2008.

Conservation of energy and water will be actively managed by the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS), and we shall endeavour to minimise waste in our business operations as per the principles of the Waste (England and Wales) Regulations 2011.
The company will engage with employees to generate innovative ideas to enhance environmental performance, allocating the necessary financial and human resources to implement sustainable practices effectively.
Review and Auditing:
- We will review our Environmental Policy and practices regularly to ensure continual improvement, adhering to the guidelines of the ISO 14001 Environmental Management Systems.
- Periodic audits will be conducted to assess the effectiveness of our environmental practices and to identify areas for further improvement.
By integrating these environmental processes, Classroom365 aims to not only comply with regulatory requirements but also to foster transparency and efficiency, thereby reducing environmental risks and enhancing our environmental impact.
This policy will be communicated to all staff and stakeholders, ensuring widespread understanding and commitment to our environmental objectives.
