Environmental Policy


As part of being a responsible business, we are committed to doing everything we can to manage our business activities to reduce our environmental impact and inspire our people to lead more sustainable lives. This policy applies to all Arc Hospitality Recruitment Solutions Ltd employees, team members, agency staff and third parties who undertake activity on behalf of Arc.

Arc functions in the hospitality industry, with over 30 employees across five offices located nationwide. Arc recognise that its activities impact the environment in a number of ways, principally through our use of energy, waste generation, and business travel.

In recognition of this, Arc is committed to protecting the environment and continually improving its environmental performance by:

    • Measuring and taking action to reduce the carbon footprint of our business activities to meet our published objectives and targets (we’re aiming to achieve net zero emissions by 2025).
    • Understanding Arc’s scope 1, 2 and 3 carbon emissions and what we can do to have the greatest impact on reducing our footprint.
    • Choosing high-quality carbon offsets for any remaining emissions that we cannot reduce.
    • Reduce energy consumption across our offices through staff awareness and improved controls.
    • Purchasing renewable energy where available.
    • Maximising recycling of the waste in our offices through weighing and tracking recycling vs general waste, staff awareness and minimising waste by providing guidance on responsible procurement.
    • Encouraging green journeys for our Team Members and employees.
    • Implementing a dedicated Environmental Management System (ISO 14001).
    • Ensuring compliance with all relevant legislation and standards, and the expectations of our customers and other key stakeholders.

Arc is committed to engaging with stakeholders, including communicating internally and externally our environmental policy and performance at least annually. This is achieved through our annual Impact Report, and our existing communication channels to employees including our publicly-shared Impact Strategy, our business plan, team briefings, and the Team Member and employee induction process.

This policy and the actions arising from it will be annually reviewed as part of the business planning process, which involves Arc senior leadership and management teams, with approval via the Arc Board.
