Concern for the environment is also central to our operations and our aim is to reduce the impact on the environment from our operations. Our academies teach the importance of the impact we can have on the planet and the need for sustainability. We aim to reduce the use of energy and reduce waste, for example, we have invested in air source heat pumps and solar panels and are committed to reducing plastic waste.
