Marketing Signals have committed to reduce emissions by 42% by 2030 and have committed to achieving Net Zero by 2035.

  • We support our clients to reduce their own emissions through highly efficient cloud-based computing.
  • We partner to offer our customers fully recycled laptops, and produce minimal waste across our own operations.
  • We have tracked our sustainability progress through annual Ecovadis assessments.
  • We signed the UN Global Compact in 2023 and track how our work contributes to the UN Sustainable Development Goals.


We are working to reduce our environmental impact. Our main impact on the environment is through using electricity in our home offices.
We are measuring the wider emissions that our activities create and are working with our customers to reduce their emissions.

We produce relatively little waste and are working with partners to recycle more.


We create apprenticeships and have a learning and development plan that improves the skills of our staff. We measure staff engagement through weekly surveys and have a Colleague Forum that provides ways for staff to share ideas with our Executive teams. We provide time for staff to volunteer and choose and support a charity each year.


We have a number of policies to ensure that we conduct our business with care and professionalism and provide our services on procurement frameworks. We are increasingly asking our suppliers to evidence due care in the sourcing and provision of goods and services to us.

Marketing Signals is committed to protecting the environment and endeavours to reduce its environmental footprint arising from our services, activities and products.

Environmental work is an integral part of the company’s activities and our Managing Director is responsible for ensuring that the company’s environmental policy is applied and that any existing actions planned are implemented.

To support this, we have implemented an Environmental Management System aligned to the requirements of ISO 14001:2015.


It is the responsibility of all line managers to;

  • Be familiar with this policy
  • Ensure this policy is upheld and applied consistently

It is the responsibility of employees to;

  • Be familiar with this policy
  • Ensure this policy is used as appropriate

It is the responsibility of HR to;

  • Maintain this policy and communicate any changes
  • Provide guidance
  • Ensure that this policy and procedure is implemented effectively, in a consistent and fair manner

Our impacts

Marketing Signals is committed to reducing the negative environmental impacts of our own services, activities and products, in particular those relating to:

  • Our data centre: computing equipment, energy usage, water usage, and waste
  • Our products and services: carbon footprint, customer equipment and the goods and services we choose for our offices: cleaning, furniture, stationery, and IT equipment
  • Our suppliers: travel, equipment, and waste
  • Our business: travel and those of our commuting colleagues

Our commitments

Marketing Signals is actively committed to being and remaining a sustainable business and always strives for energy efficient computing.

Through our Environmental Policy, we are committed to:

  • Ensuring environmental issues are considered in planning our business and managing our operations
  • Complying with requirements of environmental legislation and client standards where applicable, to meet our environmental obligations
  • Continually improving our environmental performance through the development and achievement of objectives and targets.
  • Providing the necessary training and guidance to employees and other workers to ensure they are fully aware of the company’s environmental policy and our environmental objectives and targets and are able to fulfil these commitments.
  • Preventing pollution of the environment and having procedures in place to deal with environmental accidents.
  • Reducing our energy use and carbon emission through our carbon reduction plan.
  • Achieving NetZero by 2035

The key areas of focus for reducing our impacts are:

Products and Services

  • Choosing suppliers who are recognised as being driven to lower their environmental impact through recycling, waste management or travel management
  • Recycling electrical equipment by use of a WEEE skip, which meets current legislation; re-selling mobile equipment to companies for re-use and donating computers and IT equipment to charity

Business Travel

  • Reducing the company’s carbon footprint from travel by promoting remote work and eliminating the commute, making use of technology, such as video conferencing and use of public transportation.

Home Offices

  • Training colleagues on the use of resources, with the aim to promote the recycling of paper, products, and equipment
  • Reducing electricity consumption through the installation of auto power-off lights within home offices; turning off computers at the end of the day and replacing existing light bulbs with energy efficient ones
  • Regulating heating and cooling by thermostats, to curtail energy wastage
  • Lowering paper consumption by sending invoices via e-mail or to portals.
  • Recycling office and customer paper waste by shredding; this reduces environmental impact – every ton of paper recycled can save 4,000 kw of energy, 26,498 litres of water and 17 trees. Every document securely destroyed is recycled, improving our organisation’s environmental footprint as well as preventing data theft
  • Lowering paper consumption by promoting correspondence via e-mail instead of by traditional post and requesting the recipient to consider the environment before printing the message
