/OUR_ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY/

The management and staff of Tarsus Technologies are committed to reducing its impact on the environment. We will strive to improve our environmental performance over time and to initiate additional projects and activities that will further reduce our impact on the environment.

The key points of its strategy to achieve this are:

    Energy

  • Purchase Energy Star® rated equipment and appliances

  • Hibernate or switch to sleep mode any IT equipment not in use for short periods of time

  • Use low-energy lighting

  • Use electric lighting only when necessary in favour of natural lighting

  • Switch off all geysers in the bathrooms and kitchens

  • Utilise occupancy sensors which automatically switch off lights when areas are not in use

  • Utilise solar energy to power outside lights at night

    Health

  • Use cleaning products that are biodegradable and not tested on animals

  • Properly discard toxic materials and products that contain themResources

  • Harvest rainwater and grey water which will be utilised to water the grounds

  • Actively promote recycling both internally and to Tarsus’ customers

  • Use electronic or digital communications, before using paper-based communications like faxes or printed copies

  • Provide an e-Waste container for both internal use and Tarsus’ customers to dispose of IT equipment responsibly

The company will implement a training programme for its staff to raise awareness of environmental issues and enlist their support in improving the company’s performance. Tarsus will encourage the adoption of similar practices by its suppliers.
