Reclaim, Reuse, Repeat since 1991.
Salvo is a business which has continuously encouraged the reuse of reclaimed building material and architectural antiques, and has consistently considered the environment and the planet in everything it does. The company ethos is to minimise its environmental impact and maximise the amount of reuse.
Salvo meets or exceeds environmental regulations, laws and codes of practice, and is committed to the ethical values that guide the company. Only broad collaborations between committed companies and individuals will be able to make a difference given the existing environment challenges. We support developing solutions and business models that contribute to improving the environment, the economy and society.
Equipment: The company procures its office equipment salvaged, reclaimed or secondhand. Disposals are gifted responsibly, sent for recycling, or sold for a second life. SalvoWEB is hosted in the UK on carbon neutral servers.
Printing: The company business cards are printed on reclaimed greeting cards. It uses reclaimed paper stocks for printing. The company is paperless and reuses scrap and old paper when possible.
Offices: The company uses wind and solar power generated electricity in its offices. Air conditioning is not used. Natural habitats outside offices are respected – no pesticides, herbicides or fungicides are used. Suppliers and services are chosen which accord with Salvo’s environmental values as a high priority. Natural cleaning products are used in our offices.
Food and drink for business meetings is organic, fair trade, or locally sourced, scavenged or responsibly plucked from the wild.
Transport: Walking, cycling and use of buses and trains is encouraged. No employee comes to work by internal combustion engine car. Salvo mainly uses an electric car which is almost entirely run on renewable wind and solar energy.
This policy is reviewed and amended frequently and is openly available online, linked to SalvoWEB.
It is our individual and collective responsibility to demonstrate the environmental policy that guides Salvo. All staff are encouraged to add to the company’s values.
