Bishopsgate Copywriting is committed to operating as sustainably as possible. Our sustainability journey is an ongoing one. These are some of the things we’ve done so far:

99% paper-free office – almost nothing gets printed. All quotes, work drafts and invoices are sent to clients electronically. No direct mail is sent out. We undertake all promotional activity for the business online.

Travel – this is a home-based business in Kent. There are none of the carbon emissions that would normally result from commuting to an office. Almost all meetings with clients take place online. This helps to reduce pollution.

Food waste – copywriters do drink quite a lot of coffee! All coffee-grounds, as well as fruit and vegetable peelings, are composted. The compost is then spread on our organic vegetable patch.

Another load for the compost bin

Energy use – all lighting in the office uses low-energy bulbs.

Charitable contributions – we are committed to protecting the natural environment. We support, and take great interest in, the excellent work done by Kent Wildlife Trust: https://www.kentwildlifetrust.org.uk/. From time to time, we provide copywriting services to certain charities at no cost.

Acting local – we endeavour to purchase business supplies and other services, wherever possible, from local vendors. This keeps the money circulating within the local economy. A financial investment has also been made by the business in the Kent wine industry. We hope to see our local wine industry develop further and flourish in the coming years.
