Our pledge of being climate conscious doesn’t stop in the office. Our projects with supermarkets allow us to demonstrate how they can become more energy efficient. From the initial design process we aim to use green products as much as possible. As consultants we’re going out to the marketplace to see what the next best thing is in terms of equipment for energy saving. Our company policies and actions are designed to reduce our CO2 footprint, and encourage the protection of the environment. By using ‘green suppliers’ our vendors doing business with Abbey Design Associates must adhere to environmentally friendly practices. Plus, as stewards of the environment, it is our policy that all waste is disposed of using a certified process called ‘true disposal’ rather than landfilling which means that every item disposed is recycled.
