环保政策

背景

IOP 出版有限公司(“IOP”)认识到对环境的责任,因而致力于为减少当地、国家以及全球环境损害作出贡献。 IOP的全体董事们认为,IOP应当提高环保意识,因而,制定了本“环保政策”。本政策列出了IOP 将采取的行动以减少其业务活动对环境的影响,并以此来推广良好的环保做法。

本政策将随着公司业务发展以及技术更新而得到修改。它只是我们强调环保意识、鼓励员工评估其业务活动对环境的影响 以及寻求控制此类影响的第一步举措。

IOP致力于:

  1. 保护能源,如其能源政策(见下文A)所述的那样,在工作中尽可能地使用可再生能源和材料;
  2. 遵守相关法律法规的要求(见下文B);
  3. 尽力防止出现污染(见下文C);
  4. 鼓励所有员工提高环保意识,为环保担起更多责任(见下文D);
  5. 在出版业开发环保问题解决方案时,尽可能地给予协助(见下文E);
  6. 鼓励员工尽可能地使用绿色交通方式(见下文F);
  7. 维护环保政策、程序及制度;
  8. 提高环保业绩。

为了做到这些方面, IOP决心:

  1. 通过改善能效及尽量使用可再生能源的方式,减少使用能源;
  2. 定期审议本政策,以便及时按照立法的修改和最佳实践对其作出调整;
  3. 通过减少消费和污染并开发有效的废料管理和回收程序的方式,尽量减少废料;
  4. 确保所有员工都有机会能够起到积极主动的作用,以贯彻和发展环保政策;
  5. 与IOP供应商合作,落实良好环保做法;
  6. 除为残疾人提供便利之外,也为骑自行车的人创造条件,鼓励员工更多地步行、骑自行车或坐公共交通工具上班。

到目前为止,IOP为此已经在下列方面取得了良好成绩:

  1. 用水——定期检视公司的用水状况,以便尽量利用切实可行的方式减少用水。
  2. 用气和用电——定期检视公司用煤气和电力的状况,以便尽量利用切实可行的方式减少煤气和电力的使用。
  3. 废纸板回收——在全公司实行积分制以促进回收硬纸板。
  4. 废纸回收——给员工发放专用回收箱,回收废纸。
  5. 清洁剂产品——IOP力争越来越多地使用环保型清洁剂产品。
  6. 员工承诺与参与——IOP专门成立了一个环保意识小组(详情请参见下文),定期开会讨论各类与环保相关的问题以及提高员工环保意识的各种方法。
  7. 绿色交通——IOP积极鼓励员工骑自行车上班或尽量利用公共交通工具上班。公司专门为骑自行车的员工提供了停车处和更衣设施。公司还为所有员工提供打折公共汽车票。
  8. 电子邮件声明——所有发出的电邮上均附有一个声明,提请收件者在决定是否要将电子邮件打印出来时,考虑环保问题。
  9. 碳冲抵——IOP对其员工出国出差坐飞机作出详细记录,并根据记录统计的数量,对采取措施减少二氧化碳污染环境的公司作出捐款。

产品和服务的提供:

  1. 以IOPscience形式,仅提供电子版刊物服务,供阅览IOP的内容,IOPscience 可以节约纸张以及在印刷期刊过程中需要使用的其他资源。
  2. 承诺持续提供传统的网上资料,同时,通过采纳类似于兴趣组网站(包括基于环境科学的一个兴趣组的网站(environmentalresearchweb.org))那样的新举措,探索新方式提供电子版的当今内容。
  3. 缩小一部分IOP刊物的版面尺寸,在线上刊物登载那些读者希望从网上打印出来的专题文章,以达到节约的目的。
  4. 环保意识小组
  5. 建立一个环保意识小组(下称“小组”)以制定环保举措。小组针对能源保护、回收和其他相关问题制定最佳做法建议指南,并在总体上监督本政策的制定执行情况。小组很愿意接受员工的建议。

Environmental Policy

Background

IOP Publishing Limited (“IOP”) recognizes its environmental responsibilities and is committed to contributing to the reduction of local, national and global environmental damage. The Directors of IOP have agreed that IOP should increase its environmental awareness and have drawn up this environmental policy. It sets out the actions that IOP will take to reduce the environmental impact of its activities and promote environmental good practice.

This policy will be subject to change as the business develops and may be influenced by technological changes. It is meant to be the first step in heightening environmental awareness, encouraging staff to assess the environmental impacts arising from their activities and seeking ways of controlling those impacts.

IOP is committed to:

  1. conserving energy and giving preference to renewable sources of energy and materials wherever reasonably practicable, as referred to in its Energy Policy (see A below)
  2. complying with applicable legal requirements and regulations (see B below)
  3. doing as much as it can to prevent pollution (see C below)
  4. encouraging all of its staff to improve their awareness of the environment and to become more environmentally responsible (see D below)
  5. assisting, wherever reasonably practicable, in the development of solutions to environmental problems in the publishing industry (see E below)
  6. encouraging its staff to use green methods of transport, wherever possible (see F below)
  7. maintaining environmental policies, procedures and systems
  8. improving environmental performance

To achieve this, IOP aims to:

  1. reduce its use of energy through improvements to energy efficiency and the substitution, wherever reasonably practicable, to renewable energy sources
  2. review this policy regularly to take into account changes to legislation and best practice

To date, IOP has made the following achievements in this regard:

  1. Water consumption — Regular review of company's consumption to monitor any practical ways of reducing the same.
  2. Gas and electricity consumption — Regular review of company's consumption to monitor any practical ways of reducing the same.
  3. Cardboard recycling — Collection points within company for disposal of cardboard waste.
  4. Paper recycling — Members of staff given bin specifically for disposal of recyclable paper.
  5. Cleaning Products — IOP strives to use an increasing amount of environmentally friendly cleaning products.

  8. E-mail disclaimer — Disclaimer attached to all outgoing e-mails asks recipient to consider the environment when deciding whether to print hard copies of e-mails.
  9. Carbon offsetting — IOP records details of overseas business flights taken by its staff and makes a financial donation, based on those figures, to a company that takes steps to limit the potentially harmful effects of carbon dioxide emissions on the environment.

Product and service offerings:

  1. Provision of electronic-only services to view IOP content in the form of IOPscience, which will help to save paper and other resources used in the production process for printed journals.
  2. Commitment to continued provision of historic online content, and new ways of providing current content, in electronic format, through initiatives like community websites (including one based on environmental science, see environmentalresearchweb.org).
  3. Reduction in page sizes for a number of IOP journals to make savings where readers prefer to print articles from the online journal.
  4. Environmental Awareness Group
  5. An Environmental Awareness Group (the “Group”) exists to develop environmental initiatives. The Group will issue guidelines on recommended best practice concerning energy conservation, recycling and other relevant issues and generally keep the policy under review. It is always pleased to receive suggestions from staff.
