We have a highly visible presence at the heart of urban life and we understand how our business activities impact upon the environment. We take our responsibilities to reduce our environmental footprint throughout all areas of our work very seriously and innovate consistently to improve.

Energy consumption

The energy consumption of our furniture, vehicles and buildings represents our main environmental impact. The measures put in place aim to reduce this consumption by improving the energy efficiency of our products and services.


One of our most notable achievements in this area is that in the carefully controlled and quality-driven development of our small format digital products, we have managed to significantly reduce electricity consumption. 

In order to maximise impact for advertising clients, the display size of our digital screens increased from 65˜ to 75˜ displays. Recent tests demonstrate that through utilising its worldwide supply chain, with a focus on sustainability, we have managed to reduce the average energy consumption of the larger digital 6-sheet screens by more than 45%.

Other environmental impacts

As well as energy consumption, Life-Cycle Analysis of our products since 2011 has enabled us to identify our other significant environmental impacts.

Factors such as paper used in our posters, the plastic used in our posters and canvas, other waste in particular waste from electrical and electronic equipment and the use of water for cleaning our furniture and vehicles.

Zero waste to landfill

The Stratford Sail was our first large format digital display to be fully recycled on decommission and and is the perfect example of how we deliver on our sustainability pledges, with zero waste to landfill.


100% green renewable energy
