Environmental Protection Policies
Being as a responsible translation company, our commitment to safety, security, and environmental protection is an initiative throughout our supply chain. The company offers an extensive network of linguistic services which encourage the use of printing paper, ink and letters, hence we are having a set of strict guidelines and procedures for paper handling.
In both headquarters and regions, senior managers are assigned the role of environmental protection officers. A set of procedures is also in place to control and manage the recycling procedures and all these comply with all international and HKSAR regulatory requirements and standards.
In addition, Spear makes extensive use of electronic communications in conducting its business, thus assisting in the conservation of natural resources. All employees are encouraged to recycle paper and to use the least amounts of natural resources, i.e. energy, water, paper, etc. SPEAR TRANSLATION is also a pioneer in the field of e-commerce thereby encouraging the advent of “paperless” trade and business. Additionally, Spear enforces a smoke-free office policy in all its workplaces. During the process of vendor and supplier selection, environmental issues are major considerations. Spear only works with suppliers that employs environmentally-friendly policies.
