Strident Ltd Achieves the Green100 Award

We are proud to announce that Trading for Good member Strident Ltd is one of 100 businesses to be honoured with a Green100Award.

This award from Archant recognises the greenest 100 businesses across Suffolk and Norfolk, those that go the extra mile to help protect our environment and we would like to congratulate all the other recipients.

Despite a reliance on power-hungry IT, modern businesses are finding it easier to ‘Go Green’ if they work with a business like ours that takes its environmental responsibilities very seriously. In addition to specifying energy efficient IT for our clients, we practice what we preach with a carbon neutral office and helping others become reduce their energy use and carbon emissions.

Our workplace is environmentally friendly.
Claydon Court offers high spec, character-rich and carbon-balanced offices. Our offices are well-insulated, use efficient LED lighting, heat-pump HVAC and CAT 5 cabling. Operated by 'Neutral Territory', a business focused on providing high quality, carbon neutral offices, we have dedicated cycle facilities and even loan bikes to encourage staff to leave the car at home. Planting in and around the offices creates a good working environment while a flower growing in the courtyards gardens adds a little friendly competition.

Supporting the Community
We encouraged all our customer to move over to paperless billing and remove the carbon associated with printing and posting. We rewarded them by planting trees on their behalf through leading local environmental charity, World Land Trust. Strident is also a sponsor with the local Colchester Rugby Club and Eight Ash Green Cricket Club. Our sponsorship helps these clubs work with their members and the local community to promote their sports and encourage young players to develop. The promotion of healthy sports sits well alongside our green commitments. See for yourself at CRFC<http://www.colchesterrugby.co.uk/> and EAGCC<http://www.eagcc.com/default.aspx>.

 We provide the greenest equipment
We recently reduced our three servers to just one, taking advantage of new technology to help us become faster and greener. We work with our customers to provide energy efficient IT hardware that helps them keep their energy costs down as well as advise on how IT can be used to drive sustainable improvements in all operational areas. Strident is also a Suffolk Low Carbon Charter holder at Gold level and we recently worked with our customers to participate in the Low Carbon KEEP Capital Grant Scheme to help them to switch over to low carbon IT solutions.
