Cordless Consultants business is to provide our clients with exceptional technology design solutions and an excellent level of service. We aim to do this through a culture of creativity, innovation, knowledge and practicality. We work hard to infuse our environmental efforts with a similar spirit. We recognise the importance of the environment and the effect we can have on it, both as individuals within our own working environment and within our projects for clients. We understand that the product of our role as technology designers and consultants has a considerable impact on the environment. We are committed to the protection of the environment and recognise the importance of incorporating environmental issues into every day business decisions and activities. We believe that the effectiveness of our environmental approach is through a company culture that fundamentally believes that we can have less impact on the environment in the way that we behave and what we do.
