Mercia Fine Art is committed to the responsible use of resources and to reducing environmental impact. Sustainability remains a key factor in decision-making processes, through the responsible use of energy, minimising CO₂ emissions and continuously improving efficiency. New systems are built with the most energy-efficient technologies available, and recycled or disposed of properly at the end of their service lives.

To reduce CO₂ output and reduce climate change, renewable energy resources are employed wherever possible.

Data centres use the most modern, energy-efficient hardware eliminating excess heat, so they require less energy. Hosting systems allow the delivery of optimal performance at high loads, while also being able to reduce the total number of processors. Similarly, virtualisation enables the use of cloud servers. In addition to the servers themselves, cooling requires a considerable amount of energy. Finding more intelligent ways of cooling data centres is a top priority.

Reducing energy consumption is as important as sourcing sustainable energy. Regularly upgrading infrastructure helps to reduce energy loss during operation. By optimising IT, customer benefits are maximised while minimising environmental impact.

Once systems have reached the end of their service life, they are recycled and disposed of appropriately. Stakeholders are also encouraged to recycle at work. Wherever possible, materials are sorted and recycled accordingly.

Ethical Policy

Policy statement
Mercia Fine Art is committed to ensuring a high standard of ethical and environmental trade practices, including the provision of safe working conditions and the protection of workers’ rights, across its global businesses. Mercia Fine Art conducts his business in accordance with the provisions of this code of ethical policy (“the code”) and expects its suppliers to observe the code’s provisions and to demonstrate a similar commitment to an ongoing programme of ensuring and, where necessary, improving, ethical and environmental practices. This code of ethical policy protects the principles of the Ethical Trading Initiative base code and reflects the international standards set out in the International Labour Organisation Conventions.

Scope of the code
The code applies to all areas of Mercia Fine Art’s business and to his direct suppliers as well as to goods and services sourced. Mercia Fine Art requires all direct suppliers to observe the provisions of this code and requires that such suppliers, in turn, obtain similar compliance with its provisions from their suppliers. All parties to whom this code applies are required to comply with applicable national and international laws. Where the provisions of this code afford greater protection than national law, the terms of this code prevail.

Policy objective
The objectives of the code are:

  • to set out a clear statement of policy;
  • to promote the adoption and improvement of ethical practices globally;
  • to implement effective processes for improvement of trade practices.

Compliance with the code
Mercia Fine Art recognises that suppliers may not be able to achieve all the standards laid out in this code immediately but is willing to engage with suppliers who:

  • are able to demonstrate a responsible and transparent approach to their working and general practices;
  • have successfully undergone an appropriate audit or verification procedure in accordance with audit procedures which demonstrate compliance with core requirements;
  • have demonstrated an ongoing commitment to improving working and ethical standards.
