"We have dedicated recycling bins and are trying to reduce paper waste."
First year trainee, London
"Committed environmental team introducing systemic changes (eg recycling bins in every coffee pod) but the environment is not at the forefront of everyone's mind (though with systemic change this is gradually improving as everyone gets used to always recycling, for example)."
