Environmental Compliance Statement

Fisse Design – 2016

Fisse Design looks holistically at the lifecycle of our resources and products and is constantly looking at ways to reduce our products environmental footprint. The overall approach of Fisse Design management and staff is to make a positive contribution to the community and minimise our environmental impacts.

Fisse Design’s view in regard to environmental management focuses on three pillars:

  • Compliance
  • Environmental risk minimisation
  • Best practice

Compliance

Like most companies, Fisse Design would rather resolve issues through consultation and cooperation than through additional regulation. Our emphasis on compliance is therefore on prevention, with a key element involving the establishment of good relationships with the communities in which we operate.

Fisse Design has a solid framework for environmental management and compliance that provides a basis for continual improvement and innovation.

Risk Minimisation

Our second key focus area is around risk minimisation, specifically in the areas of ground water and soil contamination within our town office location. Our choice of biodegradable detergent and cleaning products, recycled and natural building materials and plant based paints

Best Practice Resource Use

The third pillar of environmental management is centred on resource use with specific references to energy, waste and water. Most of our resource consumption occurs at our Narooma Fisse Design office and conference facility. We are able to reduce our use of resources through the daily monitoring of equipment, leading to timely identification of issues and quick repair or modifications.

Our response to climate change is best demonstrated under this third pillar. We understand that climate change is an issue of concern and importance to stakeholders and has a particularly high profile. We are able to mitigate against climate change impacts through our identification and management of best practice resource use including reducing water consumption, waste and energy.

Water

The majority of the water used is sourced from municipal or shire water suppliers.

As part of our Strata office complex we are utilising communal sanitary facilities with dual flush systems as well as collecting water in two rainwater tanks to use in such facilities and gardens.

Energy Consumption

The main areas of focus are lighting, heating, ventilation and air conditioning. Electricity and water consumption at Fisse Design offices is kept low due to implementation of energy and water saving systems.

We have changed our energy provider to the highest rated ‘Green’ energy retailer in our region. The installation of energy efficient insulation, LED lighting, heating and cooling appliances in both the offices and the conference room are playing a vital part in our energy reduction efforts.

Greenhouse Gas Emission

Electricity used at the Fisse Design offices represents the main energy source, and the largest contributors to our greenhouse gas emissions. The insertion of energy efficient power boards, electricity timers combined with a ‘go home, lights out’ policy and five star energy rating appliances are further initiatives Fisse Design management and staff have adopted.

The use of up-cycled office furniture and natural building materials like timber representing the recognition Fisse Design gives Greenhouse Gas Emissions and their impact on climate change.

Waste and Recycling

The majority of the company’s waste is generated at our office and conference facility. The two major waste streams are general waste and prescribed waste. We recycle where possible with recyclable materials including cardboard, paper, printer cartridges, IT hardware, plastics and aluminium cans and bottles.

By using the following programs, you will help recovery of valuable resources through the recycling process and prevent waste to landfill.

Bring IT Back – Recycle old IT equipment with Office Works.

The Bring IT Back program aims to keep old computers and computer accessories out of landfill. I.T. waste collected through this program is sent to recyclers where up to 98% of the material in the devices is recovered and recycled. Customers can bring in up to 5 items for recycling, including desktops, laptops, computer mice, monitors, printers, scanners, multifunction printers, keyboards, computer power supplies, printed circuit boards, motherboards, network cards, disks and CD drives.

Cartridges 4 Planet Ark – Return empty ink & toner cartridges to a Australia Post store.

Recycling station boxes are located in all our stores so you can safely recycle your used ink and toner cartridges. Recycling ink and toner cartridges diverts waste from landfill, saves water and energy, and reduces greenhouse gases.

Mobile Muster – at Australia Post store.

The Mobile Muster program – the Australian mobile phone industry’s official product stewardship program. Working together with Mobile Muster, this free recycling service aims to keep old mobile phones, batteries and accessories out of landfill, and recycle them to the highest environmental standards.

Adrian and his team are simply amazing. We are an existing business and our old website was out of date and quite complex. We spoke to a few designers but Adrian stood out for being wonderful to talk to (I actually understood what he was saying!) and making the entire process so simple, along with working to our budget. The team created an amazing new site, on schedule, on budget and kept us up to date the whole way through. I had been in fear of getting this done but have already let them know our new business will be getting set up through them without a doubt!

We recently had Fisse Design build our website www.whalemotorinn.com - excellent service and we are very happy with the outcome. For example, easy navigation, great look and feel and all of the pictures and content that we wanted to reflect what our business is about. Most of all Fisse Design was able to capture the essence of our vision and our reason for being in the site. Thanks Adrian and Sarah - Matt & Jen

I asked Fisse Design to do our web page and facebook. From the minute i waked in to door Adrian and Sarah were friendly, warm, professional and very easy to deal with. For someone like me who knows very little about the process, they both made it so easy. Thank you. Would highly recommend.

I am the new manager at Horizon Holiday Apartments in Narooma. I initially contacted Fisse Design to organise a revamp of the Horizon legacy website with a view to provide a new site in 2018. The professionalism, knowledge and design ability of the staff at Fisse Design is absolutely fantastic. As it turned out, the legacy website had many broken links and instead of a revamp, Fisse Design provided us with a complete new website to meet our initial needs within a 1 week period which is just an amazing outcome. We could not be happier with the service that Fisse Design has provided us and we look forward to working closely with Fisse Design in 2018 to build a more informative and guest focussed website with lots of additional information. I thank Fisse Design for everything you have done for us. I honestly believe that there would not be a better web designer/developer in Australia that would work with you so closely and ensure the client receives exactly what is asked for. Well done Fisse Design and thank you so very much. Narelle @ Horizon Holiday Apartments.

Right from our first design brief with Adrian, everything seemed to feel like it was going to be "too easy". Our area of expertise is everything bicycle & Adrian is all about website design. Bring the two together & we now have a slick web page, thats easy to update, looks great on any platform & our business digital presence has soared in performance.

We were recommended to Adrian through friends and couldn't be happier with the results so far. We have engaged with Fisse Design to host, redesign and optimize our site on the internet.

Early days but already seeing results. Highly Recommended.

We asked Fisse design to build us a new website last year for Oakleigh farm cottages and were really impressed with how Adrian really wanted to get to know us and the business first, so that he fully understood what we needed. We wanted a modern, sophisticated, mobile-responsive design that was user-friendly, really ranked well and integrated our booking system and that is exactly what we got. It's been working really well for us and Adrian is always there with support, ongoing updates and general advice on the online presence of our business. Always approachable, easy to get on with and adaptable. Highly recommended

After about 7 years using Ebay exclusively to sell our product, we decided that it was time to have our own website but did not know where to start. We found Fisse Design via google, discussed our needs with Adrian and he came up with a website that was beyond our expectations. Initially we required a website that linked our viewers back to our Ebay online Store, however after 12 months we decided to run our website and Ebay separately and had Adrian design a shopping cart. The website has gone from strength to strength due to Adrian's help and advice. We could not be happier with the website and Adrian has set it up so as we can change product, blog and upload images etc. We have no hesitation in recommending Fisse Design to anyone.

We got Fisse Design to redevelop our website and make it stand above our competition. For us the biggest asks were for it to rank well on Google, for the site to look great (on mobile phones too) and to hook it up with our bookings system. I trialled a few bookings systems until I found the right one for me, and Adrian got it to work with all of them. He did the lot and we simply couldn’t be happier. He did it for a great price and now he’s hosted it for over 2 years without one hiccup. As for the search engines, almost immediately we saw the effect of his optimisation work and over the weeks and months we enjoyed #1 , #2 and #3 rankings for all of our main search keywords. He also gave us some sound advice and a basic online marketing strategy which we followed - and it has all simply worked! Anytime I’ve got a problem, he sorts me out. Absolute legend, highly recommended.
