At E-Sign, we understand that no business is complete without its values; they guide the direction of the company, shape the aims and objective of your business and ensure your colleagues are working towards a shared vision.
Beyond this, a clear set of values allows E-Sign to give back to both our community and planet through our company initiatives and our focus on three main commitments: community, sustainability and environment. At E-Sign, we’re keen to contribute and support these areas anyway we can, whether that’s through our business operations, product sets or charity work.
Let’s take a closer look at E-Sign’s work in the community.
At E-Sign, we strongly believe that we should leave the planet in a better state than we found it. Our contributions to the environment are twofold; firstly, through the development of digital technology that reduces paper waste and secondly, by supporting local charities that protect the environment from plastic pollution and promote environmentalism.
We all know that plastic is damaging for the environment, it pollutes the land, sea and endangers animals out in the wild. Plastic Busters aim to protect our planet with the ‘RE’ strategy: REfuse, REduce, REuse, REpair, REfurbish, REmanufacture, REpurpose, REcycle and REcover.
At E-Sign, we’re proud to partner with Plastic Busters and have taken the Plastic Buster Pledge to reduce the use of plastic in our business, especially those pesky single use plastics that end up straight in the bin. As part of the Plastic Buster Pledge, we’ve even had our very own tree planted on our behalf by the good folks at Plastic Busters. Certainly a worthy cause to support.
As well as partnering with Plastic Busters, E-Sign also supports Unesco Biosphere Isle of Man. While E-Sign was founded in Liverpool back in 2012, we’ve since set up a second office in Douglas, Isle of Man. A cause close to the hearts of many of our employees, Unesco Biosphere Isle of Man helps to protect the unique and beautiful habitats on the Island, ensuring it remains a special place to work, live and explore.
This is why E-Sign have taken the Unesco Biosphere Pledge alongside other Manx businesses and organisations. As part of the Biosphere Pledge, we let the following considerations guide our decisions and the direction in which we shape our business:
At E-Sign, we very much practise what we preach when it comes to sustainability, using our own digital technology to all but eliminate our use of paper in our business operations. Indeed, E-Sign’s document management system is designed with digital transformation in mind, encouraging businesses to ditch inefficient paper processes and modernise their operations with our digital technology and e-signature capabilities.
Through digitalisation, businesses not only stand to benefit from enhanced productivity and cost-saving but also a more environmentally friendly way of doing business, reducing both paper consumption and waste and lowering the company’s carbon footprint.
As well as helping to protect our environment, E-Sign also aims to give back to our community, both in Liverpool and on the Isle of Man. To ensure that all our employees have the opportunity to engage in community work, each of our team members can choose a cause that is important to them and spend a minimum of two days per year giving back to their community.
In addition to this, we’re always keen to support our key workers and public sector organisations by offering free services and products, as well as expert advice on how to streamline their current operations with digital technology.
