MyExams is a software product created and operated by VICTVS Ltd (VICTVS).
VICTVS is a future-focussed, globally conscious company. As an organisation working internationally to support the education industry, we have a clear responsibility to account for and address the environmental impact of our work – both at a local and an international level. This is not easy to achieve. But as a company we do not expect easy answers to complex problems. We are committed to contributing to efforts to mitigate climate change and environmental destruction where possible. Wherever this is not possible, we will respond to any damaging effects on the world to the best of our ability.
Our UK head office is located in a Victorian mill constructed at the height of the Industrial Revolution. We are driven by a desire to benefit from the social and economic gains to be had from effective 21st century global trade, whilst harnessing the pioneering spirit of our forebears to address the most pressing issues facing our society today.
We have the benefit of technology, globally shared knowledge and expert advice, to help us create a working environment that benefit not only ourselves, but the next generation. We are driven to work with the same ingenuity and spirit of exploration that fuelled the Industrial Revolution, with the added advantages offered by modern technology and scientific data. This document sets out our approach to incorporating sustainability into our work.
This policy applies to all areas of work conducted by VICTVS, both in the UK and overseas.

This reporting is used to demonstrate the effectiveness of our operational approach on meeting targets for reducing negative environmental and social impacts. Our annual review of our performance against these KPIs is used to set targets for the forthcoming period.
Our Sustainability Measure is reviewed by senior management on a regular basis as part of our continual improvement process.
We share data from our Sustainability Measure with clients and staff to encourage awareness of sustainability issues as they pertain to our work and to demonstrate the value add of our work.
