Environmental costs of cheques
We would also kindly ask you to consider the environmental impact of sending us payment by cheque. In order for a cheque to be safely sent from you to us, it requires paper, packaging, courier and/or delivery services. Even sourcing paper from renewable sources (for the cheques, envelopes and their packaging) still requires considerable energy to manufacture and then transport to your site. Once a cheque arrives with us we then have to fill in multiple forms and have these transported to our bank, who use more energy to process and archive them, finally clearing the payment with the originating bank electronically.
Electronic fund transfer (Wire or Bank transfer) is our preferred method of payment, being faster, more secure and very importantly auditable - sadly postal services do regularly incur losses and delays, which ultimately impact on the services and products that we are able to offer our clients.
