Find out about our projects across the world.
- Greening our services
In February 2010, FCO Services joined with the FCO to sign up to the national 10:10 campaign which commits us to reduce our overall carbon emissions by 10% by the end of 2010.
- Working in partnership
The FCO needed reliable and resilient IT communications channels protected to the highest standards of security. We answered their request.
- Cost savings by creating space
Working smarter in open plan offices leads to cost savings.
- Combining safety and value for money
Having two systems for incident alarms and public address meant that embassies abroad were having to operate two separate systems in the event of an incident. This meant a slower response, and they were not as cost effective because there were two separate systems to maintain.
- Interpreting on the world stage
International events don‘t stand still, and Governments must be able to respond quickly to them.
- Worldwide networks
With communications now global, organisations need to be confident that they can share information securely with colleagues around the world.
- When the earth shook
When the earthquake struck in China in 2008, we assisted the local community to ensure they could safely access their homes and offices.
- Measuring global carbon
When your estate or business is based in different locations worldwide, collecting data on your carbon footprint can prove a challenge.
- Speeding up security checks
A new online application system for security clearance checks is helping to speed up the process of National Security Vetting.
- Equal choices for young people
Equal Choices is a programme which addresses under-representation of minority groups within the local workforce near Milton Keynes.
