Working Environmentally Consciously, Without Compromise to a Recognised Standard, ISO14001
To demonstrate our continued commitment to the environment’s well being, our business activities for Environmental Management systems have been certificated for compliance with the internationally recognised standard ISO14001.
The company’s Environmental Management performance is monitored and continuously improved by our Green Team, which contains representatives from operational departments of our business. The team is also made up of members from our Health, Safety & Welfare Committee so that the regular meetings of both teams are held simultaneously. The team is lead by our SHEQ Manager.
Some members of our Green Team have passed the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health's Level 2 qualification in environmental protection as well as NEBOSH Environmental Management.
Our commitment to ISO14001 was recognised in a case study by the West Midlands Centre for Constructing Excellence, which you can see here.
We segregate and recycle as much waste as possible and continue to reduce our waste to landfill as a result of our ongoing participation in the WRAP halving Waste to Landfill campaign. We are a licensed waste carrier and are registered as an Upper Tier waste carrier.
We continuously seek to reduce our carbon footprint, and have been doing so since before we gained our ISO14001 certification.
The introduction of new technologies in the way we operate have contributed significantly to reducing fuel consumption and travel. Measures implemented have included wireless digital data capture to reduce paperwork handling and office visits by field operatives. We also use trackers in our vehicles.
These measures have helped to improve our efficiency and customer service.
We have changed over the whole of our fleet of over 60 vehicles to new low carbon emission models.
Another programme of carbon reduction measures we have implemented is the upgrading of the building fabric to all of our offices. The upgrade includes improved insulation, double glazing, new roofs, LED and low energy lighting throughout the offices and dramatically improved day lighting in our workshops.
