We have a commitment to reducing our environmental impact.
This is important: not just saying that we have made a commitment to reduce our environmental impact, but restating it. Affirming it. Ensuring our whole team is on board and backing us. It's the first of the first steps for us, but unless this commitment is reflected in all that we do, it's just a slogan. It has to be an imperative.
Our company fleet is now 80% fully EV or hybrid.
We don't operate a lot of vehicles, but we are moving towards a fully hybrid or EV fleet as upgrades or replacements are required.
We are an ISO 14001 accredited company.
You often see these sorts of ISO accreditations bandied about, but what do they actually mean? In the case of ISO 14001, it "is an internationally agreed standard that sets out the requirements for an environmental management system. It helps organizations improve their environmental performance through more efficient use of resources and reduction of waste". In other words, it's a standardised means of ensuring environmental impacts are considered and managed throughout the organisation, allowing us to make informed decisions and providing guidance to our suppliers about the way we operate.
