Litter pick in our local area

We Believe that the key to a thriving business is being aware of our surroundings and offering support to our local community whenever we are presented with the task. Therefore, we are strong believers in working towards a cleaner future. We try to find resources close to home to reduce our carbon footprint and invest in transport which can be used for duel loading meaning that the trips we take on the roads are reduced. To reduce electricity from being wasted, we have installed energy efficient heating systems throughout our depots as well as motion sensor lighting in all rooms to reduce the chance of leaving a light on when unnecessary.

As well as actively looking for ways that we are able to improve ourselves in being more conscious of our environmental impact, we are always looking for ways that we can give back to the environment. Installing an insect hotel, hedgehog home and flower beds may seem minute, but they are collectively having a larger impact on our local surroundings. Rebecca Prince and Pip Wood in our Stock and Purchasing Department came up with the idea to take part in a litter pic in the local area. This task was collectively agreed and saw 5 of our team take to our neighboring streets and join each other in cleaning those areas which get overlooked every day.

When it came to achieve our ISO accreditations and maintaining them, it is thanks to our staff and their modern day thinking with new and innovative approaches. Quick to adapt to new changes and policies which may be implemented when working towards reducing our impact on the environment has meant that when it comes to environmental safety, we have been able to use this to our advantage in achieving our ISO accreditation in Environmental Management (14001:2015) alongside our two other ISO accreditations; Quality (9001:2015) and Health & Safety (45001:2018).
