December has started well for Aspect Fire and we were proud to receive the “Carbon Hero” certificate from Mpostcode business hub. The award was given in recognition of our achievements over the past few years to reduce our carbon footprint.
The company’s objectives have all been achieved and below are our original targets
- Reduce Chemical Agent installations by 20% YOY
We have over the past five years continued to promote INERT gas installations which hold a low GWP (global warming potential). We no install 90% Inert compared to just 20% a few years ago.
- Reduce Fuel consumption & CO2 Emissions by 1% against works turnover
Whilst we have a fleet of vehicles, we have made many changes to our travel. We now use a smart schedule programme which reduces travel time and we also provide accommodation to engineers to shorten journey times. We have this year also traded all our company cars in for Hybrid vehicles.
- Reduce waste – eliminate paper reports from Engineer
Over the last 3 years we have eliminated paper waste at our offices by introducing our cloud based engineer scheduling system. Our engineers use tablets on site instead of producing paper. It has made the team more efficient and there is no paper waste.
- Using suppliers with environmental accreditation ISO14001
Since Aspect Fire achieved ISO 14001:2015 we have put in place a process to ensure we source suppliers that work to the same accreditation, this allows us to confidently use sustainable products and suppliers.
