Our Fuel consumption reduced by 3% per vehicle, per month, in comparison with our base year data from 2013/14 but increased in comparison with the previous year performance due primarily to our service offer, whereby we are providing an enhanced site delivery service to our clients.
We actively seek to use local suppliers to reduce the amount of journeys made transporting materials and also to support local jobs. If you require a more ecological solution, we can source those products for you.
We support local schools, charities and local organisations via One Vision Housing’s and Pine Court Housing Association’s Community Development Funds, which donate £10,000 of grants each, per year.
We are certified to Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC) and Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) Chain of Custody. We require all timber suppliers to provide evidence of Chain of Custody for traceability of fibre back to the forest of origin. We exercise due diligence, using a risk-based approach to ensure that they do not place illegally harvested timber or timber products on the EU market.
We work within the ISO 26001 framework in Social Responsibility, to ensure we act in an ethical and transparent way that contributes to the health and welfare of society
We have dedicated recycling facilities for confidential waste, cardboard, packaging and timber and during 2016/17, 95% of all waste generated from our office and stores was recycled.
The Group’s Carbon Footprint reduced by 41% in comparison with our base year data which saw a reduction from 9.34 CO₂ tonnes per FTE in 2010/11, to 5.41 CO₂ tonnes per FTE in 2016/17.
Our staff suggestion scheme incentivises staff to think of innovative ways to reduce our footprint.
