C02 ENVIRONMENTAL EFFICIENCY
Energy Efficiency and Conservation - Our objectives throughout this company challenges all our abilities to reduce energy consumption, CO² emissions and operating costs efficiency, sustainability and environmental. ISO 14001. '2015 management system standards.
Optimum performance is achieved when office temperatures are between 70°C and 72°C.
Buildings can leak enormous amounts of energy, through heated air escaping in the winter and cooled air escaping in the summer.
Mobile device chargers continue to consume power even when you’re not using them.
Turn off equipment at night
Computers use 10-60~% of power even when on standby.
Install energy-efficient light bulbs
A variety of options are available, including compact fluorescent lamps and LED lamps.
Switch lights off
Like all electrical items, switch off the lights when they’re not in use.
Keep your fridge cool
Keep your fridge at the right temperature and defrost regularly to keep it working efficiently.

Computers. Monitors, hard drives and circuit boards are disposed in accordance with the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE Directive).
Batteries and fluorescent tubes contain harmful chemicals and are recycled at specialist depots.
99% of telecom and electrical cable components can be repurposed through responsible recycling methods.
Think before you print and double-sided printing policies reduce our paper waste.
Our converted vans into crew buses and employ sharing schemes to limit the number of vehicles required at a single site and reduce our carbon footprint.
Our drivers are encouraged to reduce engine output by driving smoothly, accelerating gently and reading the road ahead to avoid unnecessary braking.
Our well-maintained vehicles can improve fuel efficiency by up to 40%.
Being stuck in traffic and getting lost wastes fuel and creates unnecessary CO² emissions. Switch off engine which target reductions in fuel consumption in traffic.
Environmental protection and the prevention of pollution influence our transport policies, which target reductions in fuel consumption, air pollution and the carbon dioxide output of our vehicle fleet.
Our company goals to drive electric:- Transitioning our fleet from fossil fuels to zero emmision vehicles. Not only do electric vehicles provide environmental, health, energy and cost saving advantages. Electric Vehicles also have the potential to provide many economic, technological, and labour market gains in their production, operation, and construction of supporting infrastructure. Meeting Robert Higgins Environmental goals can have very positive economic outcomes.
