To maintain the highest standards of safety, efficiency and sustainability we are committed to measuring the impact we make to our environment, monitoring our Carbon Emissions and continuing to improve performance in all areas of our business at the same time. We have a reputation in our industry for setting standards for others to follow, and our aim is to build on this reputation with our ‘green’ policies and procedures.
As FORS Gold operators, all of our drivers attend the LoCITY training course, which focuses on minimising the environmental impact of HGVs by reducing emissions through the use of fuel-efficient driving techniques, cleaner vehicles and alternative fuel technologies. We also have workplace travel plans in place to reduce mileage, emissions and promote alternative modes of transport. These are just some examples where we are making a real difference to our environment.
We are always looking to implement other practices to strengthen our environmental strategy, such as:
In 2020 we obtained our ISO9001:2015 (Quality Management Systems) accreditation and we are now working towards our ISO14001:2015 (Environmental Management) accreditation, working alongside Assent Risk Management and choosing BSI to be our certification partner throughout our ISO accreditation journey. We promoted our QHSE Manager from within our organisation who works alongside our environmental representatives from across the organisation to promote our commitment to focus on our environmental objectives and we hope to receive this accreditation in 2021.
