We’re excited to announce that Powerforce are now ISO 14001 certified and working to a UKAS accredited standard! ISO 14001 is an internationally agreed standard that sets out the requirements for an environmental management system helping organisations improve their environmental performance through more efficient use of resources and reduction of waste.
With most of our business operating across the country, we drive a significant number of miles a year and one of the most impactful changes we’re committed to, is our goal to be fleet carbon neutral by 2025. This, along with our partnership with Oblong Trees, helps us make real headway in our mission.
Whilst we’re always looking for ways both big and small to reduce our impact on the planet- have a look at what we’ve achieved so far:
• Switched over 21% of our fleet to hybrid thereby reducing our carbon emissions by 123 tonnes- the equivalent of 6150 trees
• Partnered with Oblong Trees to plant 12 ,000 trees per annum to offset fleet emissions
• Reducing our workplace footprint by relocating our head office to a more efficient working space – our flexible working policy along with the use of key technology in the field, means we have reduced non essential travelling by a staggering 80%! A win for both our people and the environment.
A big thankyou to our amazing people who put in so much effort to help deliver the ISO 14001 certification, it’s a fantastic milestone achieved for both ourselves and Advantage Smollan in reducing our group’s environmental footprint and following our Path to Purpose.
