Environmental Support

'Environment' means many things to many people

There is the green caring side of considering wildlife, ecosystems, natural cycles and global warming, then there is the less glamorous side involving understanding what you are putting down drains and in bins.   We get to grips with your interceptors and your skips, your packaging, your waste oil drums and your bunding to assess if you are operating in compliance with the law and best practice.

Pollution carries heavy costs for your business and the environment and should be avoided.

Our environmental support services include :

  • Compliance audits against environmental legislation
  • Site inspections with practical recommendations to improve
  • Implementation and maintenance of ISO 14001 Environmental Management Systems including policies, procedures and performance metrics.
  • Advice and information on energy suppliers and tariffs
  • Noise assessments
  • Training to staff and management on any aspect of environmental compliance
  • Waste management
  • Emergency preparedness including spills and leaks

Our formal training courses include:

  • IOSH Environment for Business course
  • British Safety Council Level 2 Award in Environmental Sustainability

ISO 14001 Environmental Management Standard

More and more customers are demanding a level of consideration for the environment with tenders and bids specifying suppliers have ISO14001 as a pre-requisite in some cases.  There is no doubt we have become more disposable in our consumer attitudes and this move towards encouraging environmental awareness is long overdue.

ISO 50001 Energy Management Standard

We are also in the unique position to be able to offer energy tariff and supplier advice and the implementation of ISO 50001 Energy Management into your business. This seeks to reduce your energy usage overall and is managed by our procurement specialists.

Case Study

Analysis and Procurement of Waste Management Services for Trent College

This waste management procurement project involved a detailed assessment of the two current arrangements to firstly determine their suitability in relation to the day to day operational needs of the school and, secondly, to evaluate whether or not they were providing value for money. We then provided ongoing post-contract support for the subsequent new agreement.
