To help improve their existing environmental systems and procedures, in order to improve their reputation and profile as a business on the open market.
“I would have no hesitation in recommending the British Safety Council. The service and advice that they have provided was constructive and helpful and has helped us to raise and improve our standards year after year. I have found their auditors to be friendly and very easy to work with over the eight years I have worked with them.”
They enlisted the help of the British Safety Council auditing service to find out where the organisation was performing well and where there were areas to improve. Reviewing areas such as training, monitoring, communication to improve the system we had in place.
They improved their waste management on site so that they now recycle or reuse most of their waste produced on site and send very little to landfill.
Suggested ways to give something back to the environment so they have introduced and managed two biodiversity projects by creating wildlife areas. The aim was to provide a self-sustained mixed herb and shrub vegetation to improve the visual quality of the site, and also promote increasing insect species diversity.
The work put in to achieve these awards also encouraged staff to step forward and become environmental champions with responsibilities for areas of the site with regard to environmental issues.
Winning the Awards improved our reputation and profile within the business market and has helped Hargreaves to win contracts at other locations across the UK and abroad.
