Working hard to achieve ISO 14001: 2015
ISO 14001: 2015 is the environmental standard adopted globally, and at Mayfair Fire & Security, we are putting systems in place to achieve compliance. This will help us maintain existing business, gain new business, and help reduce our carbon footprint.
Our goal is to ensure that all activities carried out by all our management, employees, contractors, sub-contractors, and suppliers are done so in an environmentally responsible and sustainable way. We commit to working with suppliers and third parties with similar beliefs or are prepared to work towards our goals. Towards the end of this blog, we will discuss what we have already achieved and what we plan to accomplish in the next decade.
Our employees and those working on our behalf will receive relevant training and experience in order to prevent and mitigate any environmental impact caused by our business activities.
Our environmental efforts so far
So far, we have implemented the following changes to our business to help the environment:
- To support green energy and reduce Co2 emissions, we have successfully installed and commissioned a solar power rooftop system.
- To enhance our determination towards energy saving, all the senior management vehicles have been upgraded from diesel to electric.
- To reduce energy consumption within our organisation across all areas, we have replaced all lighting loads with LED.
- Designed toolbox talk to discuss with engineering teams the environmental impact on their daily use of their vehicles. This will include driving style, idle times, tyre pressures, speed awareness and general maintenance of vehicles, and reducing carriage weight in the vehicle.
- Staff environmental awareness training.
Our target for the next ten years
Over the next ten years, we would like to achieve the following:
- Invest in a complete company fleet of electric vehicles instead of diesel ones.
- Solar energy storage system (battery system) to be installed in the building.
- Remove any form of convection heating in the building and use heat pumps/air conditioning units.
- Timely upgrading of the fleet management (RAMassist) system as per forthcoming regulations and requirements.
