Wednesday 5th June is World Environment Day, organised by the United Nations in a bid to raise awareness of environmental issues. Today, the topic of environmental health is becoming increasingly apparent as we are fast becoming aware of our impact on the planet as a society.
At Spectrum, we take our environmental stance very seriously. It has always been a priority of ours to reduce our operational impact on the environment wherever possible. Sustainability is at the core of our values, and we believe it’s pivotal that we stay at the forefront of environmental legislations. We’re proud to work under BS EN ISO 14001:2015, meaning we follow the environmental management requirements set out by the ISO. We have also been awarded a Carbon Trust Certification which recognises our best practice approach to managing our environmental impact.
Whenever possible, we encourage our staff to be as environmentally aware as possible, from large projects to smaller daily tasks. We are aware that the products and processes used in our industry can typically impact the environment in many ways, however we have ensured our own ways of working minimise this. One way we prioritise this is through our high standards of training. We have become a BICSc Multi Site Assessment Centre, allowing us to personally deliver accredited BICSc approved training courses, meaning our staff are trained in the very best standards of industry excellence.
As a waste management service provider, recycling is of course a key part of achieving our clients corporate environmental goals. As a recent charity event we worked on, we recycled over 10,000m2 of Terram ground sheets to local community groups, just one example of how we aim to reduce waste to landfill and improve our environmental impact on every project.
As we recognise World Environment Day and reflect on the ways we can reduce our impact on the environment, take a look below at some interesting recycling statistics…
