Our aspiration is to tread lightly as a responsible business, continuously improving our environmental performance and helping our customers to do the same
Sustainability is important to our customers and reducing environmental impacts is a key part of this. We aim to provide innovative products and services to help our customers achieve their sustainability and environmental goals.
Car emissions target achieved
With a fleet of almost 894 cars and 1,663 vans, emissions from our fleet account for approximately 90% of our
total reported CO2 emissions. In 2015, we surpassed our 2013 target to have more than 75% of our company cars with carbon emissions of 120g/km
or less, attaining 87%. Average carbon emissions for our whole car fleet now stand at 103g/km.
There is still a lot of
work to do in this area to achieve our 2020 target of reducing our carbon
footprint by 50% but we are making good progress.
Switching to renewables
We are steadily shifting electricity contracts at our sites to renewable energy. Our head office in Woking, representing 30% of our total purchased electricity, is powered by renewable energy and by early 2014, 16 of our 41 sites had made the switch to renewable energy. We expect more sites to switch to renewable electricity in 2014 as existing supply contracts expire.
Energy manager training
In 2013, 95 front line energy managers from around ISS UK took part in training with environmental charity, Global Action Plan, to develop the skills to successfully develop and deliver energy-saving projects and campaigns. The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) certified training also provided tools and techniques to help understand challenges and create behaviour change by providing individuals with the ability and motivation to change.
