The environment is our most important resource. As a responsible business, we understand our legal and moral duty to ensuring that the environment is properly managed, to mitigate negative impacts and improve it for future generations. This philosophy is instilled within The Clancy Group’s mission ‘to make life better for all our families’.
We deliver this philosophy through the application of a Health, Safety and Environment policy, which is supported by robust strategies for improving environmental performance and reducing our carbon emissions. Through the implementation of an ISO 14001 accredited environmental management system, we assure compliance to our policies, strategies and the law – whilst ensuring continual improvement of our environmental performance.
To monitor performance and to ensure the effective delivery of the policy and strategies, we have company-wide goals to continue to reduce our carbon emissions and to be completely ‘waste wise’ by generating zero waste to landfill – which is in line with our aim to be a leader in sustainability. To improve our performance further, we also have our carbon emission reductions independently certified to internationally recognised standards.
In line with our strategy of continuous improvement and our 6S Vision, we are continuing to promote our ‘Reduce/Reuse/Recycle’ waste strategy, as well as raising awareness of sustainability and how to make it central to everyday operations. Most importantly, we have targets in place to reduce our CO2 emissions by 25% per £million of turnover by the end of 2020. This is being achieved by:
- carrying out a ‘green fleet review’ in partnership with the Energy Saving Trust
- reducing the acceptable CO2 emissions in our company car policy from 160g/km to 100g/km
- installing vehicle tracking systems to monitor mileage, fuel use, engine and driver performance
- implementing an Occupational Road Risk driver profiling system to reduce occupational road risk
