How We Do It

The government has a target to bring all UK greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050! Reaching net zero has never been so important. 

We're actively making pledges' to reduce our environmental impact. We track and enhance our clean and green credentials.

 

 

Car Chargers

 

“Imagine how our Green Industrial Revolution could transform life across our United Kingdom. You cook your breakfast using hydrogen power before getting in your electric car, having charged it overnight from batteries made in the Midlands. Around you the air is cleaner, and the trucks and trains, ships and planes are running on hydrogen or a synthetic fuel.”

Boris Johnson, PM statement from November 2020

Sustainability in the Day-to-Day at Ventro

As a company, we make a difference in the communities and surrounding areas we work in.

Sustainability-Conscious Procurement

Sustainability-Conscious Procurement

Recognising our role within broader society, all materials are sourced from branches local to the works where possible. This is whilst maintaining procurement and supply chain management to achieve value for money and ensure quality service to our clients. 

In addition, our procurement team promote free and fair supply chain opportunities for local small and medium-sized enterprises through 'Meet the buyer' events during mobilisation, ensuring sustainability objectives are reflected through our partnerships.

Sustainable Transport & Fleet

Sustainable Transport & Fleet

We consistently take measures to reduce our carbon footprint. We do this is through carbon avoidance, utilising our strategic partnership with remote video meetings and workshops we can reduce travel to site. As a company, we have introduced cycle-to-work incentives to eliminate carbon emissions further. Alongside logical and environmentally sensitive route-planning between sites by the Regional Project Managers, has enabled us to cut our CO2 emissions by 13% over the past two years.

As part of our pledge to reduce our fleets environmental impact we have installed 5 EV charging stations at our head office to charge zero emission vehicles. Since doing so we have reduced our overall emissions by 25%.

Waste Disposal Challenge

Waste Disposal Challenge

We are focused on significant waste reduction and have achieved a 47% reduction in the amount of waste that has gone to landfill in the year 2022.

Although fire alarm and emergency lighting materials are not made to be recycled exactly, as a registered waste contractor, obsolete equipment is disposed of locally and correctly according to the waste type.

Recycling

Recycling

Recycling is a fundamental part of our Environmental Responsibility; we have continued to look at ways of reducing the environmental impact of our activities through minimising waste management. Our commitment to environmental change is backed up by the performance statistics provided through our waste management scheme. We saw that 90% of our onsite waste was recycled during 2021, exceeding our target of 85%.

At Ventro, we closely monitor waste management and explore further green options including discussing and reporting on our deliverables as an agenda item at monthly progress/review meetings, in view of continuously improving our environmentally friendly practices.
