How We Do It

GAND: the Grow A New Door initiative. We have our own Net-Zero emissions targets. We help the wider community in their efforts.

We're actively making the Green Business Growth Pledge to reduce our environmental impact. We demonstrably track and enhance our clean and green credentials.

See how on this page.

Grow A New Door Initiative

This Is a Mutually Beneficial Partnership Between You, Our Service And the Planet

The GAND initiative is our way of helping reverse the natural deficit created by us all cutting down 10 billion more trees than we plant every year.

Did you know deforestation creates what’s called ‘nature-deficit disorder’? And it’s linked to causing depression, anxiety and even problems such as ADHD.

For every fire door we install, we plant a tree.

Because if we could at least sow the seeds to match the same number of doors we installed, we could meaningfully contribute to a sustainable replenishment program.

'Restoration of natural woodlands is proven to bolster the health of our wildlife by restoring biodiversity for various niches in the food chain, which benefits all subsequent species further up the chain.'

Sustainability in the Day-to-Day at Ventro

It’s a company value to make a difference to the communities we work in. GAND’s one initiative, but our day-to-day operations also help, too.

Sustainability-Conscious Procurement

Sustainability-Conscious Procurement

All materials used on your site will be locally sourced where possible. We manage this as part of our nationwide supply chain that helps keep costs and lead times efficient.

Our Commercial and Procurement teams work well in advance. This helps them make sure lead times are short and deliveries are managed with the environment in mind.

Sustainable Transport & Fleet

Sustainable Transport & Fleet

We always reduce and naturalise our carbon footprint. Wherever possible. From smaller initiatives like more remote meetings and home working, to car share schemes and conscious route-planning between sites.

We have Regional Project Managers who know their areas and have helped reduce our CO2 emissions by 13% in the past two years.

Waste Disposal Challenge

Waste Disposal Challenge

We are focused on significant waste reduction and have achieved a 9% decrease over the last year.

As a registered waste contractor, obsolete equipment is disposed of locally and correctly according to the waste type.

Recycling

Recycling

Fire alarm and emergency lighting materials aren’t made to be recycled. But, as part of our drive for a sustainable future, obsolete equipment is now recyclable in many instances.

Thanks to our proactive approach to waste reduction and management, 94% of our on-site waste is now being recycled.

Taking Sustainability Seriously Is a Company-Wide Attitude

We all understand the need for urgent action. This is how we foster a sustainable culture inside Ventro and with people who employ us for fire safety.

  • All project staff are trained and educated on climate change. We’re all carbon-literate on how our everyday decisions are generating CO2. This embeds a low-carbon, green way of thinking in our personal and business habits.
  • Our supply chain is vetted through our procurement process. They must demonstrate their sustainable approach and we monitor this on an ongoing, monthly basis.
  • Technicians’ vehicles are checked for emission levels and are all low-emission models. Our team is trained in energy-efficient driving and maintenance habits, too. This has reduced our average fuel consumption by 19% from 2 years ago.
