Fieldmans recognise that it is our responsibility as a company to reduce any detrimental effects on the environment that may arise as a consequence of our work. We strive to take action to minimise and control waste at the procurement, installation and disposal stages, whilst adopting measures to limit pollution to air, ground and watercourses and reduce consumption of non-renewable resources.
We aim to be continually proactive in our environmental practices and regularly evaluate our products and processes for their environmental impact. As an independent installer, taking into account the most environmentally friendly products forms a big part of our selection process. We strongly believe in responsible sourcing and with our choice manufacturers continually increasing the number of responsibly sourced products available, we are able to preferentially select the more environmentally friendly products (e.g. FSC certified chipboard panels).
Our Environmental Management System has been assessed and approved by QMS International plc to BS EN ISO 14001: 2004. Fieldmans has subsequently introduced a variety of sustainability initiatives to enhance our performance, including monitoring site environmental conditions and maximising opportunities for reuse of offcuts and recycling.
“In the UK, 13% of construction materials delivered to site go into the skip without ever being used”
At Fieldmans Access Floors Ltd. we believe we have a responsibility to ensure our environment is protected and sustainable. An awareness of environmental issues is increasingly important in society and we hope by fulfilling our environmental objectives we can help improve working practises in the construction industry and reduce our carbon footprint.
Encouraging excellence in Environmental practices
Fieldmans know that achieving our environmental goals relies heavily on our employees successfully implementing our ideals on site. To ensure these are met, Fieldmans runs an Environmental reward scheme incentive for employees who are besting environmental performance on site or continually perform to a high standard. We also operate a red, yellow, green card policy on site. A red card is expulsion after a major breach of environmental site rules, yellow is a warning and green is a reward card for good performance.
