Over the last few decades, our environment, and thus our ecology, have become a source of concern for us. This has increasingly prompted us to consider, innovate, and implement alternative methods or smaller initiatives to save our environment.
Our 2022/23 sustainability plan involves the implementation of our new “Solar Power Initiative”. By the end of 2023 we are anticipating being 60% powered by solar.
We are extremely excited for this development and see this as a huge step forward for The Hollies to continue the work that we already do:
- Recycle as much waste material as possible
- Avoid using paper whenever possible. For example, sending and receiving invoices and quotes as PDF files via email.
- Equipment that is no longer needed by the company is recycled. Giving away items such as computers and printers that we no longer use is one example.
- Using low-energy light bulbs throughout the building were possible and ensuring that computers are turned off after use.
- Using recycled building materials from sustainable sources
- Purchasing products with a lower environmental impact. For example, our local supplies of fresh fruit and meats from within 50 miles of our shops. We actively seek out local produce to reduce our carbon footprint.
- We offer a cycle to work scheme for the benefit our employees and to help reduce our footprint further. We also encourage members of staff to share vehicles were possible by organising shifts to suit this plan.
- We use instant messaging, video and audio conferencing, the phone, and email to avoid any unnecessary travel.
We acknowledge that HFS Tarporley Ltd has an impact on the environment. Every three months, this dynamic policy is evaluated. We welcome comments, suggestions on our policy and initiatives that you feel would improve our sustainability.
