Haigh drives environmental performance and efficiency

02nd Jul 2012

As part of an on-going environmental improvement process, Haigh Engineering has completed a 3 year programme of investing in more fuel efficient vehicles for their servicing, sales and delivery related activities. With a fleet comprising twenty vans and cars, this initiative has resulted in a 7% improvement in efficiency, with additional improvements also brought about by improved route and job-planning software.

Following a recent visit from SGS, the certification organisation, Haigh Engineering is pleased to have successfully renewed compliance to the Environmental Management Systems ISO 14001, with zero non-conformities. The company's aim is to ensure that Quality and Environmental credentials are not just boxes to be ticked, but along with a strong health and safety record, are at the fundamental core of running a solid business and delivering for their customers.

Haigh Engineering's David Brown comments "Modern vehicles and fuel efficient engines allow us to deliver this improvement without compromising any of the processes that our team need to undertake as part of their day to day activities. Vehicle emissions improvement is just one of the strands to our demonstrable environmental strategy.

The design of innovative energy and water efficient products is another channel through which we can bring direct benefits to our customers. We are committed to minimising the environmental impacts at every stage of our process - from production through to service through to products in situ."

Moving forward, the company has plans to further improve efficiencies in the area of logistics with a programme to reduce the average CO2 emissions from their car fleet. A target of 113 g/km has been set which will deliver increased environmental benefits and work towards the continued reduction of the company carbon footprint.
