In 2015, Hughes and Salvidge launched an internal initiative called Green Hands.
Our Green Hands Initiative is an internal environmental strategy and action plan for Hughes and Salvidge. The plan includes five key performance categories.
- COSHH (Environmental) & Oil, Fuel and Liquid Chemical Storage
- Waste Management
- Sustainability, Procurement, Water and CO2 Emissions
- Protecting Natural Environments
- Employees Health, Training and Community Benefit
Each category covers one of the main targets currently identified through our existing Environmental Management System. Each performance category is made up of a series action points that are required to enable the overriding target for that category to be achieved, basically ‘steps’ for improvement and development.
Our Green Hands Initiative includes a scoring matrix that enables our SHEQ Team to monitor performance on site and employees have volunteered to be ‘Environmental Champions’ on each of our sites to assist in embedding the Initiative.
We have had fantastic feedback about Green Hands both internally and externally from employees, shareholders and clients who appreciate the extra efforts we go to, to control and reduce our environmental impact.
