PROjEN’s Promise for a more sustainable business
PROjEN the award winning Project Management Company has made a pledge to incorporate sustainable business practices in to its day to day operations.
PROjEN has long recognised that the biggest impact that they can make to sustainability and to reduce carbon emissions is through the services that they offer their clients and the projects that they deliver. However, more recently they have been looking closer to home to further improve their own business practices.
PROjEN are currently working to become accredited to ISO 14001 Environmental Management Standard and have also implemented a number of initiatives such as Cycle and Walk to Work Schemes, a Car Share Scheme and a new Sustainability Forum aimed at driving PROjEN towards a greener and more sustainable business.
PROjEN are also monitoring their energy consumption with the aim of raising awareness and motivating staff to “switch off” rather than use the “stand-by” function on electrical equipment.
PROjEN procure ethical and environmentally friendly consumables including Fair Trade Tea and Coffee and are promoting a Reduce, Re-use and Re-cycle campaign throughout their offices.
John Taylor, PROjEN’s MD commented “For many years we have championed the use of full life-cycle costing for project investment decisions and focused our clients’ attention on to environmentally beneficial projects such as the replacement of ozone depleting refrigerants (R22 etc). We created an Energy and Environmental Compliance Department to help clients reach their own environmental goals through providing greener business solutions and now are we are keen to implement new internal business practices such as the Car Share Scheme and Sustainability Forum with the aim of reducing our carbon footprint as well as ensuring that we operate on a more sustainable basis.”
