WG&R are committed to caring for the environment, actively promoting awareness and sustainable business practices which permeate through every level of our business culture.
We have structured our approach to sustainability by way of 3 target areas.
Environmental protection and the prevention of pollution influence our transport policies, which target reductions infuel consumption, air pollution, and the carbon dioxide output of our vehicle fleet.
We have converted vans into crew buses and employ sharing schemes to limit the number of vehicles required at a single site and reduce our carbon footprint.
Our drivers are encouraged to reduce engine output by driving smoothly, accelerating gently and reading the road ahead to avoid unnecessary braking.
Well maintained vehicles can improve fuel efficiency by up to 40%.
Being stuck in traffic and getting lost wastes fuel and creates unnecessary CO2 emissions.
Recycling is an important aspect of our business and engenders support from our employees and external agencies to dispose of unwanted/end-of-life items in an environmentally-friendly manner.
Computers, monitors, hard drives and circuit boards are disposed in accordance with the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE Directive).
Batteries and fluorescent tubes contain harmful chemicals and are recycled at specialist depots.
99% of telecom and electrical cable components can be repurposed through responsible recycling methods.
Think before you print and double sided printing policies reduce our paper waste.
