We focus on providing training programmes to enable our customers to gain greater efficiency out of their equipment. This includes our Eco – Operator training scheme which links data on fuel usage and operator performance enabling, the plant operator to operate the equipment in a more efficient manner reducing air pollutants and carbon emissions.
Our GPS courses enable sites to maximise productivity and reduce the fuel usage across the work area. We are also focussing on the use of hybrid and electric vehicles within our training programme. In addition to reducing the carbon footprint of our operational activities, these actions will also help improve air quality — an issue of growing concern in the UK due to the impact it has on people’s health and the environment.
As we support Balfour Beatty to achieve their 2040 ambition of going beyond net zero carbon, our actions will be guided by the implementation of the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment’s (IEMA) Greenhouse Gas Management Hierarchy.
